First Commissioned Quilt!

The Opportunity to Create My First Commissioned Quilt came just as I was completing the Picnic Quilt.  I was having a coffee with a new friend and had been talking about how I was so enjoying the vibrant colours I was working with.  As we parted he said  “send me some photos of your quilt….”.  Soon after when I had done just that, the email arrived…”I LOVE it…Please could you make one for my daughter?  “

Well, I was a mixture of excited and daunted.  The brief for his 6 year old daughter was ..’very girly, bright colours, pinks and she loves angels and fairies…’

I loved the process of exploring the fabric shops for ideas and fabric.  It did not take long before I was away…
