Let’s Bee Social #50
Saying goodby is never easy. Back when I took the Fox & Friends 2 out for a photo shoot it was a particularly windy day.
Looking back, it seems the quilt was waving goodby even then.
Back in September, I had entered this remake of my original Fox & Friends quilt into the Fall fair. And won first place in the machine quilted baby quilt section. That is where Maggie met and fell in love.
Maggie contacted me by phone, wanting to purchase the quilt for her yet-to-be-born grandchild. She arranged to come for a personal visit and pick the quilt up at my home. Maggie spoke of her admiration for the simplicity of the design. The blue background and wavy organic quilting reminded her of the sea. Fox & Friends 2 will soon be on it’s way to live in Scotland.
First I had to retrieve the quilt. It was hanging in the fabric shop in Newton where I had agreed to teach a quilt class coming up in January. Will there be a Fox & Friends 3?
In other news…
Sew Fresh Quilts is now taking custom orders for commission quilts. Although I had been reluctant to offer custom orders, I am enjoying the process of working on my first quilt commission. Sharing a finish post soon! Visit the Sew Fresh Quilts shop and see what’s new!
I have been making some recent purchases to replenish the shelves in the sewing room.
