Commission Quilting

A few months ago I agreed to barter for quilting services: I would quilt an acquaintance’s quilt top, and she would pay me in yarn and fabric.  Life intervened, and she was very patient as I proceeded to have zero free time around the holidays.

But now it’s done!  Here’s the front, post-washing:

I stitched in the ditch to emphasize the swirly quilting:

The back (pre-washing, and quite wrinkly) shows the outline of some of the curves slightly better:

If you look carefully on the right-hand side you can see a sleeve for a dowel, so the quilt can be hung from a wall.  I’d ordinarily do corners, but this was so wide that I was afraid it would sag in the middle.

I’m delighted to have this done and in the mail back to its owner – and can’t wait to get a box of yarn and fabric in exchange.  Now if only the postman would show up to pick it up the way the USPS says they already have!
