That's what I was thinking! The prices are craziness! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: Honestly,they are awesome quilts,but I don't see how they are different than other quilts other than the fabrics and some have letters on them. I would teach myself to sew a quilt and do it by holding the needle between my teeth,blindfolded,with my hands behind my back before I'd spend 2,000 on a king sized quilt. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:

Quilting is kind of hard if it's not your thing. I tried my hand at it, and I couldn't stick with it. I hated piecing and found it to be quite tedious, but the actual quilting part was ok, just very time consuming. It also makes a big difference if you're doing it by hand or on a sewing machine, which is somehow like cheating to me.

Those are great quilts, with a great concept and great creativity behind them.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
But for $2,000 a shot, I'd hope for more than what appears to me to be variations on very similar designs. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:

If I were to ever charge taht kind of money for one of my quilts it would have to be made from pretty special material, have zillions of pieces and be stunningly hand quilted.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
And it wold have to be a custom order - I woldn't do all of that and have it sitting around waiting for someone to take a liking to it and then maybe buy it!

Quilting's one of the dangerous hobbies. If you do take it up, read about how to organize quilting supplies *before* learning how to quilt. Or you can kiss one room in your house goodbye.

I made a quilt once. It must not be too hard. LOL Mine isn't particularly well quilted, though, and not well pieced either.

You might want to check out <a href="http://www.craftster.org" target="_blank">www.craftster.org</a>. There are probably lots of rock/metal related projects and people often post instructions.

i would want 2,000 for 5- 6 months of work... even part time.<br><br>
and i'd pay for it- exceptional art, that is. although those metal quilts are cool, i don't find them exceptional.<br><br>
that terese agnew though... *amazing*

I would do it for exceptional art too - but not something that is eye catching but techincally quite straightfoward and simple.
