SOUVENIRS

Hubby took our youngest son down to the Vancouver airport a couple of days ago because he is off to Germany. He brought back a few little souvenirs. I may or may not have dropped a hint.........




Yesterday I went to Katja's to see if I could find backing for my Beach House quilt and look what I found-----WAVES !



This is a whole lot of 3-D bow tie blocks for a little commission quilt.  So pretty and girlie


Right now I have a full 12 hours ahead of me before I have to pick up hubby. I am going to make the most of it    : )

Have a great week end!

Lucky you to have all those chevrons in your stash. You just know how often they'll come in handy! And I love that wave print. Can you tell me who made it? Would like to nab some of that for myself! A commission, huh? In 30 years of making quilts, no one has ever asked me to make them (and pay!) for a quilt. How did you get that to happen? I wonder if my work is perceived as inferior? Or my fabric choices aren't appealing.
