I recently got commissioned to make a quilt for a very sweet Tennessee gal to gift to her husband. He’s an avid squirrel hunter, and loves his squirrel dogs.
We chatted back and forth via email to nail down a design she wanted for a twin-sized quilt for him.
Then I went fabric shopping (you know that hurt me) and I sent her a picture of what I got. There was this main camo print:
And two solids and a marble-y tan to go with it:
Once she put her stamp of approval on the design and the fabrics, I got started. I had to appliqué all the dog and tree silhouettes. That was the most time consuming part.
And I wasn’t in love with my first attempt at the appliqué, so I regrouped and started over, and it went much more smoothly.
I sent her a few progress pictures while I was working, just to make sure I was on the right track.
I sent her one more picture of the completed top, just to make sure she was OK with it. She asked for an all-over meander for the quilting, which actually looks like camo, so it was very fitting for this quilt.
Then I put the binding on and shipped it off to her.
She received it yesterday, and said that she AND her husband both love it very much. That’s always a huge relief! I’m glad to know the quilt is loved and has a good home.
