    About quilting for others, my business plan was to do enough of my own quilts, showing them to guilds and the quilt shops. Taking classes and when show and tell was available I could show my work. Have some nice cards made up, and be sure to make your business legal, it doesn't take much to get a tax id, and then you don't have any "guilt" for doing it under the table.
    Be sure to have insurance, you never want anything to happen without insurance.
    I totally agree about the star needing something more. I was more focused on the feathers and after I took it off the frame immediately noticed that I should have done more there. Thanks for the critique...I really do appreciate it.

    I only can say this, because today I started to take a quilt off, and saw an area that needed more, even though I would have charged more for that treatment, I did it at no charge. I knew it needed that feather, and I didn't discuss that with him, so no charge.
    One thing I say to myself, this quilt has my signature, what would I like it to say.
    You are doing a great job, doodle doodle doodle.
    Before I was computerized (5yrs) I quilted free hand. People will say, don't use a pantograph, but how else do you learn to move that machine head than to trace a pattern over and over again. Look at my website, Pin Cushion page, many of these are freehand.
    Talent is knowing what a quilt calls for, keep looking at quilts and the quilting. And most of all Enjoy!

    Very nice work. I would let you do mine if I didn't do my quilting myself....others, however....I can't say for them. Some are very picky, and others are not.
