I sold my first art quilt today. Fall Leaves was purchased by a husband as a Mother's Day gift for his wife. He approached me last year and I had turned him down, and a year later I felt I was ready to sell. At the time when I was originally asked, all I could think about was all the time I had sat beading the individual oak leaves. They don't show up on the picture but there are 13 leaves surrounding the 3 big ones.
During the previous year, I read that one famous quilter says that she enjoys the quilt while making it, and then after it is done, just lets it go.
And in theory I want to sell my work, I just had no idea how hard it would be. Hopefully the next time I have a buyer, I won't take a year to decide!
