New this week

This quilt was a real challenge! The customer wanted Amish looking patterns in each block and the borders. She said she especially liked feathers. Voila! Two full days work, but well worth it.

Commissioned baby quilt

I recently got a commission to replicate a baby quilt from the 60's for a customer whose daughter is now having a baby. The customer's mom made the quilt for her from a kit and gave it to her when she was expecting her daughter. It really is a cool idea to give the same quilt to the now grown and pregnant daughter for her baby. I made a couple of slight changes to make the kitties stand out a bit, and made the whole thing bigger per her request. I think it turned out pretty good considering I only had a 4X6 photo of the quilt to go by! Susan
