I got my first request for a commissioned quilt! My client saw my Jelly bean quilt and wants one just like it in blues, greens and purples. But bigger! She has a large space in her entryway that she wants to fill with one of my quilts.

I worked up some options for her in EQ7.

Option 1


Option 2


Option 3


She chose option 1. I’m thrilled to start working on this custom quilt. In the next few weeks, I’ll share the process with you. Stay tuned!

Congrats Nicole! This quilt will be absolutely stunning! I'm curious about how you decide what to charge customers … I battle with that myself!

Congratulations – wow – it is quite something. I also would've chosen design number 1.

Nicole, congratulations on receiving your first commission to make a custom quilt. Awesome! I am sure it will be as beautiful and the original one you made.

By the way, I'm curious to know how you went about uploading the 3 options from EQ7. I attempted to the the same – add my Sunrise Social design to my blog but had to condense it in order for it to display. Any tips you would be willing to share would be most helpful. Please email me. The design is in my entry "To Quilt or Not to Quilt". Thank you in advance.
