Earlier this spring, I was approached about making two college graduation quilts. The only requirement was the size and one being for a man and one for a woman.
I've been on a batik kick lately and had seen a fat quarter stack at Hamels that I had loved. And I knew there was enough batik fabric at work that I wouldn't need to buy a border.
So one morning, I started ironing and cutting. By the next afternoon the top was finished.
I love this turtle fabric most of all.
I delivered the quilt this afternoon and it was an absolute success. These are the sixth and seventh commissioned quilts I have done this year so far. I'm just thrilled, honored and amazed by that.

4 love it too:
Great batiks and the pattern choice is perfect. Someone borrowed my "Happy Hour" booklet. I need to track it down!
I stress out when someone asks me to make a quilt for a specific person for a specific reason. So much pressure. Doesn't look like you cave to the pressure at all! Gorgeous!
Love how they came out!! So beautifully arranged!!
So pretty, and I love the turtles too. It's always exciting to hear that people are commisioning and buying REAL quilts. Congratulations!
