Remember I labored over this Bonnie Hunter design? It was her leader/ender project from a few years ago? I made it as a main project and finished it earlier this year?
I changed the fabrics, made it very bright and dropped it off at the LAQ's shop recently... This quilter is new to me...He's very near my house and he quilted one other thing for me (the basket quilt along) so I figured I've return.
Well, when I walked in, I hadn't remember which quilt I'd dropped off (really.. I'm not kidding!). As he was unfolding it, he asked if it was destined for a particular person? Did I have a plan for where to put it? I was confused... thinking maybe the quilting wouldn't go with the intended recipient??
When I told him I didn't, he started to say things about how attached he became to the quilt; how much he just loved it... finally I asked him if he wanted to buy it...
YUP, he did. So I went home without my quilt!! (and a wad of cash in my wallet!). And immediately proceeded to start another one!! Notice the dancing girls, writings, dogs and ducks!!
It was an easy pattern to make and so much fun so I figured I didn't mind selling him the quilt, since he loved it so much.
Never heard of such a thing. He also said he'd never bought a quilt from anyone before...
What a surprise!!
