This is off the topic, but I was wondering, Joan, do you get to keep any of
those GORGEOUS quilts you make for the quilt shop???
Oh, and yeah ... when are you going to write that book?! Believe me, you'd
be a bestseller!! :)
I am so flattered, but humbled at the same time. While I'm pretty
good technically, I just don't that that *** quality to do something
entirely original. I can twist someone else's idea.
We have options regarding our store samples. We can opt to get them
back after they've been displayed or get the materials to make another
one for ourselves or take store credit.
Pfft. You've got an amazing eye - texture, color, value, and pattern. You've
got a book in you ... you just have to find it.
I've had your album bookmarked from day one ... I love the colors you
choose, the textures, the placement ... Patterns are nice ... they're
roadmaps to a wonderful destination ... but color is the WAY that we get
there!! And most patterns are just old blocks with new colorways and use of
value and texture. So even if you used a store-bought pattern, by choosing
the fabrics that you do, you've made'em your own. And you do it
Which do you usually choose?
See, your quilts are SO gorgeous that I would HAVE to take them home. But
then, if I were the LQS owner, I'd throw my body on the quilts so's you
couldn't get them!!!
I usually take store credit. Working for a store called the Country
Sampler, many of the quilts that I've made for the store are not my
style. I use the credit for my own projects and machine quilting on
my big quilts.
