I also love the guild.  I got involved with Community Quilts right away and love being involved with that committee.  There has also been two new friendship groups off shooting from CQ- both geared towards supporting CQ but really helpful in teaching different quilting and piecing techniques.  Thank you for writing!  There has been a few members who have moved away that still come around for the show and other activities.  I just met a lady at the show, I think her name was Patty.  She said to tell people that she was the "other Patty".  I guess there was another Patty who had twins.

Hi Cheri,

Small world!  I love the guild.  I am working on Community Quilts and it really affords me an opportunity to practice and improve my quilting.  I have met so many nice quilters and have   I tried to reply to you right away but this site kept giving me an error that they were temporarily unavailable.


Nice to hear from you Sheri!

Cheri, no I have not. I have been out of town again with my mother while she had surgery. Hope to get caught up to life back home soon. Will let you know when I get the item sent.

Cheri, I am getting ready to send you a little something for finishing your Scrap Bag Triangle Challenge quilt. Can you send me your address?

Thanks Cheri. I looked at the site and love several patterns. I don't know if the LQS is still going to run the program. She moved to a smaller location without a classroom.
Happy sewing.

Is Scrap Therapy a book or class? Our LQS was doing it as a monthly drop in, but I couldn't go. I have so many scraps I really need to sew some of them up into a quilt. I've seen many beautiful quilts on the Scrap group and I love Bonnie Hunter's site Quiltvile.
Take care,

Thanks for the reminder about the stain glass. I guess I just don't have the money to put into getting it fixed. I think I know what I want to do but with Quilt Festival in Houston coming up in Nov. I am trying to save my pennies. I have never been. Going with some great friends to room with and hopefully make it cheaper. The stain glass will definatelyt be on my 2011 UFOs. WOW, that sure is thinking ahead.

Hi Cheri, Yes, it was continuous. What a class. The teacher was wonderful. Did you see my attempts? But the best of all was seeing how she went from one section to another.

As to pricing for a completed quilt, there are a number of ways you could calculate that. I was once given the "rule of thumb" to use 3 times the cost of fabric (front, batting, and back). For instance, if the fabric, backing and batting costs $150, you would charge $450 for making the quilt start to finish (including quilting).

I was recently asked to quote on doing a Double Wedding Ring (generous queen size). Here's how that went: Calculate fabric needed for front of quilt (15 yards), back (3.5 yds.), binding (1.5 yds.) for a total of 20 yards. At an average of $8 per yard the fabric would be approx. $160. Batting would run $20. Using the 3X factor, the quilt would cost $540 start to finish.

Calculating the same quilt 90 X 106 = 9540 square inches, at $.06 per square inch, that calculates to $572.40. Either method results in similar quotes.

You can also consider the complexity of the pattern, quilting to be used, and fabrics chosen as well as size in determining cost. For extremely labor intensive projects or very intricate quilting, you might want to use a higher per inch factor or go to 4X cost of materials (front, back, batting.)

And, if you are dealing with a long-distance customer, don't forget to add shipping to your quote.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for the nice comment about my room! I worked on it for about 3 weeks and now I'm trying to keep it up so I can sew and not just look for stuff.
