First commission

Yes I do have my first commission for a quilt. My lovely colleague Annette would like a quilt made by me! How exciting is this. She really loved the colours of the Mod Aqua quilt and as I happen to have made another quilt top of the same fabric (so technically it is not quite a commission) I offered to finish this in time for Christmas (no pressure there....). That does remind me that I have to set up my online shop this weekend too.

Mod Aqua II (yes it is not very imaginative) looks like this:



I made use of the entire aqua pallet of the collection this time in large stripy blocks. The quilt is huge with 2.10 by 2.10 (this 82 by 82 inches). I will create the back largely from the brown pattern and the mixed colours with bright aqua binding.






I think I will quilt it along the strips and will add some detail around the aqua flowers again like I did with the first quilt.



Everybody have a lovely Friday.
