8 clients + the 'President' = 1 custom quilt project!
It is always fun to design a custom quilt for one client, but when I have 9 clients all involved in the creation of one very special quilt the pressure is on! The mystery box of fabric from Washington, D. C. arrived!
My new clients are mom Sarah (the 'President') and her 8 wonderful children :) Included in the box of fabrics was this wonderful note from mom on the back of artwork by Gemma (kindergarten). They chose the Urban Detritus "Dream Weaver" quilt pattern as the basis for this storybook quilt! Avid readers of fairy tales and children's stories and each child having a "family" animal, they went on the hunt for fabrics that not only had storybook themes but a fabric that represented each child's animal! I heard that finding badger fabric was the most challenging :)
