In late 2012, a friend commissioned me to do a quilt for his wife's birthday. The only requirement it had was to be Hello Kitty fabric. I asked for her favorite colors and went with that. I showed him some designs and he pretty much let me pick what I wanted to do. After picking the blocks I wanted to do, looking at fabric and sending him pictures of it, I worked up a quote. This was my first commissioned quilt job and I wanted everything to be perfect. I kept him updated on the quilt. He did not need it until June, so I had some time to work on it.
He only needed it to be a lap quilt, so I made it about 50 x 60. He was so excited when I gave it to him, and knew his wife would really love it. He has mentioned to me that his wife really likes it. I love the joy that comes from making a quilt for somebody and knowing that they really love it.
