summer job


this commission came along to generate a bit of income and to keep me busy while hibernating in a/c for the next few months....a queen size, cream-colored DWR quilt...i know, it's a huge undertaking but planning to have it finished before retreat end of october.  once the kaffe wallhanging (see below) is finished some time next week, will begin quilting the DWR in earnest....by then the 365 will be up to date as well...that's the rough plan right now.  the person who started the quilting just got too busy and from her stitching, can see why....very tiny stitches taken not in ditch and not beyond seam allowance, so she was quilting thru 3 top layers, the batt and backing....i quickly informed her that my stitches are not that small.  i am going to try and follow her spacing, but since i use a rocking stitch, may not be possible.  also, not yet basted either....she'll have the option to decline once i've given it a try....


as for this small piece, have one more square to quilt, then a few edging triangles, then bind it up for a june finish.   never again will a complicated quilting design be chosen for such busy fabric.... but i love the colors....wowza!  and wait til you see the binding...kaffe would approve!

  1. Oh my, the Double Wedding Ring is so pale that it's hard to make it out but it must be magnificent in person. Your Kaffe project is no shrinking violet, though, LOL! Wowsa is right!

  2. Definitely a "low volume" DWR!
    What a contrast that is from the Kaffe quilt in the next photo! : )
