A week of finishes - Day 4 ....

It's been a week long of finishes so of course I am going to link up to Finish it up Friday over at Crazy Mom Quilts!

So previous finishes this week include:
a cute little quilt for Project Linus, click here

an ATC for a swap, click here

and a Harry Potter cushion, click here to see more and a very cute Dobby wallhanging!

The biggest finish however was the longarming of my first customer quilt!  What a range of emotions that provoked - before I started I was excited but really apprehensive, then I was nervous, then I thought things were good, then I had a problem with my machine and then I just wanted the quilt finished and off the frame!!  It certainly was a learning curve both emotionally and technically.  I'm not returning it to the customer until next week but I hope she will be pleased.  She asked for stippling around the applique and then a sunflower design on the pieced border.


Looking forward to visiting some others in the linky party and see their finishes this week. x


  1. You certainly have had a full week!! The quilting on the appliqué looks wonderful, on a really beautiful quilt! I can understand the "learning curve" of is all different when we are doing for someone else, isn't it! I think ya done great!

  2. Congrats on your first long arm customer! It came out beautifully and I am sure she will be one happy customer. And that Harry Potter pillow? Totally adorable. :)

  3. You have been busy. It's a great relief when that first client quilt is finished. It looks great and I am sure she will love it.

  4. You have been busy! Congrats on finishing your first customer quilt! It looks fabulous, love that stencil. Did you make it yourself? I love pounce - I know some people do not like it but I really have never had issues with it. Beautifully done! Your customer is sure to be pleased :)

  5. A busy week for sure. I love that Harry Potter pillow. Congratulations on your first customer finish. I can imagine all the emotion involved. I think the quilting looks great and I'm sure she will, too. Well done - now enjoy the weekend!

  6. That is a big week. Well done on finishing your first customer quilt - doing something for money is much more nerve-wracking, I find, but your quilting looks spot on. I love your little wintery trading card too.
