finally are months of work my latest quilt commission was finished in time for christmas which was just as well as it was the clients christmas present to herself. We had arranged to post it using royal mails special next day delivery on a day when she would be in to sign for it. unfortunately we had all that snow and the post office weren't guaranteeing any deliveries. i did have slight palpitations for a while that it wouldn't arrive in time or worse still that it would get lost!! it was insured but there is no way of replacing all the childrens clothes that it is made from.
i am happy to say that it did arrive the next day, i don't care what others say but i think we have an amazing postal system in this country. all my parcels arrived with the customers in time for christmas although some took a while to get there.
anyway this is the front of the finished quilt made entirely from my clients three childrens clothes, even the binding was her daughters dresses-she had a few from the same range. below is the reverse of the quilt which is made from embroideries of the childrens drawings as well as handprints and name and birth details.
