    You go girl. Here's hoping you achieve your goal by year end!
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    You'd only have to make a couple queens and sell them for a minimum of $500 each and have your goal reached.

    Best of luck to you. I am just finishing some of mine to sell over the summer at a local shop. I hope I sell at least a few. I will be thinking of you and sending good wishes.

    Contact your local interior decorator. Show an example of your best work and give her a business card, price list and pictures of examples. Give her your very best turn around times, prices for pillow shams , throw pillows, etc. nursery room sets, etc. You probably could have the $1000 with one good customer, at least 2 depending on what they order. Even if they call it a comforter, it is a quilted sandwich, right?

    You could also consider selling just the tops, might help speed up things. Good luck, will be watching your progress
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye

    Love my Crown Jewel. They have an awesome 4 day class in St. Louis taught by Kay Capps Cross. Don't know where you live.
    Wish you luck on selling quilts!
