Superb Patchwork Quilt Made at Kathryn’s Quilt Club

“Vibrato” by Doreen Sullivan

Made by Doreen Sullivan at our  Quilt Club. Doreen made this quilt over a 12 month period. She says she had it rolled up, ready to throw away about a dozen times due to trouble completing the borders! She persevered and we think Doreen’s done a great job. The name reflects the vibrant colours used.
