chevron and stripes quilt

I just adore this fresh new twist on the traditional Dresden Plate quilt.  My friend, Jean, took modern chevron and striped prints and turned them into four of these large-scale blocks.  She stitched them to a field of solid medium blue and then generously donated the finished quilt to Cradle Moon.  (All proceeds from Cradle Moon go to Africa Inland Mission to support my daughter and son-in-love in Lesotho.)

Isn't it fabulous?  This one-of-a-kind work of art could be hung on the wall for a instant eye-catching  focal point.  Or it would be equally stunning used as a crib quilt in a modern nursery.  I imagine any baby would be completely mesmerized by all the bright colors and bold patterns found here.  What a great tummy-time mat!  

Jean does beautiful work.  All cotton and machine quilted this piece measures over 40 inches square and has a navy blue back.  I'm pleased to offer this gorgeous quilt for sale.
