Hello, Happy Quilters!It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood!! Well, in the Quilt Like Crazy neighborhood, it's actually rained quite a bit this past week.

Inspirational Joke of the Week: You know I've had enough coffee when I can thread the sewing machine needle while it's still running! Hahaha!
Quilty Tip of the Week: If you have fabric that seems very loose or limp and seems to stretch easily, just give it a small spritz of spray starch or Mary Ellen's Best Press, then give it a quick press with your iron to help stabilize the fabric some so that it won't stretch as much when you try to cut it.
Weekly Q & A:
Q:"Is there a way to have your company make a custom quilt for me and how much would that cost?" - Sarah, Lakewood NJ
A: Sarah, there is no easy or short answer to your question. At this point in time, there are no services available for ordering a quilt on the website, but there are plans for this in the future. A blanket cost cannot be determined without knowing what fabric you would want, the pattern options, size of the quilt, the other materials that go into it, such as thread, batting, borders, backing fabric and binding, and depending on the size and complexity of the quilt, the labor involved in making it. That being said, the owner of Quilt Like Crazy will take projects on a case-by-case basis and you should call the shop at (469) 319-2800 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, to get any assistance with this request.
