    Of course I spent a bundle. Thank you so much for this site. I have wanted to try my hand at this but haven't felt as if I knew enough. Can't wait to try now.

    Thanks for sharing this. I've wanted to try some landscape quilts. Saw Lenore Crawford's work and was so inspired, but didn't know how to start.

    I had my client over yesterday to discuss her commission - she wants a wall hanging, 24" square approx, as a memento of a the garden of her old house - many miles away so I can't go there and she only had one photo of the house NOT the garden. :mrgreen: Luckily she's a writer by trade so was very descriptive of how it was but I hope I can translate her memory of that garden into a quilt successfully! I'll start next week, I might be back here for help and ideas. :mrgreen: :D I plan to do a sketch mock up and take that to discuss with her... Oh meant to say Roberta I absolutely adore your Borzoi. :-D
