My first custom made quilt is delivered .......

I was asked at my first market stall with my new shop if I'd make a quilt for a local lady...........well, it was a tricky process to gather through questioning just what would appeal to her, and I even visited her house to look at the bedroom setting............she wanted a rose in the centre and the colour needed to match her paintwork..........here 'tis..........
 
A lovely colourwash effect........

........the new owner was "thrilled to bits" with the result and I was so pleased with her and her husbands response...........
I am working overtime getting ready for our towns Qouta run Craft and Quilt Fair where I will have my stall.
There is heaps to do..........
I need to thank my newly acquired conscience for reminding me to make a post. Without the prompting I find getting to the computer is usually last on the list of things to do, and it really shouldn't be...........So thanks for keeping me on track Chooky.......you're the best.........do you do other things too like wash dishes via cyberspace, or even sew down bindngs??????.......could do with those things too.......lol..........
I'll be back soon...........maybe I'll beat the conscience reminder next time..........
If you're anywhere near Casino on Saturday pop into the Community Centre for the Craft Fair..........
