I was asked to make a baby quilt to be given away as a gift. Of course I said yes, and then was completely terrified. To make something for someone else is a very different feeling and process. There were so many choices that normally I would just get on with without really putting too much thought into…I have this material in my stash so I will use it……if I want shocking pink and orange together thats ok……..a bit wonky but I like it…….you get the idea? But a commission is different. I think I over thought it for a while and got a bit scared of it, I couldn’t help wondering if they would they hate it? Material was selected, and luckily I didn’t have to make that choice or I may still be in the shop now! And then to the design. Do what ever will look nice they said. Oh the possibilities. I deliberated for a long time. I nearly went super complicated but in the end my rational side kicked in and I chose a simple four -patch with a border. I think it looks lovely and the person who I made it for does too. But the test will be today when she delivered it to its new owner this afternoon. If someone gave me a similar gift I would be over the moon, lets hope they are too.
