I made a sofa size rag quilt throw from these fabrics last year and took it to the Holiday Show I did with Di. It didn't sell at the show but I sold it later online and it has been one of my best selling rag quilt kits ever. So I got a call a while back from a lady who had seen the quilt at the show and tracked me down online but she doesn't sew, so she was looking for a finished quilt. Of course I agreed to make it for her, and of course that was right when I was starting on my redecorating project. (which I expected was going to take about a week or two) But no worries, she said she didn't need it until November and that seemed a long way off at that time, to me anyway.
It was in the back of my mind that I needed to get started on it. I have been meaning to go look for one of those Procrastinators Anonymous Calenders, but I just haven't gotten around to that yet.
The original quilt had a sage green chenille in it which I can't find anymore. So I had to sub some other fabrics in the baby quilt kits. I had never actually made one from the fabrics in the kit, so it was kind of fun to see how it turned out. I think the green damask is pretty. And there is a pink minky with embossed roses that I added too. They don't really show up in the picture.
I am such a shmuck, I always feel bad when I have too much going on and can't wiggle my nose and whip out orders instantly. And then I worry that my customer might get a bad impression of my business. So I often feel the need to add a little something extra to make up for my guilt. And who doesn't love a little freebie gift?
So she was very happy with the quilt and the cute little cupcake. And I am happy to get back to my regularly scheduled chaos.
