Well, today I made some blocks for the commissioned quilt - I have quite a few more to make, but you can get a fair idea from this photo - they are all the same block, but in different colourways - once I have more of them made, I'll lay them out properly to give an idea of the overall design. (The group of four is only laid out, not sewn together yet, so any lost points, etc are really not as bad as they might look...
I decided on this block partly because I like it, partly because it's not too complicated and therefore won't take too long - although I'm charging an hourly rate, I also know her general budget, and partly because of the name of the block, which makes a nice inside joke. It's called (one of its names, anyway - it probably has half a dozen, as do most traditional quilt blocks) Contrary Wife. As Angela has commissioned the quilt as a birthday present for her future DIL, I couldn't resist.
