So I have an announcement. I've been thinking about offering my quilting services for others but I wasn't sure if I'd really enjoy it. I love quilting for me but would the stress of quilting for someone else in a certain timeline make me a little crazy? (Crazier than I already am.)
I decided to offer it up as a giveaway prize for the #sweatnsew entrants (the Instagram healthy & fitness peeps that support each other during their efforts to get healthier - open to all, if you are on Instagram, by the way).
As it so happens, a friend I had already met in real life, Safieh, won and sent along this beautiful top with the request for baptist fans. I did have a few moments of heart palpitations when I unfolded the top and saw how pretty it was. Honestly, what did I get myself into? After a few minutes, I realized I was up for the challenge. I would not ruin it, I told myself.
I asked about thread, thinking that with the prints and grey, a pink would be pretty. Safieh gave me the go ahead so I loaded her up on the frame and got going.
So, here's my before presentation to quilt owner shot.
Thank you, Safieh, for trusting me.
