To thank her for her generosity I thought it would be wonderful to design a quilt specific to her interests and background. Dionne is an extraordinary person. Not only is she a fabulous doula, she is also the founder of The Wahine Project, an amazing non-profit dedicated to helping young disadvantage girls learn how to surf.
So I was very excited to find some wonderful fabrics from Heart's Fabric that fit perfectly with Dionne's surfing and Mexican heritage:
Surf Board Floral
Hula Dolls Grey
Charras Folklorico Women
Here's Dionne with the completed quilt:
I bought a queen size sheet set to use for the backing and also made matching pillowcases:
