My latest baby quilt is complete. This is a commission quilt where I was given free reign - the buyer wanted something in pinks and browns. I was happy to oblige.

Commission Quilts

I have three commission quilts to work on. Two are baby quilts which I'm excited about. Both are for girls and since I rarely make girlie quilts, they will be extra fun. Even more exciting, the buyer has pretty much given me free reign. She requested the first in pinks and browns, the second with flowers. The pattern and fabric are up to me. How lucky am I to get paid to do what I love doing?!

My deadline for the pink and brown quilt is December 15. A little lofty considering its December and I haven't decorated the tree, put up the lights, finish shopping, do Christmas cards and attend several holiday gatherings. But I'm so in love with the fabric and pattern, it shouldn't be a problem to push myself to get this finished.

Here's a sneak peek. I've already given it the name Mochachica.

The Redwing quilt

I finished quilting the Redwing quilt, just in time for my MIL to attach the binding and finish it up for the baby shower she attended in Michigan.

I'm really starting to love the zig zag pattern. In fact, I considered it for my next baby quilt commission. But ultimately, I decided to try something new. It's good to push yourself, right? I should have pictures of a few blocks posted soon!
