I really struggled to come up with a design when I got this commission. Seriously struggled. And then I had work to do for my husband's and my company, and a holiday looming. I was falling into a blind panic. I rejected idea after idea. And my brain was having a major freak out thinking I was headed for failure.
So I came up with this idea, and chain pieced like a mad woman. I posted this to Love Patchwork & Quilting about six hours before we left for our Swedish holiday. I was more than a little relieved (as you can imagine), and happy too, because despite the panic and stress I am really happy with what I eventually made. The fact that the pattern does not fall on a 45 degree angle really appeals to me. As do the colours.

Keeping projects secret is the hardest part of making commissions. I am so pleased to finally be able to show you this. Please remember that when I start humming and hawing and hiding things from you again. It is not by choice, but necessity and eventually I do get my ta-dah moment.
Issue Fourteen is actually chock-a-block full of Christmas ideas so if you have started turning your mind in that direction and started making gifts then this is the issue to buy. I love the cover quilt myself. It totally works for my colour loving brain.
