The Chauffeur can sew!
I have two customers who always come to the studio together. They drop off and pick up their quilts as a pair. The daughter of one has driven them here since the beginning. I can’t even tell you how long I have quilted for them. The daughter is cheerful and works at McDonalds. They come around her schedule. She always has treats for the animals and she occasionally has an opinion about the pattern or the thread color her mother chooses for her various quilts.
Last week they came to drop off the two quilts that are on my schedule for this week and the daughter is very excited because not only is this quilt her quilt, but she has pieced it as well. All input for thread and pattern is hers alone.

Ann was worried I would reject her quilt because it was not perfect and she knew it and she would understand if I said I could not quilt it. I laughed. I can quilt just about anything, so there won’t be a problem there. Happy with my answer, she chose her pattern and thread choices and turned to call Toby and Eubha to come get their treats.
Ann’s first quilt is quite nice and I’m sure she will be pleased with the results. I know I am.
