I have a red work that I want quilted.It is a panel I bought and spent 7 years doing the embroidery. I did the stem stitch using pearl cotton.
It was my just wait project. Doc. app.,oil changes,etc.
Yesterday I took it to a church to see about having it quilted.
I looked at what they are working on. The stitches are not as perfect as I thought they should be. Not as uniform is size as I thought hand quilting should be. They have done many many quilts through the years. Am I being to fussy?
Since the picture I added another 6 inch border same as the 2 inch inside border. It is backed and pinned and ready to hand quilt in a hoop. I would have to take it apart for them to put it on their frame. I guess I need to know if I should attempt the hand quilting myself? I have never done it but think I can do as good a stitch as they. Should I take another quilt top that has not as much work in it for them to do first to see if I wold be satisfied?
I would not want to offend them and they have seen the red work quilt and could start in Feb.judith ann
