This month's block came with the story of the death of the great-grandfather whose service inspired the quilt. The block is called Dove in the Window.
Vicki Welsh sent me some of her remnant shibori-dyed fabric with my custom order for the borders of this quilt. Two of the blue pieces wound up in this block. I cut my four corner triangles out of a more solid area on the edge of the darker one and really like the effect - but the intersecting diagonal lines on the center pieces are gorgeous.
