    Sounds fair. You should get a deposit if you are purchasing the material. My church quilt group got stung when we had a lady order a quilt. The material was bought in the colours she wanted ,then when it was finished being quilted she said that she didn't want it. We did end up selling it.

Offer to teach them (as a group) how to make a basic quilt. Give them two dates when you would be available, and if they are really interested, they will figure out how to do it. You may get some quilting buddies out of the deal. If there are steps that they don't feel up to (quilting or binding) you could offer to do those for an hourly rate that you specify in advance-- say $10/hour.


    I like this idea the most!

    I am working on a 4 generation family photo quilt for a lady that lives over 100 miles from me. She saw one I done for someone else & called me about it. I didn't give her a specific dollar amount, but tried to do my best of approximate the cost when she ordered it. I just told her that it would be twice the amount I spent on all supplies & would do my best to get the best prices for the supplies. Anyway, when she sent me the photos for the quilt, she also sent me over half of what I thought it would cost for a deposit. Also told her it would also depend on how many photos she wanted on it. She didn't care what it would cost & sent 45 photos.

    I would be inclined to ask for a deposit on each quilt as well = it keeps them honest and interested and you are not stuck with 3-5 quilts to get rid of.

    Quilting is my hobby. I love it. If it becomes a "job", would I love it as much?
