  1. Back with a finished quilt...finally. I sure didn't quote high enough for this one. Every one is a learning experience when you're new at this. Client wanted all crosshatching. So that's what I did. I really wanted some feathers, etc. like you all suggested but she was pretty firm. In the middle of doing this my machine was down for a week while getting parts. I learned how to time her too! It took me hours and hours of ruler work, stopping and starting and burying threads at all the appliqués. Overall I think it looks good. She will pick up this week and I'm hoping she loves it. Lesson learned: charge more if I do crosshatching and I will not do another whole quilt this way for a client again!! Omni thread top and bottom. And again my photos are upside down....why??? Hi everyone. I have this quilt to work on. About 72 x 100. They client was asked by her aunt to finish a quilt for her. When she got it there was only one block done, hand appliquéd. So she and her friends each did a part of it - machine appliquéd. She's thinking Baptist Fans or Cross Hatching. I'm thinking it deserves some feathers somewhere. Her budget is light custom but I think she's open to other suggestions. Cross hatching the whole thing would be very time consuming and I don't think it will do it justice. Baptist Fans - I have boards and would have to quilt thru the appliqués. Any ideas? This is only part of the quilt since I have no way of photographing the whole thing. The open white space in the pic is for tucking in the pillows I guess. Possibly some feathered wreaths. The rest is all appliqué. I am no where near an expert. But I look at this as a great piece to practice feathers, etc. any ideas from you experts out there?
