Put your foot down is a weekly linky party to share your WIP’s and finishes, and hopefully make new friends along the way.
Welcome, I invite you to stop in every Thursday and linkup your fabric arts.
The sewing room has been humming and is now a disaster area. Enter at your own risk!
After finishing the June Island Batik challenge quilt (you can see that here) work began on a commissioned quilt. It is a design I created a couple of years ago, a paper pieced quilt.
This was the design her daughter liked but she is left it up to me, “surprise me” she said. Can’t wait to see her reaction when she picks it up. The “surprise me” quilts always make me so nervous because what if they are not happy, what if it’s not what they expected? Have you made a commissioned quilt where it was left up to you and how do you deal with the what ifs?
There was a little fabric left so I used the AccuQuilt bib and flower dies to make a bib. For a burp cloth I folded my fabric in half on the bib die and placed it below the neck strap.
I also made Wesley a few more bibs.
Instead of making and printing my own quilt labels I bit the bullet and ordered some on Etsy.

New Dinosaur Quilt
While telling one of my truck driver friends about the dinosaur quilt I made for Elliott, he said he’d like one for his grandson. He left the design up to me. All of the patches except the large blue on the right were cut with the 8″ Mix and Match Qube from AccuQuilt. The fabric is Island Batik. The lighter fabric is Rice from a bolt I purchased, it is very soft shades of mottled blue with specks of a light gold or beige. The other is Cloud and both are from the IB Foundations line.
Isn’t this stunning, shared by Gretchen’s Little Corner? The feathered star is on my short list of to-do’s.
We can all use a smile in this strange and crazy world we live in. Quilted hearts are much better than painted rocks. Kathy from Hazel’s Daughter is spreading the love.
