On The Line Again

I'm working on a new "on the line" quilt for a friend's laundry room. She wanted it 36 x 36 which is way bigger than I usually make these quilts. I had to change my method a bit to work in such a large scale.
It's so much fun to customize it for their activities and family. They've got these cats...
The husband is a fly fisherman...aren't these the cutest waders and I adore that union suit.
I'm still playing with the layout, but I can't wait to start the applique and add details.

Finished the largest commission piece, a 60 x 90 spiderweb quilt. Off to deliver that and hopefully some sewing time tonight.

What a cute quilt-in-progress and wonderful idea!
Having somthing nice in the laundry room might motivate my family to keep it tidy; maybe it's worth a try.

beth said...

Needled Mom said...

All of the clothes are so cute. The wadders are simply adorable. How about a fishing vest????

Patty said...

I have wanted to make a wall hanging of clothes on a clothes line but just never seem to get around to it.

What do you charge for a commission work? I find it so hard to come up with a price on many of my items.

Vicki said...

I've just gone through some older posts and stumbled upon the one about Fudge. How sad, but you did the right thing. I've had to put three to sleep in the last two years.

Lucky Bruno...thanks for saving him.

bekhy said...

ouch...a commission spiderweb quilt...hope you charged a lot for that :) that is a labor of love for sure; can we see pictures? that laundry room quilt is going to be so cute!

MightyMom said...

oh darn...was that spiderweb the selvage one?? cuz I got a big old selvage waiting to go in the mail........


hmmm, you've given me an idea for another quilt. I could do a "on the line" quilt...and make little replicas of the things that I've made for the kids...out of the scraps from them....you know a little dress from the same material as sister's dress...or little shorts from the boys' ball shorts?

oooo I'll have to add that tothe UFO list.

Lynn said...

Reading through the comments - I've think you've inspired us yet again. And hey - that polka dotted union suit is the cutest thing!

jen said...

That is going to be really cute, but more pressing...Who exactly puts a quilt in their laundry room? It must be quite the laundry room for sure, lol!

Team NE said...

henny said...

Lovely clothes, Jacquie!
Could you tell me please or maybe make a tutorial of the process in making your applique? I had ever did applique once, but the sewing is not so neat as I wish. So please, please, please.... :)
