|Sarah liked this quilt|
I've mentioned before that I think one of the key components of a moderately successful craft business is having custom work available to customers. So I was terribly pleased when an Etsy customer contacted me about making a quilt for her.
She had seen this quilt in my Etsy shop and wondered if I could make a smaller version of it for her to hang in her new office.
(This quilt is a queen size, more details here).
I could not have been more thrilled to make one of these quilts for her, because it's such a fun pattern. The block is a traditional one called Crayon Box (pattern available here) I think it's nearly impossible to mess it up.
|This is Sarah's custom quilt|
Sarah liked the teal borders and sashing of the shop quilt but the fabric I used then is no longer available (darn you Joann's!!) so I used 2 fabrics from Laura Gunn's "Poppy" collection.
I like scrap bindings on a scrap quilt, so I included one here. For scrap borders, I like to butt the binding pieces together, rather than mitering them.
Since the front is a lot of little pieces, I thought a large scale print on the back would be nice. I had a large piece of this Amy Butler fabric (from the Soul Blossoms collection) plus a few coordinating pieces to fill in.
This picture shows the colors much better.
I'm going to attach a hanging sleeve this weekend, and then it will be ready to send off!
