Last October, asked by my city's Chamber of Commerce if I would accept a commission to make an art quilt to hang in the lobby of the new Jetport, I paused about 3 seconds.  My brain was shouting, "WHAT! are you crazy to accept a commission?"  My mouth never listens to my brain, and it said that I would be delighted.  Of course the panic quickly dissolved as I was told that I would have free rein on the design. The new Jetport terminal is a rustic, craftsman style building, so I thought it best to create something to fit with that theme.  I listened to suggestions and thoughts from the committee.  They liked the idea of a autumn trees with a sunset.  So I am off in a tizzy to have it completed by the first of December .

November progress with deadline looming

          Thankfully, there was a bit a construction delay on the Jetport and I was able to get it completed in time for today's grand opening


The quilt was delivered and hung on the stone fireplace on Tuesday.  I was thrilled to see another of my art quilts hanging in a commercial location.  

What an honor.  

Now back to a more relaxed schedule. 

Ms. Iris is waiting to be quilted.
