I haven't even completed my first top yet, but I've been buying fabric here and there, collecting for my next two quilts... I don't even want to know how much I've already spent on fabric, charms, batting, thread, and quilting tools (not to mention sewing machine repair!) But that isn't even the killer for me - what I'm really terrified of is the quilting cost. I haven't called around yet here, but I know it isn't cheap. Is this really a hobby I should pursue? (I have no patience for hand quilting, and tying I'd only like for a certain look - not as a rule) How do you do it when you live on relatively low income?
