Commissioned Quilt "Dress Form Silhouette"
I have been commissioned to make a lap quilt for a client who is planning to give it to a special lady who started a food pantry at her church and who has brought on board quite a few church members to assist her in her efforts. According to my client, the future recipient also loves to sew and likes neutral colors, so the client and I came up with a design that will not only keep her warm but also reflects her hobby. The quilt will need to be ready by the end of the month, which is when church members plan to give it to her. I've begun the actual quilting of the layers using "stitch in a ditch," and I am pleased with how it is turning out. Even though it is still pinned and obviously there is more quilting to do, I thought I would give you a peek.
Here is a close-up of the silhouettes.
More quilting and then binding and then I'll be back to show the finished product.
