This is the second broken chevron that was requested by a customer. It wasn't what they expected, they picked the fabric and pattern. I was frustrated and didn't get more than one picture, oops. Neither of us could get into the project.
They picked Pearl Bracelet in rainbow colors. The colors appeared real dark for a baby quilt. They decided they didn't want it and then decided they would take after all. I took the liberty of choosing a striped binding, that I thought tied it together and lighten it up a little, they hated it. They claimed it made to the quilt too babyish. Each to their own opinion. I love stripes as bindings, and even have them on the two lap quilt Richard made me.
We now see why people charge a deposit on quilts on etsy when making a custom order. Have you ever made a custom quilt for someone and they backed out? How did you deal with this? We are making a second quilt at cost, eating labor for them to be happy. Not our easiest customer so far.
It is funny we wrote this post months ago and hated the quilt so bad (well the experience with this customer) that I never posted it. It is time. It must be shown.
