It makes me feel extra lucky to have repeat customers from my Etsy store. It's one thing for a customer to buy once, and I'm grateful for that!-- but it's a whole other level of loyalty to come back for more.
And some customers attain Fairy Godmother status.
Case in point: I'm now processing my third large custom order for a repeat customer in Australia.
This was the first order, in March
2 runners, a placemat set, and a coaster
set in Autumn colors.
(See this post for more details)
Next, a similar set in Spring colors, done in yummy Kaffe Fassett fabrics:
I completed the whole order, packed it up, took it to the Post Office and THEN realized that I had forgotten to photograph the finished products.

It only seemed natural to do a set for Christmas, right?
(I left my camera out so I wouldn't forget to take pictures before packing this order for shipping this morning)

All of these projects have had the same random pieceing style. I cut different size squares and rectangles from the fabrics I was using, then sewed them into pairs, then sewed the pairs to each other, etc. until the piece was large enough.

|coasters 6" square|
It's a modern and certainly vibrant look for the holidays but I was thinking that since Christmas is a mid-summer holiday in Australia, this brighter style makes a great deal of sense.
