A quilty commision

Hello, long time no see :)
A month or so ago I was approached by a lovely lady who wanted a purple quilt with woodland animals, I jumped at the chance...purple with woodland animals! I couldn't wait :)
Well the quilt is in it's new home and it's new owner loves it, which was a huge relief, so I feel I'm safe to post some pictures.






I would have happily kept this quilt, my favourite animals and colours. I also got a bit brave with the free motion quilting and it is quilted all over with flowers the result is very beautiful. 
I enjoyed making it immensely apart from the worrying as to weather she would like it or not, to pay quite a bit of money for something you have only seen pictures of is a big leap of faith I think.
Any way all turned out well and it kept me out of mischief in the holidays.
Now back to the reality of term time...it's been a fantastic summer holiday, best one yet, I hope you've all had a fantastic summer too. 
September is a wonderful month, I intend to enjoy it before I snuggle up in readiness for winter...I must post a September walk, things have changed a lot since the last one, see you soon
