Martinique Money-Maker

It has been one full week of not working a teaching job, so I guess it’s official.  I, Nacho Mama,  work at home.  For myself.  As a quilter.  I still can’t believe how lucky I am.  I’m also productive now that my son is back in school.  This month, I’ve had two big commissions that I’ve needed to finish and get in the mail, and as of today, they are done and in the mail!

The first one is for family friend Cindy who commissions a quilt each year and then donates it for an auction raising scholarship money for Texas Nurse Practitioners  scholarship fund.  Last year, my mom made Aggie Fever for it, and I quilted it.  This year, Mom pieced our quilt, and I quilted it.  I see a trend, don’t you?

When I look back at those quilting pics from a year ago, I can see a huge difference in how far I’ve come with my longarm quilting.

Let’s just hope this quilt can make some money for scholarships!

(For inquiring minds– fabric is Martinique by 3 Sisters for Moda)

    Hey Nacho Mama, Lady of Leisure (I know you’re probably working harder than ever)! I sure do miss seeing you and your creations everyday. Hope all is well. I’m doing good at my new school. Finally figuring things out!
