Custom Quilt Top Complete!

Mermaids, take two
I finished a custom order quilt top today!  The client saw the pink version I made a while back
Mendocino Mermaid Quilt complete!
She wanted one with the aqua/brown colors of Mendocino and wanted it a bit larger (to fit a full-size bed). I have to admit it was a little hard to cut into my stash of aqua Mendocino.  I know I'll never see more of it!
Mermaids, take two
I used Essex linen/cotton blend in Natural for my sashing this time because the client wanted to stay away from white.  I love the beachy feel of this!  I may suck it up and drive back down to the beach for a final photoshoot when this is done!

Now I have the unexciting task of piecing a back together.  This may be my least favorite part of quilting!  I'd rather iron than piece a backing!

Really nice Kelly! I must say it would have been hard for me to cut into all the mendicino too :-)
