Buried Treasure! In so many ways…..

Hey Mates, come follow the map for buried treasure!

Where to start?! My daughter told me I had to start this blog, it would help my business. I listened, but kinda did it kicking and screaming! Who me, wright!??!!! Well she was right and this customer is proof….

Leona came in for a consult. I asked her how she found me and her answer was “I did my research and in the process found your blog and liked what I saw and read…” Wow! A little buried treasure….

Leona brought this quilt in and asked me to quilt a treasure map on it! What a great idea! Leona had also done a lot of homework for me, she came with a bag full of images to show what she had in mind.

Where to start?! I layer all the ideas out on the table behind me for quick access…

And I bit the bullet and started quilting! IT WAS SO FUN! I have archived prettier quilting than this one, but no other quilt was as fun as this one! It started off with Leona’s ideas, but the further I got, the more ideas I got, the more creative I got and the more fun I had!

I took a lot of pictures, most will need no explanation so here goes….
