Actually, a colleague of mine asked me if I ever made quilts for other people. She has a daughter getting married and she has asked if I would make her a double wedding ring quilt that she could give her daughter as a wedding gift.
I told her the reason I did not make quilts for other people is that I'm afraid people will not want to pay what they are worth. She told me that money was not an object. I told her I would do some research and see if I could come up with a price.
I had already purchased the acrylic double wedding ring templates last summer.
(I don't think this is the set I bought, but you get the picture.)
So I decided to work up a couple of blocks to see how
And laid out so you can see the light areas together . . .
And the dark blocks . . .
I need to ask her if she wants me to pick the fabric. Or if she wants to furnish the material. She asked if I would make it all different colors or what. So she may want me to just use scraps I have around the house. I really hope she just says these colors are good and I can use what I have made and add to it.
I haven't really come up with a price yet. Any suggestions?
I'm going to tell her tomorrow that I will do it and work up a price over the weekend. If she agrees . . . Great! Maybe it will open up doors to earn some extra money.
I'm sure I will be back to school tomorrow. Today was a great productive day.
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.
