One Quilt Down 3 more to go

Well finally got one of the commissioned quilts done, the top that is. Going on the frame tomorrow for quilting. It started out just 3 quilts then talked to her yesterday and she asked me to do another one. She said just when I can get them done. Yea!! So here is the green one. Sorry on it's side but you get the idea. The other one I'm finishing up is blue and white. different pattern. They are for a couple little girls, one loves green one loves blue. This was such an easy pattern with four patches and 1/2 square triangles, 12 1/2" blocks with a total of 24 blocks, a 3" inner border and a 4 1/2" outer border. Now onto piecing the blocks for the 2nd one. I'm hoping this gets me motivated to sew more this year, plus going on 4-5 retreats this year should help out!! Next retreat is March I can't wait, nothing like fun true friends, great food, and beautiful place to sew.

Thanks Bianca. I hope I get back in the sewing grove also. I'm in the process of simplify my life in some areas to reduce stress so maybe that will help. love your blog BTW

Hey Carolyn, how do you charge for these quilts? I had a couple of people ask me to make quilts for them, and since they weren't clear on what pattern to make yet, I gave them a price by the hour, but that makes them nervous because they don't know how much it will cost.
