I am thankful to receive a king size quilt order with my asking price. The customer wanted this for her hubby’s birthday but the lead time was too short. So, I suggested that we move it to Christmas.
She chose the palette combining both hers and hubby’s favourite colors.
A commonly heard phrase: green with envy. How did it came about? From Wikipedia: The expression “green-eyed monster” (me: the monster referring to envy or jealousy) was first used by William Shakespeare in Othello: “it is the green-eyed monster which doth mock the meat it feeds on.” Shakespeare also used it in the Merchant of Venice, speaking of “green-eyed jealousy.”
To add to that, did you know that there are many other common expressions that was coined by Shakespeare. Among others: all’s well that ends well, break the ice, for goodness sake, knock knock who’s there, laughing stock. You can see a more comprehensive list here http://www.pathguy.com/shakeswo.htm.
The basting was done in the living room. I had to move some furnitures to make way for the quilt. This is one of three work-in-progress quilts done within a month which needed to move the furniture.
The photoshoot was done at the bridge heading into Presinct 2 Putrajaya. The mosque as the background is the Putra Mosque.
What happened when I tried my best to make sure the quilt won’t fly away.
And finally the quilt on the steps leading up to the Ministry of Finance, Presinct 2 Putrajaya.
