    That is soooo funny! Understand the "fat chance" part!

    That hasn't happened to me yet. I always make my quilts with a specific person in mind for them. In fact I've given away every quilt I've ever made, I don't have a single one for myself yet. Usually, by the time I get one finished, I'm so tired of looking at it that I have no reservations about letting it go. I did have one "professionally" quilted and I was terribly terribly disappointed with the outcome. In fact I felt ripped off and the "quilter" was not friendly at all when I pointed out all of the places that should have been quilted, especially when she used the cotton batting I gave her and it stated that it needed to be quilted every 1"-2", not every one to two feet! I won't be doing that again. I bought myself an affordably priced long arm and do my own quilting now.

    I recommend keeping your first quilt and making another to give to the friend.

    I only quilt my own, that way I can say I made it all myself. I have given away most of the quilts I've made.
