A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.
The last few days I’ve stayed off the computer (except to post) and working steady on this quilt. I had talked with the owner last Saturday and she wanted to pick it up Thursday. It’s the only day she can come. Could I have it done by then? I told her yes I could have it ready. I had one on the machine I needed to finish first and then I’d start on hers.
I called last night to tell her I had it finished and that I would be home today. No doctor appointments. She tells me she can’t come until next Tuesday or Wednesday. As a professional quilter, I get this a lot. Rush, rush, rush to accommodate a customer…. the customer changes their plans without telling me. This is how some of the stress of quilting for others happens.
Oh well…. it’s one more to cross off the waiting list countdown.
The pictures are already cracking and peeling away from the fabric. I found out that the customer’s son made this quilt for his wife for their first anniversary next month. It’s his first quilt. Not bad for a beginner. The saying across the top says…. God blessed the broken road that led me straight to you. Awwww….. that’s nice.
I put a feather around the border.
