    Thanks for the second boarding pass Jaba. I will need it as I am jumping off to "shop" the stash.

Water? oh crud gotta get up to get it, someone to hold your arm for extra balance even if you are getting up with a walker sure comes in handy til your really sure your good to go and heck dont even think of picking that napkin off the floor unless you have a grabber and can pick it up AND put it on something high enough to reach over to.. you have to let these things heal or you get a much longer lucky visit back at that hospital which well unless your food was different than mine when I was in.. the food isnt all that great. and quilting? hah, laugh at that.. hand quilted in bed there oh what fun. kept losing stuff couldnt sit up enough to find it, argh it was not nearly as much fun as whipping it out on the machine and the stitches were a whole lot closer on my brother than by hand that is for sure.

    Hello, hello, finally got home a couple hours ago. Still sore and moving slow, but at least I am out of there! Can;t wait to get to the next step.

    JENNIKY great choices!

    pbadder - Welcome. Good to see you ... and as to my choices, I like your posting #637 from today.

    Oooooo COOPAH bee-you-tea-full

    CAROLINE S I always shred my carrots for split pea soup, use one of those old fashioned 4-sided grater/slicer thingies -- I find a food process will work fine too if you have one, but hate cleaning that whole thing for a couple shredded carrots. Call me lazy, LOL.

    DRUE I will add my welcome to those who wrote to you earlier. All are welcome, to jump onboard any time.

    EVIE very very pretty fabrics

    QUILT ADDICT Welcome.

    Ok, so I think I answered eveyone's questions. If not, send me a PM and will be happy to answer.

    How do I get each installment in this mystery series? I thought I'd joined a few weeks ago but have no idea where to go to get more instructions.

    Elisabrat from the picture I do too! But the 1 is more of a turquiose green and when I'd sewed these together then it was really off. The lavender w/ the lavender & green floral is green, then with the other with it it was just to much turquiose and not enough of the green tint. It just clashed boom!!!to me and was driving me nutso! We'll see Saturday or ? maybe if these 2 aren't side by side it'll be okay. If not then no biggy, can always use another quilt around.
    Got a question for all of you....what would you do??? Had a lady call me from OKLA this morning. She'd seen some quilts that I had made for my granddaughter and wanted to know how much it would be to make 1. She wanted "tigger" fabric, I said for a child then? no for me, I love him! (1st mistake) How big I asked, regular bed she said. I asked if she meant it was a standard or queen, regular bed! (2nd mistake) I said I would be more comfortable if she could measure bed and let me know those sizes. So then I said there are several colors of background fabric, blue, pink and off white that I had seen, geezs I got tigger, I just want tigger!! I ended up telling her to measure her bed and if she would buy the main focus tigger fabric then I would go from there and give her a price. Needless to say I haven't heard back and not real sure if I want to, to many ifs for me I think? But would like your opinion, would you have done it differently or what should I have said. Really want your honest opinion here, I really NEED to know!!

    jaba, I think you asked important questions. It sounds like she may have gotten overwhelmed with the questions and not understood what goes into a quilt. If you decide it is something you would like to do, maybe call her back and talk with her to see how she is feeling about it. Maybe getting a price for a full size or double bed to help her see the price difference in bed sizes. I honestly don't think you did anything wrong and are valid in your second thoughts. Good luck and I hope you get it figured out

    Fabric options

    Thanks for letting be jump onto the train.

    Okay here are a couple of collections from my stash. Yes they are very different. Do they work? Which one do you think would come out better? I appreciate your suggestions. Then I will try getting to the HST done hopefully next week. I have some other projects I have to finish this weekend.

    WOW lisa they both work one I personally enjoy more but they both work. I say pick one and get sewing.

    Jaba ok colors are not reading true ok.. then you know it when you see it if you think its off its off. Sorry for picking the 'ugly one' lol. ok next issue you have. The lady obviously had a quick thought but not an IDEA so if she calls back go with your gut. Did she sound real? did she sound like SHE COULD afford you? your time has value if you end up doing it for free or next to nil becauseyou feel bad could you or would you have spent that time making something else otherwise? and enjoyed it more? dont give it away because she is clueless. She sounds design easy. She sounds like choice hard as all heck. no fun but your gut tells you right or wrong. go with it.

    Quilt Addict - personally, I like #2

    Jaba - I have the same problem with customers sometimes. They have a general idea, but don't know how to execute it, which is where we come in with our creative minds. I think you did well with offering to let her choose the focal fabric & you take it from there. Customers like that are pretty easy to please as far as design goes, but until you communicate further, you'll not know what she has visioned it to look like. I agree with Elisabrat, don't give your time away. You're taking time away from something else to do this quilt for the lady, charge for the inconvenience.

    Ditto, Ditto. I like both. Though the first pic of fabrics is my favorite. Have you considered making two?

    Also get a deposit large enough that she wont want to lose it. I learned the hard way when doing work for pay.Get some up front to cover fabric costs at least. Several I finished and the person changed her mind and had redecorated and I was left holding the bag so to speak.

    jolo I always do that 1/2 up front or I don't start and I always get that before I even think about buying fabric. With the price of fabric, a simple turning 20 design and you've got $100 in it with the backing, then thread, batting and time binding. People want to buy one but they want to pay 89.95 like your JCP or something. Nope got other things to do, plus I'd have to pay someone more than that to come and dust and vacuum my house. Well, that might be worth it if they'd clean the bathrooms too!!

    Waiting for the next clue and hoping some of these squares are going to work. They're just going to have to, maybe I'll end up with a scrappy who dun it one.

    Woo hoo quilt addict - I vote for the second one but I would used that great squiggly print for one of he A B C or D fabrics. It's too pretty not to see a lot of the print - like in the HST. But the first collection is pretty too - make both if you cannot decide!

    Judy, glad you are back and feeling better.

    Thanks everyone for your help with the fabric. I think I will use the brights in the second photo and will see about changing the squigly to one of the A-D fabrics. I will save the civil war fabrics for another trip, bigger quilt. Yeah, been saving them for awhile now.

    I have duty this weekend but will try to contribute to the food car next week. I want to try that pumkin butter in the crock pot mentioned earlier, but that will have to wait 'til next weekend so i can put up the extra so everyone can take a jar home with them. The avacados are not ripe yet either, but maybe by the end of the trip!

    Help - I'm trying to post a picture of my fabrics, which I have never done. When I try to put the picture on here, it doesn't seem to be there. Do you actually see the picture before you send the reply? I know I click on the tree icon and then find my pic, but as I said, the picture doesn't seem to be here. Thanks for any help you can give me!

    Yes, the picture should show before you hit the post reply button. Sometimes it takes awhile for the picture to load. I always go to the "go advanced" button when adding a picture. Other than that...I dunno. Good luck and hope you get your picture posted.
