    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.

    I just wanted to share this Plus Quilt that I just took off my Millie.  I used the Diamonds are Forever panto and I think it turned out really well.  Customer didn't want straight line quilting as she didn't want it to look to contemporary, but didn't want to pay for crosshatching to make it look old.  I think this was a nice compromise.

    Oh, I feel for you.  I hope shaving it helps enough so that you can hardly see the bearding.

    What about a silvery gray thread that would cover the whole quilt?  Of course, it would help to see the quilt for us to make a better suggestion.

    I think if you pull your threads to the top, hold them for a second or two when you take your first stitches, then take 2-8 stiches backward and then forward, you won't have any nesting problems on the back.  You will be able to tell from the top if you are taking too many stitches from the build up of threads too.  Go with what looks pleasing.

    I like the way that the appliqué pops out from the background McT.  Very nice work.

    Just finished this quilt for a customer who wanted minimal quilting on it as it is "folk art".  She chose McTavishing for the background, so I did just enough stitching on the qpplique to hold it down.  I had to work on this quilt in the dark with a side light just so that I could see where I was going and where I  had been using So Fine Pearl on top and Cream Fil-Tec on the bottom.

    That's a lot of quilting for minimal quilting so I hope you were paid for it.  I've always liked McT and you've done a beautiful job.
