One of by blogging friends, who I've "known" for about 4 years, asked me, via FB last Wednesday, if I'd be interesting in making a quilt for her, a Queen or King size quilt. I told her I hadn't made one that large before, but I'd like to do it, but only if she's not in a hurry. We started "talking" back and forth on FB; discussing measurements, fabric choices, quilt patterns and stitching options.
Before the discussion was very far along, I got to thinking, this is a lot of work and a lot of fabric, and I've never met this gal IRL, maybe I should ask for a deposit. Logical, but I've never done a commission quilt so I'm taking baby steps, here.
I have several quilting friends, who I've also never met IRL, but who I "know". So I shot off an email to four of them with my question. They all answered back within one day. Isn't that amazing. They all said that I should ask for a deposit, and I did.
This is the fabric she's chosen:
I'll order the fabric, as soon as I have the deposit. The pattern she chose is this one. I think it will be beautiful.
Thanks for stopping by, we enjoyed having you,
