I haven’t posted in a while, but I’ve had a busy few months! My little Etsy shop has picked up a bit and I’ve had a few custom orders. I was super pleased to get an order for two twin size quilts based on one of my early original designs. When I started my shop I was really excited to create quilts of my own design, and this Ellsworth Kelly inspired quilt was the very first to go up in my shop. I sold a few to friends and family and put the design aside. Then, out of the blue, I received an order for two quilts in this design, and I’ve had so much fun working with my customer, selecting colors and fabrics. I just love the orange and pink she chose. Picking the backing and binding was aided with a flurry of pinning–sometimes Pinterest is the best invention. This was exactly the type of work I imagined doing when I opened my shop, and it’s just as much fun as I hoped.
In other news, I made and sold (another pleasant surprise!) a batch of puzzle balls–also fun. And I’ve been working on a really exciting project–something totally new for me that I can’t wait to share with you soon!
