    Another dragonfly wall hanging

    I got a commission to design and make a dragonfly quilt. When I was done, DH wanted one of his own, to be 28"x14", so it would fit on the small available space in his man cave. (He has more than a dozen quilts displayed.) The second one is my original.

    I can see why he wanted one of his own. I like them both!

    I love the translucent wings on the second piece. Beautiful background fabric too. It's nice that your husband loves your work. I'm lucky that way as well.

    That has to be the greatest compliment you can get from your spouse!

    Both of them are very pretty. I'm glad someone else's biz is doing great. I'm just getting started by putting my name out there. But, no takers yet. I get my biz cards soon. I ordered them from vistaprint.com. I hope it helps. How much do you charge for your quilts? I'm afraid my prices may be too high.

    I want to thank each of you for your kind comments. Yes, my DH is very supportive.

    I have only a few from whom I would accept a commission, so most of my work is for close friends and family, or comfort quilts, especially for children in foster care. I think that in my remote area, there is little market to pay a fair price for a quilter's work. I often make a quilt for no particular person, only to find that it is greatly needed somewhere. My DH often hears of these needs, giving us a chance to improve a life.

    both are so pretty
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
