I'm working on my first commission. Well, kind of. I once quilted a very small wall hanging for someone who was putting it in a craft fair. But this is the first quilt commission. I'm making a throw out of a deceased gentleman's golf pants. My cutting area is overrun with pants!I'm doing a simple square in a square. This block is deceiving because the center pants happened to be patchwork already. In reality, there are only two fabrics per block.
So far I have 14 out of 30 blocks done. I'm trying for contrast between the two fabrics so that in the end I can alternate between light and dark for the outsides of the blocks. They'll be set 5 x 6 and the blocks will be trimmed to 9 inches finished (I hope). I am piecing them on muslin, which is a decision I'm glad I made. You can see here where I've done a little fussy cutting.
Wish me luck on this project. They're not the fabrics I'd normally work with, but it's been reflective for me. Plus, getting paid for making a quilt is very nice! If you don't hear from me in a few days, listen for muffled sounds coming from my sewing room. If so, send help!
