Concentrate Clare

I love making labels for quilts that are gifts and special occasions but I really must concentrate more when doing so...

A Finish

I have been working on a commission that is not my usual style or colours and have enjoyed the process but worried endlessly about the finished product. I mucked up the amount of fabric required and had to buy more-twice and then after consultation with the Sew And Sews had to change one of the fabrics completely. So not a good economic outcome but lovely quilt in the end. It was for 16 year old's boys birthday and needed to capture his UK, Scottish and Danish heritage plus his love of music and drawing and all in greys and blacks. I think I nailed the brief but I convinced the commissioner that red was required. I think I made the right call.
