    What hand quilted item would you be most likely to purchase, other than a bed quilt? You may choose more than one. Thank you for your input! [​IMG]

    Thanks to the people who voted in the poll. It helps me decide what items to begin making this winter to put up for sale and I really appreciate it! [​IMG] More votes are appreciated though, so keep 'em coming.

    To clarify, the items I'm talking about would be machine pieced, but quilted entirely by hand. I'm still a pretty good hand quilter, if I do say so myself. Beats a foreign-made Walmart quilt any day of the week, hands down and I say that with utter confidence. [​IMG]


    Here is an example of my quilting so you can see what I'm talking about:

    I would LOVE curtains made! nice country quilted curtains. My bedroom windows are not normal and are huge..I have yet to find anything from anyone- anywhere who has them or what I like. I'm not even picky:( We have flannel sheets covering my windows right now-at least the sheets match! [​IMG] do you make those Cyn???

    No, I don't make anything except actual quilts and on occasion, I applique a quilt block onto a sweatshirt. I can't sew worth a lick! Can't make clothes, etc. Trust me, I've tried. My best friend in HS was a home ec major. She tried to teach me. My aunt was a home ec teacher and she tried. I'm hopeless, LOL.

    I'll have to research and see if I can find an example of what you're talking about. If you find one online, send me the link, okay?

    Hey Speckled Hen, what about seasonal wall hangings? I think those would sell.
    My vote goes to table runners and place mats.

    Sunny-sewing curtains is easy, all straight lines and flat panels. You can do it!

    Have you ever thought of making quilted totes?

    The seasonal wall-hanging idea is a great one - my mother-in-law quilted for years and made Christmas and Valentines and birthday hangings for all the kids - they are treasures!

    Quilted hot pads?

    If you make anything quilted with a chicken theme I want to know about it!

    Quote:I have done wall hangings and/or table runners in seasonal colors, but themes, I don't do. For instance, here are a couple of items you might see as matching this holiday season, though it's just due to the colors:

    I've done sweatshirts with appliqued quilt blocks on them like this:
