I have decided to go ahead and take orders for t-shirt and memory quilts. I spent today making another sample quilt. This one only uses t-shirts and does not have sashing between the blocks. I was able to get some t-shirts from our local Community Outreach. They are normally 50 cents apiece but you can stuff as many in a bag as you can get in there for $5. I only wanted 9 or 10 shirts so the lady only charged me $2.50. I love the variety I got.
Not a great picture because it is laying down. I still need to add the binding.
I'm working on a pricing table. I have done lots of research and am kind of surprised that the prices most quilters charge for t-shirt quilts are very comparable. I think I have a good idea of what to charge. I'm going to start out trying to get local orders and then add on-line orders. I may be going about this backwards. But it would be really nice if I could just keep it local and never have to worry about mailing quilts.
I also spent a little time in EQ6 trying to decide what I wanted to do with the "Tree Time" blocks. Not sure I got anywhere on that.
No school again tomorrow. I really need to clean the house. Oh well, who knows what tomorrow will bring.
