  1. work with it and see what works for the quilt. See what the client wants and cares about. If a big thing is matchy matchy - then use the same front and back. If that doesn't matter, have fun and WHO CARES!!!!!

  7. Magnets bad. i remember one of my old friend from the Apple days going out on a house call for the computer. He asked the lady for the disks that came in the box. She said "oh! Just let me get them off the fridge." He left and sent the bill. That was one of the funniest stories i heard beside the disk drive being a coffee cup holder. hee hee i have a bucket at one end of the macine. It is pretty full. The thing with vaccum cleaners, is that use the hose. If you use the normal suck up, you will eventuall burn up the motor. have fun!!!

  11. I just finished this last week for a client. Her son is graduating from Grad school. He was in the Peace Corp and collected t shirts from all over. He married an African lady, so the mom also included Ashanti (sp) symbols on the back. She did this with a dye discharge method. We used highlites purple thread front and back. It blended in well with all of the traditional african frabics that the mom used (she purchased on a trip over to visit her son. We used Quilters Dream 100% cotton batting. Quilted very nice but it produces a bit too much lint for my tastes (and nose!). The pattern

  15. I have been so nuts since getting back to work that I forgot to say It was so great to meet you! I have a 4 day weekend and can\'t wait to try out all my new techniques Julia!
  16. Snubbing aside, your work is your work. I agree with Karen that She felt her pieced tops were great and probably inspired her to want her own machine (yadda Yadda - been there ) But in know who quilted what and give them credit. Be nice but Firm. Besides . . . cosmic karma . . . if she is decietful, it will come around sometime. You just may not be there to watch the show. good luck!!!!:cool:
