    I like it! Maybe you should ask for a deposit in the future? At least you wouldn't be out 100% of your money that way...

    Maybe it would have been a good idea to draw out the design first and show her, and let her help with the fabric selection. And then, get a NONREFUNDABLE deposit for the table runner.

    I learned a hard lesson while sewing for the public. Didn't get many bad checks but I did have several people change their mind and choose not to take the item. The worst one was a wedding dress that had quite a bit of beadwork on it. Full skirt with lace overlay....she eloped and failed to tell me! I did donate the dress to a charity for girls that couldn't afford formal or wedding gowns. Lesson learned? Well maybe!
    Happy Quilting

    I've always found that if you let go of things that don't serve you well, no matter how scary...that something MUCH better will find it's way in! Good luck on releasing the drains on your very nice work.

    Very pretty and I kow how you feel about customers changing their minds after they ask for a "specific" quilted item, but keep it and enjoy it for yourself. Nice pattern and choice of fabrics.
