    They are both beautiful but the second one is amazing. You should be very proud of both. I remember your post about her changing her mind from earth tone colors.

    Wow, they look great. A comment on the 'twice the cost of the materials'. I always use the original retail price in this calculation, not what I paid! remember to include thread.

    Well, she took the second one - and was thrilled with it. She loved them both, but when I flipped to show the backing she was sold on the brighter one - said it looked like her daughter. So ... done! Now back to my own projects!

    Thanks for the "Twice the price of retail" idea. I'm just not comfortable yet charging what I think they are "worth". These easy, easy patterns go together so quickly and my FMQ is so basic. But ... as I get better and more confident - I'll hike that price up to a more reasonable level.
    So many quilts, so little time.

    I'm so thankful you shared all of this with the board. You gave me the inspiration and thought of making my son a special quilt if/when he's deployed once again. I never thought of sending him a quilt on his first tour....was too concerned about him getting it...I have the quilt already made and ready, just in case...

    I like the second the best. Could it be the first is out of focus?

    They are both beautiful quilts. I am sure she will enjoy them. I can understand what you are saying about commission work.

    First, I like the second one. Don't know why as both are beautiful. Second, I love the quilt you did for the soldier.
