A quilt for Doris

Over the years my darling mother -in -law gave  me material.  Most of it was from her skirts/blouses, etc and sadly was usually not something I found v. easy to put into my quilts.   Once she passed away, we were sorting thru' her things and I found a large piece of fabric that had obviously been something once, but she had unpicked it and  it was in a pile with other fabrics in her spare room. 
It was v. vintage looking, with lovely blues & greens. 
It  had a graduated pattern comprising of flowers that were densly clustered along the middle of it with one end  in light floral sprig, and a herringbone sort of check at the other end.
I  had in my mind to make a quilt - using mainly solids, a Denyse Schmidt layout (kind of log cabin but not really), and throw in a few matching prints..........................


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. I love to hear your thoughts. Happy sewing!
