    Feathered the border on this one and nailed it!!! I'm really happy with the way it turned out. It did everythng freehand. Honest opinions needed. Do you think I'm ready to start quilting for others?

    Great Job! Beautiful Quilt and the quilting on the front and back of your quilt is really nice! I wish I didn't live so far away, I would hire you to teach me.

    Wonderful!! You are really ready to quilt for $$. I wish I had some $$. Like bjnicholson I'd have to finish a quilt first. Mine is still in the sandwich stage.

    Love your ideas, you have an empty space in the star that is a bit to empty. The biggest thing about quilting a quilt is to keep the denseness (is that a word?) even.
    You could echo the star inside, that way it would be the same density.

    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.
