After much hard work by many people, I finally finished Jo's quilt! I delivered it to her today and saw gorgeous little Otto.
It seems like a long time ago that I was collecting some of the finished blocks at the Maternity Coalition Xmas pizza party at Bruce & Erika's:
These were the washed fabrics for the sashing and binding, which Jo picked out:
Thanks to everyone who gifted some lovely scraps for the posts:

It was an absolute pleasure to coordinate this quilt for Jo, to honour her as a dear friend and fellow activist. I also loved sharing my newfound love of quilting with you all!
