Don, My version of Dora

This is Don,
done in blue for a boy.  The pattern, Dora, is from the book 
3 Times a Charm
and was so easy to put together.  The instructions were very clear, with excellent diagrams also.  I just wish I had more time to make a few more from the book.  Someday...

The quilting on this is simple, but works nicely with the design. 
All blue areas were stitched in the ditch, then seeds were added with the aid of the arc of the VersaTool by Handiquilter.
Since the white bars are rather narrow (under an inch), they were left unquilted.  Again, no need to over quilt this.
The border is simply lines that follow the piecing, complimenting without overpowering.  
Can you tell I love to do ruler work??  If you haven't worked with rulers, check out Kim Brunner's class Machine Quilting with Templates on Craftsy.  PS-They're having a sale this weekend!!
