I'm wondering if there is anyone in northeastern TN or Chicago, who may be interested in quilting a quilt/quilts for my daughters. And how much would she/he expect to be paid? I have not yet started, so the tops will not be ready for quilting for an indefinite time, so it could be a project for next fall after harvest, etc. This could even be done next winter for Christmas 2014.
I'm not experienced enough to take on someone else's quilts, but I do know of a couple places that will do the quilting for you. They won't be "cheap" but should do a very good job. One is Maureen at Quilter's Heaven in Northbrook and the other is Windy City Quilting (in Park Ridge, I believe). Both places have really nice longarm setups. I know Windy City Quilting's machine is computerized & I suspect the one at Quilter's Heaven is, too.
Good luck & I hope you are happy with the results wherever you have the quilts done.
Oops! I should have said (in case you don't already know), these are both places near Chicago. Northbrook & Park Ridge are suburbs to the northwest of the city.
I am pretty much shut in at my home in Young Harris, GA, and would like to meet some near by quilters of any stag of quilting. I am confined to using a power chair for mobility, but have an abundance of energy above the waist!! I have a small quilting shed - 12 x 12 - and ramps for me to use to get to it, but right now it is being used to house some avocado trees I foolishly planted from seed five years ago!!! When it warms up enough they will be able to be moved outside and I can begin using my shed once more! Would love some company to share the space with me!!!
