    R&S Design boards

    Yes, Ron and Sharon are transferring ownership to Patricia Ritter. Ron is still making the boards but has stepped away from order fulfillment personally. The owners of Miracle Chalk have also sold their business to her. She is a force of nature and deserves all the success she has achieved. Surprisingly, both R&S and Miracle Chalk owners are here in Olympia---and members of my quilt guild. I'm rubbing shoulders with quilt legends!

    Mommy and Me x3

    I was fortunate to be able to quilt Three of these baby Quilts for the same customer. She Used the Pattern Mommy and Me. She used a white on White Fabric That had a 1" diamond grid printed on it for the Background in the center area as soon as I saw that that I wanted to practice some grid work . I just went for it what do you think do you practice on customers quilts? Hope you have a great Day.

    dahlia wall hanging

    I did a bit of thread work to enhance the printed panel of these dahlia flowers. The customer had added flange border around all the blocks so first off I sewed that down so it did not catch. then did loops and leaves in the narrow areas and feathers in the center thicker areas. this was fun to do.

    Beautiful. I love looking at the backside of quilts, this one really shows your talents. I'm thinking about doing one of the "Dream Big" panels. I need to retire so I can quilt more!

    I did a little experiment at a retreat doing some improv curved piecing. I was using scraps from a fellow retreater they were cast off from a judy niemeyer quilt so odd shaped triangles mostly. I made four main clusters of curved pieces then added the putty fabcic to pull the pieces together Once they were sewn together the face emerged. A pleasant surprise. I then quilted it with a contrasting 40 weight thread. This piece was juried into the Canadian NJS that is in Ottawa this week. I did not win a ribbon but I have my quilt hanging with some very impressive quilts. I do not do this kind of quilts and stretched myself artistically to make it. I am pleased with the overall project. This piece is 20" x 20"

    Finding clients

    Join a local guild but don't be surprised if you get the cold shoulder from the resident quilter in the group. Volunteer to help with their projects. Once they see your work, people will migrate to you. Don't go after the other quilters' clientele but wait for the new members who will find you are available when the others are backed up. Word of mouth gets you lots of repeat customers.

    Finding clients

    I was told a good way to get clients is to offer free quilting for charity quilts just to get your name and work out there. People need to know your work before they trust you with an actual quilt.

    Good morning all... I’m upgrading my 2006 Millenium to Bliss and at the same time downsizing from 14’ To either 12’ Or 10’ Table (don’t have the space I had in my other home). I don’t know what to do with the displaced table and rollers, though I was told they could go to salvage. Is there interest out there in upgrading to a 14’ Setup? I’m in western NC. They could be free. Thanks! Anita

    I live in Henderson, Kentucky, and would like to sell my 2011 Lucey. She has been used for my personal quilting only and has quilted around 30 quilts ranging in size from small wall hanging to queen sized bed quilt. A Hartley Base Expander model BE-101, a Leader Grips system, a bobbin winder, the manual and instructions in printed format and on DVD, and some miscellaneous supplies are included. My Lucey uses the small L bobbin. I have enjoyed using Lucey for the past several years but am now planning to move to smaller quarters that will not accommodate her. I am asking $7200.

    Disney Princess Toddler Quilt

    I finished my Disney princess paper piecing toddler quilt. It ended up a 60 * 80. The pattern for the quilt was from a website called fandom in stitches. The piecing was very small, but I think the quilt turned out beautiful. The quilting was done on my QB (APQS Millie). It was a R and S board called hearts and flowers. This was a gift for a friend of mine who is having his first child at the age of 44. He has a beautiful heart and I thought he deserved an amazing baby gift. I am not big on baby quilts so I made a toddler one (I figured babies really don't sleep with a blanket).

    This is the second of three Dinner Plate Dahlia’s that I have quilted. This one I tried to keep the quilting contemporary. There is no feathering on this quilt. Unlike the Summer in Cabo quilt with many thread changes. This quilt I only used the one color of thread. It was a blue/grey and perfect for this quilt. Again, there is about 56 hours into the quilting.

    Show Competition

    HI all, I actually wish they would have a category for "new quilters and utility quilts". When I would go to a show, I would feel so in awe of the quilts and quilting that was being done, that I thought I could never, ever, be considered a "real quilter". Now in my old age.....I have come to terms that what I am is a "utility quilt" quilter......I love making simple quilts, that have a minimum of quilting so they stay soft and cuddly, that folks can throw on the floor, pick up, throw in the washing machine and dryer and wrap up in.....I don't have the patience and talent to make a work of art.....but I still make quilts of "value". My brother and sister-in-law recently told me that the two flannel throw quilts I made for them had a major problem.....they were going to watch a movie and got comfortable and covered up with the quilts....yeppers….they ended up falling asleep about 30 minutes into the movie....tee hee…..

    Rail Fence

    Quick rail fence for a gift. I stewed and stewed on the dark, really thought it would show the "rails"..., but no, the light won out. The whole color/contrast thing still stumps/surprises me. Stipple and machine binding.

    How about quilting some of the local quilt shops quilts that are on display with the understanding that they will suggest you when someone asks about that quilts. Also, if you are in a guild, advertise in your membership booklet and/or do some free quilting of charity quilts that are donated to your guild. If your guild has a quilt show, make sure you place some of your quilts in that show with your quilting on it. Your name as the quilter will be on that and is great advertisement.

    What I did when I first started out was I made up coupons for a Free quilting, edge to edge I choose the design, lap size or smaller, to be used within 3 months and handed them out to our sew group ladies. I also made sure my prices were very competitive ...in fact I was less than the norm when first starting out and then after my clientele was established I gradually increased my price. I do have another perk for loyal clients... 8 paid bed size quilts, gets a Free quilting for a lap size or smaller. Doing this I was able to pay off my longarm within 10 months!
