Fast forward to 2014. My mom came to visit and decided she really liked this quilt so it went home with her. At this point I had completely forgotten that this quilt was still listed for sale on Etsy. You see where this is going?
Yep. A couple of months after the quilt went to live at my mom's house, the quilt listing on Etsy sold. I went to find the quilt to mail it off to it's new lovely owner and I COULD. NOT. FIND. IT. My mom happened to be visiting again at the time and gently reminded me that she had taken that quilt with her last time. Doh.
I got in touch with the customer and we worked out a solution - one in which I happily got the chance to make this Seaside Squares quilt again. As I was making it I realized two things:
#1: I'm SO glad that I take detailed notes as I'm making each quilt.
#2: I've never re-made the EXACT quilt before. Ever.
Both finished quilts measure about 64" x 64". Both are now happily living in their new homes. And I have now double and tripple checked to make sure all of the quilts listed in my Etsy shop are actually here and ready to be shipped!
