    ooh what a great quilt!!! I love the colours!

    Mitered binding corners are not hard to do at all once you get the hang of it and they give a great finished look!

    I live in rural southern utah. I'm an RN at the hospital and they have a gift shop there. I can put things in the gift shop for $2 commission, and the rest is mine. I can choose my own prices. I have been given lots of flannel scraps and really watch my prices on backings, etc. I buy batting in bulk rolls (Oklee quilting supply in MN). So you can see my expenses are pretty low. I sell as many as I put there. They have lots of ladies that make two pieces of fabric with yarn ties, and they sell for $30. So put my price at $45 and they never last long! My baby quilts are usually approx 40-42 X 52-54". I know that I could get more $$ in a larger market, but actually I make them because I enjoy it. I want to use up all the flannel first, before making twin size. BUT, co workers and friends keep giving me more scraps! It's a great way to try out a pattern that I like. After a crib quilt I can see if I like it enough to make one larger or not. Sara

    Chele,
    Your quilt does remind one of Charlie Brown doesn't it? I love it. Another Chele creation that I am going to have to copy! Slow down girl. I can't keep up with you! :lol:

    Thank you so much for your imput. I have been doing a local Strawberry Festival for the past 2 years and sell a lot of new claw-machine toys a very low prices. (hubby is an addict and we get some really nice, big toys) I've been taking miscellanious things also. I don't make too much over the table price but it weeds out my stock of toys! :lol: And the music and food are terrific. I have been thinking of taking some books that I've read this year also. I just thought that I might take some quilts with me and if I sell them OK if not thats OK too. :D

    Coconuts, I hope you wanted my pattern! This thread kind of took a different turn! Anyway, congrats on your twins!

    I got the pattern from the wonderful site below. They also have a new book out "Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts." It's awesome!

    Thank you, Chele. I love the site, many things I will want to do. Identical twin grandaughters are going home today from the Mayo Clinic St Mary's Hospital. Were three weeks, preemies, but doing wonderful. I will post a picture of my quilt when I get it done. Thanks again.

    Chele:
    I've never had any interest in a zig zag quilt until I saw yours then we're seeing all the different zig zags on this thread so now I think I'll re-think my original non-interest. Your quilts are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

    :?: Hi! I have a question for you - But first, I love your quilt, the colors, and the pattern. I am really interested in your backing material as I have been looking for the blue/green color combination to go with some I have in my stash for a quilt. Do you know where I could find that material?
    Thanks for your help, and keep up the good work!!

    Alice, that fabric is by Makower UK in England. I believe the design is called 3200 Metropolis, Abstract. I have no idea where I bought it! It was recently though! I hope that helps.

    Thanks, Chele, for the info. I will see if I can find it on-line or in the local fabric shop. Our shops are few and far between on the plains of Kansas!!

    Thanks again!

    Very, Very nice. I'm glad you learned to do angles. I also do my angle at the end where you join the beginning and the ending binding. Every time though I have to get out the quilting book and following the instructions, otherwise I'll draw that pencil mark going the wrong way. I can't believe I can't remember that!!

    The best to you.
