The expected and the unexpected

    Things never happen like I think they are going to. I don't have my square in a square blocks trimmed yet. Things just always take longer than I think they are going to.  

    First the unexpected. Some one from Spain is contacted me on Etsy about maybe wanting a quilt from me!! I spent much of Monday trying to learn about international shipping. Good grief it's expensive! Not only will it cost $300 to ship it, but then they will have to pay another $300 or so for taxes and duties! The post office will ship it for $64, but their maximum they will insure is only $600 which is less than half the value of the quilt. This person doesn't appear to be interested in that option. If anyone has any other shipping suggestions that they think would work better, or you know something I don't know; please leave me a comment. Now this person is thinking about ordering a custom quilt instead of ordering one already made, so I have been doing some drawings.

     On to the expected. This is the weekend of the Inman Park Festival in Atlanta. I will have a booth full of quilts there. There will also be tons of other artists with beautiful work, a tour of homes, and a wild parade, and I don't know what else-probably music. The homes are fabulous Victorian houses. If you want more information; they have a website:  

     Come and see me if you are near by and want a fun activity.

  1. I stopped by your amazing booth at the Inman Park Festival. My husband and I particularly admired your beautiful purple quilt. Glad I found your blog - shared it with my quilting group.
