Table Topper to Wales

A few years ago we had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful lady named Dilys and her great-nephew Dean who stayed at our B&B.  They were visiting from Wales and stayed with us for a week as they explored our region and up island a bit. They've just returned to the west coast for another visit but won't be coming to the island this time.

Dilys purchased one of my quilts (shown below) to take home with her on her first visit to us.  I was so blessed.

We became facebook friends and have stayed in touch.  That's one of the many blessings of having a B&B.  You make new acquaintances and sometimes they become friends.

I received a facebook message from Dilys a few months back asking if she could commission me to make her a quilt for a table.  Long story short, I said 'yes' and set out working on a design that would fit her dimensions and her colour scheme.  This is the result:

I couriered the finished quilt to her friends on the mainland.  She received it today and loves it.  It makes me so very happy to have made something that pleases her.  She flies home to Wales on the 22nd so this will fit nicely in her suitcase.

I will be writing up a pattern for this one so watch for it here:

The weekend is here so it's time to finish up something on my design wall that needs attention.  Hope you're all working on something fun too.

In stitches,
