Those fabrics are really, really pretty in this pattern. And I think I understand where you're coming from when you say no more commissioned quilts. What a lot of pressure it is to make something knowing before hand that it will be sold. Much easier to make it and then be able to say, " Here's what I have - take it or leave it!" At any rate, this is very nice and I like the chance to see the Connecting Threads batiks in a completed quilt.
