A Tale of Two Princess Quilts
Woot woot! Here is a little tale about two different princess quilts. It only took us six days to get the second princess quilt sewn, quilted and bound. The seventh day was used for washing, drying and bundling them up for mailing. I didn’t think we could possibly get it finished that quickly . . . and that was even running completely out of thread one day. Here is a shot of the finished quilt:
The abbreviated back story in case you are new here is that we completed and listed a princess quilt on Etsy. I noticed it had some interested in our shop. That is really nice! Although I truly couldn’t have been more surprised than when we received an email asking if we would make another princess quilt? Our customer has twin granddaughters and needed the quilts in exactly two weeks. Gulp. Sure, we can meet that deadline. So we began in the beginning by sewing the blocks together. Next came the layering and embroidery of the cute hearts:
The embroidery hearts were finished on Tuesday, and then the other quilting commenced. That was going along great until the sixth day when we had a thread emergency. (FYI – it’s not a good time to just pop in to Joann’s for thread a few days before Halloween – they are VERY busy!) Finally, the hand sewn binding was completed by Sue. Here they are all neatly folded and ready to be wrapped and boxed for mailing:
Tale as Old as Time:
You can see the quilts are similar yet each is distinctive. The twins will be able to easily determine which quilt belongs to them. First of all, the borders are different on the front, and secondly, the backing fabrics are different. I think we need to ‘whip’ up another princess quilt for the Etsy shop since they are so popular, don’t you think?
