This is a custom order for a lady named Diane. After I accepted the commission, I found out she lives in SoCal, about 80 miles away. That's a first for me, the other commissions have been spread across the US.
I received the deposit in early August and it was finished today. Diane should have it by early December. Not bad, four months for a completed quilt.
This is the pieced back, I intentionally cut duplicates of the points that formed the leaf points and the seedpods, to use on the quilt back, and I threw in a little gray triangle for variety, can you spot it? The upper photo sure shows off the fabulous Long Arm Quilting by Janiel Miller.
I really love this quilt and I'll be sad to see it go! The finished quilt is 95" x 95".
We still have lots of trees with beautiful Autumn Leaves and some are in the gutter.
When I got down to the clubhouse to photograph the quilt, the auditorium was all set up for an anniversay party. Pretty fancy.
Looks like a good time will be had, tonight. Bob and I skipped the party for our 50th, and went on a 6 week trip, 4 weeks on a cruise through the Panama Canal then on to Europe, then stays in Copenhagen and New York.
May your bobbins always be full,
