I’ve known Becca for a long time. She bought some of my first potholders and has continued to follow my work and buy it over the years. Like many of the people I know through my blog, I’ve never met her in person and probably never will. But a while back Becca started her own blog so I got to know her a little more than a lot of the people who buy my work.
Recently, after some hard times, Becca has found love. Real love stories are some of my favorites, along with stories about people finding themselves and realizing their passions.
So when Becca emailed me and said if I happened to make a quilt for a man before Christmas she’d like to buy it for her boyfriend. I smiled at Becca’s happiness when I read it and knew I’d be making her a quilt.
I’ve been slowly working on it over the past week and today I sewed it together and started tacking it. I used some of the wild duck fabric I had (Becca told me her boyfriend likes wild birds and so I started with these pieces of fabric and worked off the colors in them). For the back I sewed the leftover scraps from the front together and added on to them. I like the back as much as the front, different as they are.
I should have it done by tomorrow. In plenty of time for Becca to give to her love for Christmas.
