Do you remember when I showed you this:
That was the mini quilt I sent to bahamadawn (aka Kim) for our private Easter swap. Well, yesterday I got the one she sent me:
Isn't it the cutest? I had seen a similar quilt on a cover of a journal that she was selling at some craft fair where she lives and made a "hint" on the photo in her flickr stream, hoping that she would make me something like it and she got the hint. I just love it! We have very similar styles and both love color, and whimsy! She also gave me some hints on her quilting which I must try soon. Thank you, Kim!!
Then, I finished another commission wall hanging this week. My client wanted flowers and birds and told me that her favorite colors were blue and purple. (Neither of which was too prevalent in my color palette of fabrics, I'll have you know.) Needless to say, I fixed that with a quick trip to my quilt shop! Oh geeze...what a shame!! LOL (I am always looking for an excuse anyway!!) I drew the concept and had everything but the middle object......my husband told me that the 4 birds (which were already drawn) should be looking at the sun. I must have looked at him like he'd lost his mind, because he left the room sulking....LOL! Hello! Where is the fun in that and besides, who looks at the sun? No, I had to come up with something way more fun so I slept on it and the next morning knew exactly what they were looking at:
They were looking at "LUNCH!!!" And that's what I called it:
It ended up at 20 x 16 inches and my customer is happy! Believe it or not, she doesn't even have it yet. It's on it's way to Norway but she was kind enough to give me permission to show all of you. Wasn't that nice? I guess it will be hung in her sewing room so she can smile everyday! How fun!
I'm already sewing something else. Nothing too exciting, but it's keeping me busy for now. Until next time........stay happy and be well and thank you ever so much for being a part of my creative world. I cherish each and every one of you!!!
