    Project Angel Quilt

    Thank you, everyone, for the many compliments and kind words. I am so happy I could participate in this group endeavor. The blocks sent for Rita really inspired me with their beauty and sentiments. I hope Rita enjoys this quilt even more than we all enjoyed making it for her.

    Drop Off and Pick Up

    Most of my customers come to my house, which is what I prefer. Sometimes guild members just give them to me at guild meeting or a sit & sew.

    Drop Off and Pick Up

    Depends on the customer ... for the ones in Santa Cruz (which is 45 mins from my house) I pick up and drop off at the monthly quilt guild I attend or an hour earlier at the quilt shop that hosts the meetings. A few of my customers I go to their houses and the rest meet me at my local Starbucks which is less than 5 minutes from my house. My husband is ill so I stopped having people come to the house. Most of the LQS' near me also have longarms so that doesn't work to meet them there. I had an understanding with one LQS that doesn't have a longarm service. But the last time that I met a customer there the owner seemed to have forgotten that he gave me permission to meet there. It was a bit awkward so I decided not to go back. It's nice to be able to sit at a table in the Starbucks anyway. But I also do a lot of the prep work via email so I already know what their quilt looks like, etc.

    Drop Off and Pick Up

    When I was in business, they came to my house. I would lay the top out in the floor and measure it, while writing up the quilting plan. We would talk about what they liked and didn't like, etc. I can see where meeting at a local quilt store would help your business.

    Some come to my house, some meet me at the LQS, some give it to me when they see me at a meeting - I can be as flexible as they need me to be!

    Attaching binding with your longarm

    Sewing binding with the longarm is very quick and easy. I charge a flat $30 for everything up to a Queen. A bit more for a King. It usually takes me a half-hour to do it so it's good money. I use regular folded binding and a C-shaped template Dennis made for me. The hopping foot sits inside the C and the two sides keep the edge flat and aligned no matter which side you're stitching. I start at the middle of the right side because I stitch the classic invisible join---also while it's loaded--and need access to the ends. It comes off the frame completed. No finishing the join on my domestic. I think I've shared that technique before if you want to do a search.

    Batting Storage- my solution

    I was asked to show a picture of my Batting storage trolley my husband made for me . I can store 96 or 120" wide batting .I can store two rolls of batting and is on casters so I can roll it out to load and clean the dust bunnies that seam to gather in my studio. sorry having problems getting pictures to load again https://www.pinterest.com/pin/538602436666718485/ maybe you can see this Ya I got it Judith

    Need batting advice

    Hi Teresa, In my opinion, you should quote her an outrageous price for the custom quilting she is asking for....maybe she will go away. As for batting, hobbs polydown gives good definition to stitches. It is soft and light and washes well. It looks better than wool in my opinion. Quilt up a small practice piece with one layer of poly and another with 2 layers of poly and another with the battings she requested to show the differences between them. From what you have said about her, she is not the kind of person who can be pleased no matter what you do. Or she simply doesn't really know what she wants and is still searching. Good Luck, whatever you do. Debbie
