First Delivery



The first set of doll quilts were delivered last week. There is always some anxiety, especially when people have given me free reign on design. But this was part of the email I received:

Truly wonderful beyond words. I cannot take my eyes off them, even as I type with them on my lap and not wanting to put them away! So worth the wait!

And suddenly the stress goes away.

It is just the best to receive great feedback isn't it?!? Your quilts are beautiful and the feedback is well deserved.

What nice words. And so nice when the recipient actually shares them with you1

I can see why she likes them, they are great! Commissions are nerve wracking and I can't do them any more. I'm glad you were successful.

Congrats on your first delivery. I love the movement you gave the stars with the quilting. That was a clever idea.

I am such a stressed out mess when I am given creative freedom with someone's order. And yes, its the best feeling when they love it!
Those doll quilts are spectacular!!!

Helen said...

Love the quilting on the star one! Fantastic!!

Victoria said...

Very happy that your sweet doll quilts were well received! (Commissioned orders are sooooooo stressful to me. I usually have to say no, just to preserve my sanity!)

They're both lovely, but I especially like the effect of the wavy quilting lines on the bottom quilt. Nice and subtle, but transforming!

I love how you've used a combination of wavy and straight quilting. Lovely!
