Overall, I am happy with how the quilt turned out. The quilting mostly looks pretty good and I love that the quilt is extra big so my husband and I aren't fighting over the blanket. I do not love that I ended up having to trim 1/2" plus off of each side to get rid of the folded over fabric and that there are several places in the quilt where the quilting is not lined up. Most of the other issues are less noticeable now that the quilt has been washed.
After my previous post the quilter responded and and apologized and ended up refunding my money. That is not why I made the post and I did not expect anything from her, but it was very kind of her.
I know that I am not the only person who has had issues with this quilter because two separate people contacted me after my post correctly guessing who the quilter was because they had similar issues recently. This quilter was highly recommended to me by several people and, while the experience was upsetting and surprising, it would not deter me from sending quilts out to another quilter. My expectations of and communication with the quilter would definitely change the second time around.
Finishing up the timing on this was perfect since we also just finished our bathroom remodel and I thought I'd share a few photos since the remodel has been taking a massive amount of my time and energy lately.
The process was painful, but it was worth it. Now I just need about a zillion dollars to redo the rest of the house.
Speaking of our house, if you follow me on Instagram you may have already seen this, but look who we found on our front doorstep yesterday!
Yes, it's a rattlesnake. And I did not realize it was a rattlesnake at the time or I would not have run to get my camera. But this guy is now safely in the hands of animal control and hopefully this will be our last rattlesnake encounter for a while!
