    Another Quilt Done

    One of the ladies from my church told me Sunday that one of her friends wanted to bring a quilt top and see about getting me to quilt it. It was an improved nine patch. She selected the pattern she wanted me to do it in and opted for the fluffy look with a poly batting. Not an easy undertaking on the long arm. I think it turned out pretty good. I only had one goof up. One row was a little closer than it should have been. Don't know how that happened unless I accidently moved the laser. I warned her up front that I was just learning. And, I am only charging her $50.00. Would you say that was a fair price? I used a shade of orange thread to compliment the rust colored fabric and to show up on the back. What do you think?

    I think you did a fantastic job quilting this quilt. The quilt pattern is really interesting and I think the quilter did a wonderful job on the top! It reminds me of vintage quilt tops.

    ​I think she is very lucky to get it quilted for $50. You did an excellent job!

    I agree that both you and person that pieced it did a wonderful job. I have no idea what the going rate for quilting is, but that seems very reasonable. Donna

    You are showing progress at every post! Your thread choice was perfect. Yes $50.00 was a very fair price( not sure of the size) . I would have been doing the happy dance to have quilting done for that price.

    Love your quilting pattern, great job. My grandmother made a improved 9 patch many years ago, I'm in my 60's & she died when I was 20.

    It's beautiful! You were kind to work with the fluffy batting! My long-arm quilter won't use it because it doesn't play well with her long arm machine. Someday I want a fluffy quilt though! You did a fabulous job!!

    i love that quilt pattern but not so thrilled with the rust. can you ask her for that pattern for me? that would be a cute one to piece one for me one for you and help with the stash elimination stuff here! as far as your quilting goes, I AM SO PROUD OF YOU! you are doing fantastic! i like the way the leaves look on the backside. you are going to be a pro in no time and with every one you get better and better! i think this investment will pay off for you (im sure a bus ticket would pay off for ME!) trying to talk the hubband into coming to arkansas from idaho is like trying to tell a child that vegetables taste good!

    I think your quilting looks great. You must be learning quickly. I have paid about $80 for the last two lap-sized quilts that I had done, so I think your rate is very fair, especially if the quilt is larger than lap-sized.

    Oh my! You did a fantastic job on it. Fifty dollars was a give-away price for this quilting.

    puffy poly, hard to work with. You have my admiration for doing it. Sometimes the laser light does get hit.

    I think the lady got a big time bargain. The quilting looks great and you need to consider raising your prices.
