Finally I'm Getting My Work Done

Well, I finally feel like I am getting some stuff done. This quilt was a custom order from someone who wanted an only pink and white quilt. I think it turned out very cute!! The flannel backing is actually a Robert Kaufman flannel that I found at Joann's. I love finding good deals at Joann's.

These pillows are just part of a big custom order for another customer. It is for her son's toddler bed. But I thought these pillows were so cute. They are the first pillows I have ever made and I quite enjoyed making them. I just finished the last pillow today which was another applique of a truck which is a small replica of the quilt I am still working on for her.

I am hoping to finish the quilt this week and mail it all to her. I know she has been waiting a while for it all to get done and I am almost there. The entire design and color schemes are her ideas I just created them. I think the entire bedding set is going to look really good together.

Whew, I have been busy....

Well, I have put my last project on hold. I actually picked the border fabric and backing fabric, but I haven't done anything else with it. I really do want to get it going again, but I have had several customers contact me with new projects to do.

Here is one that I just finished for a friend of mine. It is for her nephew and she picked out the cute puppy dog flannel and the pale blue and white minky. I actually took it to get it embroider as my machine is not that fancy. Maybe one day.

Ihave a girls quilt that I am starting today and hope to finish this week for another customer. I love the flannel she picked out and can't wait to see it all come together.

I need more help deciding....

Well, surprise, surprise I am still undecided about how I should finish my rectangles. I hope someone out there in blogland will help me. Eeekk. I really love the rectangles and would hate to ruin the whole quilt because I don't pick the right background and backing.

So I took some pictures and laid out some options. I even took my husband with me but I really think our thought process and taste are totally different.

Option #1:
The dark brown as the border inbetween the blocks and the blue/teal fabric for the backing.

Option #2
This blue background and the brown geometric type flower for the backing.

Option #3
The brown geometric fabric for between the blocks and the blue for the backing.

I know this is a little confusing, but how about one MORE option...

Option #4
Any of the fabrics above without a border between the blocks and just a border around the outside with the blocks but up against each other. I guess I was specifically thinking about this with Option #3. I like the brown flowers but thought it might be too much between the block.

I sure hope some one can help me or at least tell me which options to throw out. I like process of elimination just as much as picking my favorite.
