I am well started on Erica’s commissioned quilt. It’s such a pretty quilt based on one she happened to see in my Etsy shop some time ago. She asked me if I could make one in queen size as a wedding quilt for her upcoming nuptials. Of course, I agreed and we set to work.
She chose the majority of fabrics, but I added a few that I picked up in Houston that have a modern edge to them. I love the mix of hot pink and touches of lime green and red.
Don’t they play well together? Could they be even a smidge more girly? If so, I don’t know how.
On Saturday I got busy and started cutting squares. One small package arrived already cut into four inch squares, but that was too small, so I stitched them into seven inch blocks and cut all the other squares 7 ½ x 7 ½ to match. Then the fun began. Although I was careful not to put two squares together, it was really a matter of throwing two squares together and chain stitching as fast as I could.
Today I started matching rows two by two. I ended up with an occasional “aww, two like ones together,” but it’s not too bad. Tonight I am almost ready to load it onto the long arm.
