I love doing custom commissioned work. I love how it challenges me to work on other's ideas. I get in sewing room overload where everything is stimulating inspiration and I spin in circles..... I hate that feeling. I don't know where to start or stop and nothing gets done. Custom work gives me a deadline, a purpose. It also forces me to work outside my comfort zone. And I get to shop for fabrics because I need them!
This is my sketch from the photo my client sent me. I love good old 5x5 grid paper and colored pencils when I need to get my ideas on paper.
Still in progress on the top. I hope I will be quilting by this weekend.
