Stairway to Heaven Baby Quilt

This baby quilt was made back in 1996 for my friend Marla who left her surgery residency after the fourth year to pursue her love of languages.  She now does medical translation work for John Hopkins.

The center area of the quilt is composed of courthouse step blocks.  I machine pieced the quilt but had Scottie Brooks do the hand quilting for me.  The quilt measures 38.5 in X 61.5 in.

The young man holding the quilt is the “baby” it was made for all those years ago.  Thank you Marla for the photos.

Another view with it oriented upright.
A close up to show the lovely fabrics.
