    So glad to hear the woman came to her senses, and paid you a fair price. Congratulations.

    If it were me and she refused to pay the agreed upon price I would do one of two things.

    First I would tell her since you agreed on $125.00, that is what I expect you to pay for it. (Loosing the cost of the materials you had to buy is better than letting her have it for $60.00.) If she resists still, tell her I will give you ten dollars for your grandfather's material since there is no real worth to it and all of the scaps that are left over and I will keep the quilt and sell it for its real value of $300.00.

    or

    If she is getting snotty about "her" material then I would carefully dequilt it and give her material back to her along with a picture of the finished quilt. Tell her half the work is already done if she wants to find someone else to do the work for nothing. Just a suggestion.

    I am going to have the pattern ready for sale after the holidays. Will let you all know when it is ready and also will post it on my Etsy store. I promised you when it is ready and it ll be like the first part of January.

    Agree with this estimate as a starting point for making the quilt. It is gorgeous! If the clients grandfather was a tailor, then she knows this kind of work doesn't come cheap.

    Take the $60 as a down payment AND hold on to the quilt until she coughs up the rest. If she doesn't want to pay, well, take the label off and keep it for yourself. It's beautiful. If Grandpa was in the tailoring business, she knows that custom work does not come cheap. Shame on her!

    It is a gorgeous wall hanging. Your quilting really sets it off.I am so sorry this happened to you. Next time, put everything in writing before the customer leaves and have them sign it. I also agree w/momto5 about asking for a deposit as this would cover materials then she would only have to pay for the workmanship. Put it all in writing so everyone understands the cost, plus how long it will be before it is done. Good luck! By the way, she must not see the value in the quilt so just keep it. don't settle for less than what you both agreed.
    Jesus knows all my imperfections yet he still loves me. Amazing!
