Batik turning 12

I'm making 3 quilts for a co-worker who wants to give them to her adult children for Christmas. This is my first - and probably last - commission job.

Pattern: Turning 12
Fabric: Connecting Threads fat quarter bundle

nicely done.

Well you do gorgeous work. I can see why you were asked to make quilts for someone.

Beautiful!! Love the batiks. I know it is hard to make a quilt someone else has requested -- I do surprise quilts much better. Great job!!

Great quilt! Commissions are a good way to suck all the fun out of quilting, aren't they?

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.

Really, really pretty! Love the pattern and the fabrics. Your work is amazing.

love it. the batiks are great

Your batiks are beautiful and the pattern works well with them. A really beautiful quilt.
I can understand your not wanting to take on commissions. I made one quilt for a woman. She was really pleased and I was rewarded handsomely but the pressure to please and perfection was enormous. Now, I make a quilt, if you like it we can talk about a price. Less stress for me. I have to admit, I hate to sell or give away my quilts. :) :)

Very pretty. You did a great job.

Nice Quilt! Never say never..... cause you never know. Quite often I think "never again" but then, I do it again.

runswithscissors 10-04-2012 07:53 AM

Love the batiks!

Why your last commission quilting? They're beautiful.

JanTx 10-05-2012 08:11 PM

Last commission? Too much pressure. I want to please, but it's so hard to tell exactly what someone wants. I'll make and sale - if you like it you can buy it - but not going to take a vague request and try to make something from it. The lady bought 3 quilts from me and was thrilled about each one, but ... the second guessing and self-doubt just wasn't worth it.
