My Creative Space today has featured the same thing for the past few days and will do for tomorrow too. I am making a quilt to take to Saltaire with me this weekend. I had hoped to have a few ready to go but that just hasn't happened and won't happen due to the fact that I hand quilt all my quilts! So I will be taking a 'display' quilt* just to judge peoples reactions to it - I have made plenty in the past but just as gifts. Want to see it?
You might not be able to see from this picture but I am hand quilting around each animal and that is why it is taking me so long. It feels right though for the material and I think quilting in straight lines just wouldn't work with this fabulous material.
What I am having trouble with is the price - I initially thought £35 but that seems very cheap for the amount of work that has gone into it so far. I have no illusions about claiming back money for all of the time spent on it but I would like to get paid for some of the time! It measures roughly 118cm by 80cm (it isn't finished yet hence rough measurement) and it would be the perfect size for a cot or doubled over in a pushchair/pram. I'm thinking more towards the £45-£50 mark. Would you agree and if not why not?Also please do be honest - I won't be mad!!
*It will be for sale too not just a 'display' quilt :)
