Commission quilt top finished!

I have been working hard on a commission quilt.  The client wants it for her husband for Christmas.  The fabric she chose is the Anna Horner "Lou Lou Thi" collection.  She bought the "sea glass" fat quarter bundle from www.fatquartershop.com.  I'm sure everyone knows how small the sample shots of the fabrics are... needless to say the fabrics that came were suprisingly more girly than expected!  Either way the fabric was gorgeous and I loved getting to work with it even if it doesn't get to stay at my house!  Hope the client and her husband love it.  Now to send it out to be quilted!

Jordyn's Quilt is Finished!

Its all done.  I tried machine binding this time after finding a tutorial for it online.  It was quicker but not as neat.  Not sure if I am going to try it again or just go back to hand sweing.



September's Sew In

Friday's sew in project this month was for embroidery.  I am a member of the Embroidery Bee on Flickr and was having a difficult time choosing my patterns for the final two of the four blocks that I had to make.  I took a little time off from over thinking it and decided to just go with my first choices.  So, I finished one of them!
