So, I was like a kid in the candy store this week, by finally having tieback in my studio! Where to begin! This could be a very long post if I shown you every single thing I did this week! I'll start with this New Commission quilt. Something completely out of my comfort zone! Can you imagine?
I was asked to make a quilt for a woman whose son is graduating from college soon, and getting married. Special right? Well all the fabrics are clothing from all his years! From the Blanket he came home from the hospital in, to the Cub scouts, High school teams, PJ's and maybe even some boxers and swim suits!
Truly a unique bunch of clothing, and the request was for a "Everything but the Kitchen sink" style of my quilts. Like the one above...
Making a quilt that does not LOOK like I have 50 T-shirts included...
Great challenge right?
Well, I am so up for the challenge!
Some of the LOVED fabrics have stains, from being loved so much...
But that's OK, we are trying to use as much of the interesting fabrics as possible.
I'm off to play some more... and PACK for QuiltCon!
Are you going???
I HAVE BUTTONS!!! ( And maybe tattoos too!)
Find me at Quiltcon, say hi, and I will share a button with you!!!
My schedule will be posted early next week...
