If I have time left she wants me to make a 8ft table runner for the main table.
    that is a lot of work and for that kind of money I would not use premade bias tape on them..too many seams and they are not always color fast...I would make my own to make sure it matches!

    if she really understood what goes into 4 custom quilts she would have this to you a year ago...good luck on the time frame.

    and I would send them out for the quilting!

    Wow, I would like to see the fabric, do you have any pictures? What pattern, all the same or all different. The price sounds great! I agree, start now!

    I'm sure you'll be happy to do it for her ... of course I hope the pattern isn't outlandishly difficult. They aren't going to be all king size are they?

    Be sure to post photos as you progress along please.

    Awesome! I would have to make myself intermediate deadlines to make sure they all got done on time and with the same amount of care.

    hey, thats great. Last year I sold two quilts. one queen size for $550. and a large baby quilt for $150. I felt lucky. I have to get the one I'm working done befor I can make another one to sell. I have some material for two baby quilts. It depends on how they turn out. Not sure of the design yet.

    I'm sure glad you have lots of time to get them done. Of course, Knowing me, I'd wait till Thanksgiving to get really serious! Have fun with it. I know they will be beautiful.

    It sounds like a fair deal to me -do lots of layer cutting and chain piecing and you'll have them done in no time!

    Sounds like you need to have an old fashion quilting Bee.
