Devon Town

This is Devon's quilt, Devon Town. Ten of the house blocks were inspired by drawings by his siblings, the other eight are mine. This picture was taken in bright sunlight, so the colors look a bit bleached out, but in real life they are very vibrant.

A wonderful quilt Lynne and a terrific way to involve Devon's family in its creation. It's an heirloom.

The quilt is lovely and it's great that Devon's brother and sister drew some of the designs for you.
