  1. Hi, 

    This quilt is the last one pieced by a friend's mother who recently passed away suddenly. I told her I'd quilt it for her but I don't know how it would look best. 

    I do some ruler work & a little free motion if custom is used. I'm not a very experienced custom quilter but I can do swirls, etc. 

    Any suggestions are appreciated. 

    Thank you,

    Joan

  2. Good morning,

    I know someone who would like to contract for someone to make a tree skirt for her out of her mother's wedding gown.  It is mostly lace.  I piece quilts but am not interested as I'm trying to get some of my own things done.

    If you're interested, pm me and I can get the two of you together.  She knows what goes into making quilts and would pay a fair price.

    Thanks,

    Joan

  3. I have a lot to learn too.  I'm not quilting for others now because it just doesn't pay enough and is more stressful than my day job...not that I won't sometime in the future but I have plenty to do with the job, etc, etc.

    I digress...I love the design and your quilting.  I would've never come up with a design like that.  Awesome job!

  4. This is crazy but I never had this happen until yesterday.  It turned out that my tension wasn't tight enough.  I was testing it to be sure all was okay and the straight lines were fine but the first circle I did had nests on the bottom.  Just the first one though...after that it straightened out.  

    I'm not suggesting that this is your solution since you're so experienced...it's just what happened to me.
