A Finish! Wonky Japanese Squares


It's finally done! The commission quilt for Amber which is a copy of this one where I used Heather Ross fabrics. On this one Amber chose a bunch of Japanese and organic fabrics. I like how it turned out! It's unisex, as her sister doesn't know the sex of the baby yet. Do you likee? Click any photo to see it large!


I just quilted around all the squares inside and outside.


And put little surprise faces in the cornerstones.


Oh! Here's the back!





Edited April 2010: Here is a photo of the recipient, John William, with his new quilt!
Enjoy!

there are no emoticons to express how much i love this quilt. it's something like this:

but basically: wendy, you are amazing.

XOXO S.
