First off, I have to admit to having an addiction to 1930's fabrics. In fact, I have some of these same fabrics in my own stash. Think Madison would notice if I traded some of her fabrics in her quilt out for ones in my stash? Yeah, she probably would.
Madison contacted me via e-mail about quilting her quilt for her, and said that she had a special quilt that she was making for her mother, that it had photos of I'm guessing family members in it. In addition this was the first quilt that she had sent out to have someone else finish the quilting for her. No pressure there!
Okay, so we talk back and forth about how to potentially quilt her quilt, and I e-mail asking to schedule and appt. for the two of us to meet. Well, she lives outside of Washington DC, so she won't be dropping the quilt off in person. Wow. Out of all the people she could have contacted about quilting her quilt for her, and she picked me! Wow!
We talked about how to quilt her quilt, feathers that meander all over the quilt top, but not onto the photos themselves. My rule is you don't quilt over faces.
The most recent e-mail from Madison was to ask if her mother could send me some quilts to quilt for her as well. How many "Wows" is that then?
I think that I have the best job in the entire world. I get to play with fun fabrics, meet such wonderful people who are always so happy to see you, especially when you call them to say that their quilt is ready. How lucky am I?
