Sometimes one needs to just sit and ponder...
Well, if you thought you missed the "sick" bullet a few days earlier, and you now find yourself red nosed and sneezy after all, you are more then happy to just SIT.
I'm nursing my tea, and hoping to get over these sniffles by Monday when I am at the Keystone Quilters guild, in Quakerstown, PA! I'll be laying in bed all day today, binding three quilts watching Netflix...
Any good recommendations?
I feel I've seen everything, and I'm a bit tired of over the top violent shows...
Honestly though, I did not sit around to much yesterday, I have six quilts on my design walls in my studio right now, and I worked a bit on every quilt.
Keeps they day going along nicely!
I will admit to nearly falling asleep in my blue chair yesterday...I took a mini break, and dozed for a few minutes...
Yes the Blue DWR(Double Wedding Ring) is still only design wall... It is a commission quilt for a client, until last week.
Here's what happened.
My daughter came over to the studio and said,
"Oh! I still love that Blue DWR so much. "
She said, "Does it have to be a commission quilt? "
I said, "Why?"
She said, "Because I want it for my wedding quilt."
(My daughter is 14)
I said, "Really you like it that much?"
She said, "YES, it's so me!"
I said, "Well, then It's yours"
Am I the only one who makes her daughter a DWR wedding quilt at age of 14....
How can I say now to her for that?
So when I was in MA, last week, I bought a whole new bag of BLUES, and have now drawn up an entirely new pattern for the NEW commission Blue DWR, (still due in April. ) LOL
Here's a peak inside my BAG OF GOODIES!!!
Indigos with a few pops of bright inside... I can't wait to cut into them!
All of the quilts on my walls right now, are quilts made for commissions...
This means, that they are not for a magazine or quilting industry projects...
These are quilts I've been asked to make for various people. A few customers have 3-4 of my quilts already and they keep coming back for more. A few are new customers, who've seen my work either in magazines or at the Museum in Wisconsin.
Making a quilt for someone who truly loves what I make, is the biggest honor there is as a quilt maker. I always make the quilts I want to make. Whether it's a magazine quilt, or a commission, I get to make my own idea, my own fabric selections, my own designs. And I feel very blessed that I get to do this...
I'm a kid in my own candy store, playing and finding JOY everyday in my workspace....
... And making one for your daughter, who comments on how beautiful a quilt is,
that just melts my heart, and puts the cherry on top!
