1- I want to keep quilting, without spending so much on the hobby that its hard for our family financially.
2- There are so many tastes and styles with quilts, I want the things I make to go to people who will use them. I hate the idea of making something and giving it to someone who doesn't really want it. If I don't know their style well enough, it might sit in a closet forever.
So...in order to meet those two things, I'm going to start selling my quilts for the cost of materials instead of trying to make a certain amount an hour for labor. Its a labor of love right. So, if there is a quilt you've been wanting but don't have time to make - I'll make it for you :)
I've also decided that I'm going to separate my quilting blog stuff and my family blog stuff. I always feel a little sheepish posting all these quilting pictures when most of you just want to see pictures of my cute kids. Now, I can post all the pictures I want guilt-free. My quilting blog is flyawayquilt.blogspot.com. Here's one last post to go out with a bang. (I've been into pillows and bags lately). (ps - I'll be updating my shop to show cost of materials prices in a little while. I'm out of computer time today...which means David is trying to bang on the keyboard).
