First Customer Quilt and Pricing

Happy Friday Everyone! This was a big week for me! I did my first “customer” quilt. Customer is in quotations because it is for my mom and she will never have to pay me, because, hello! She’s my mom!  That being said, I treated her/our quilt like I would have any other quilt and did my best work on it.

You may remember me piecing some Preppy the Whale blocks back in May.

Whale Blocks - http://sewbittersweetdesigns.comWhen my whales were combined with my mom’s whales we ended up with a gorgeous baby quilt! The quilt turned out precious and we decided that the quilting needed to add some movement to the quilt. Check out the waves that I added going in opposing directions.

This quilt is 45″ x 47″ which means it would fall into the hourly quilting category for my pricing. Please checkout the Long Arm Services tab at the top of my blog to see more about my pricing.

Here is a fun finish shot. Now this quilt isn’t truly finished yet because it isn’t bound, that’s my mom’s job because I’m not the biggest fan of hand work. I will be shipping this to her as soon as I finish her second baby quilt!
