I finished up a commission quilt this week, and I’m delivering it to my client this evening. I first talked about it here, and showed you our inspiration piece. It’s a signature quilt, that served as the “guest book” for the client’s July wedding. Her wedding colors were Truffle Brown and Daisy Yellow, and she had yellow Gerber daisies as her primary flower. I drew up a sketch for her, she loved it, and I prepared the blocks for her prior to the wedding (freezer paper stabilizer on the back of them, pinked edges to prevent raveling while being handled, and provided her with a supply of permanent pens for signatures). I got the signed blocks back from her in late August, and went to work piecing the quilt and creating the applique design.
I’ve never had this issue before, but I had to baste this quilt THREE times, and tear out far too much quilting, because of bunching up fabric on the back. Grrrr… I finally walked away from it Saturday evening, went on a date night with my sweetie, and after Church Sunday morning, went back to basting it fresh for the third time. Third time was a charm.
Here it is in all its (finally) finished glory:
Yellow is not really my color, but this quilt may change my mind about it. It’s so bright and cheerful, I’m going to have a hard time parting with it!
This design may be making a repeat appearance here one day:
And come back tomorrow for another installment of our Halloween Party and NEW GIVEAWAYS!!!!
