Windward Custom Quilting - is now accepting Quilts!

I'm in business.  Here is my first quilt with the WCQ distinction

This is a beautiful Double Wedding Ring from my friend Missy.  She and I met at a retreat several years ago.  I had to cut back on computer use when we built this house - but now with more time I've rejoined her group and we have gotten back in touch.  She contacted me a couple of weeks ago regarding doing a few quilts for her.  We emailed and I sort of got an idea of what she wanted.  She kept saying - "do what you think looks nice"  BUT I really wanted HER to think it looked nice...So this morning I sent her a couple of close up
This afternoon she sent me a note saying it was JUST want she wanted!  I'm so happy - now to box her baby back up and mail it to her.  I'm so happy that I did please her!

Now on to Cat's.  Cathie gave me 2 of her tops at our retreat.  I knew I had to do Missy's first...but now I get to PLAY...I emailed Cat some sketches of 4 designs I thought would work - She showed them to the girls in her office and they all picked this design
I'll be able to do this one freehand - it should be so much fun - I'm so anxious to start this one.  BUT (drats) picnic on Sunday I'll be making salad & a cake tomorrow. 

Happy 4th of July to all of you - Be SAFE!

I can't wait to see your magic on Cat's quilt! The DWR looks awesome, BTW.
