After much indecision and a summer of designing the quilting, quilting and un-quilting :), I finally finished this custom quilt for my customer and friend in Newmarket. She pieced the quilt for her husband and he quite liked the end product. The process was a learning experience for me! The most valuable lesson I learned was not to let the customer give me her designs for the quilting. I will do what I think is right and works for the quilt. The customer needs to trust my judgement.
Update-This quilt won fist prize for Vietwer’s Choice at the East Gwillimbury Quilt Show. Congratulations Margaret!
