Lately I’ve been chugging away at my first commissioned quilt – that’s right someone is PAYING me to quilt!!! It’s a friend of my husband’s cousin, and she’s asked for it to use in her wedding. So I’ve got just over a week to finish. Time to put the pedal down!
I’ll go into more detail when its finished, but as a PSA: not all charm squares are the same size! I didn’t realize this till after I had a fair portion pieced. So with some gnashing of teeth, and strategic trimming, I got the top together. Now its time for dense, dense quilting as an added safety measure – just in case some of those less than perfect seams start to unravel, they won’t get far.
As of last night I have 48% of the quilting done. Almost there!
Time for quilting, quilting, quilting, quilting….
