    to PM pvquilter click her name <--- over there it'll bring up a new screen then find and click the PM button type in your message in the box and hit submit :)

    and to check "your" PM's at the top of the page look for "Private Messages" and when there's a # next to it you have a new message click it and it'll take you to your mail box

    I'm sure you are devastated. After all of the hours
    that you spent to make a beautiful quilt...... honestly, I would fly back to the quilter and tell her that I gave the quilt to her in good faith and that I
    would like it re-done. It really doesn't matter that she is very nice, $100.00 is a lot of money to throw in the garbage. According to the
    quilters that have already answered you here on the forum you were
    not to blame - and she did blame you - a nice person doesn't do that.
    If she has nerve enough to say that it's your fault - you certainly don't
    need nerve to ask her to do it over - at no further charge to you. Or, if she doesn't want to do it over you should get your money back.

    I think you will kick yourself if you just let this go.

    I do agree that if the quilter did see she had a problem with the back you should have been notified. Did she bother to tell you WHAT you did wrong with the back?

    If you left selveges on the fabric would cause a problem. Did you have to piece the back? The fabric might have been off grain before you pieced it. There are tons of things that can cause a longarmer absolute fits.

    If your longarmer is to busy to check for problems before quilting, then you need to consider using someone else.

    The above is just my opinion. I am a longarmer, and if you would like please send me an email to crashnquilt@hotmail.com and I'll be glad to give you a quote for quilting.

    Let's not forget, who is working for whom! I would be so in there, she can at least refund you 50%. That way it would be fair. I would think that she would be willing to work with you to keep a happy customer!

    I am shocked at this!!!
    Upon receiving the quilt, she should have inspected it and told you of any problems that may arise from the top piecing to the backing that you have chosen for your quilt and included the batting to get the desired look you were going for with your quilt.
    This person should have contacted you if there were any questions or doubts on anything...
    That saves her 'butt'
    If you said go ahead, then it is on you...
    I would want at least half my money back...I would tell her what I would have expected and stated it that it is why I want my money back...
    Good luck and I am sure you will find some great longarmers on this board. I did!!!

    Things like that are what keeps me scared of sending quilts out. There are some hugely talented longarmers on the board here, but if someone messed up my quilt or lost it, I'd be heartsick.

    I would take it back. The one I sent out befor it got lost. I had a hard time squaring it up and she did it for nothing. But she called me and told me she was going to do it for me.
