I'm at the border stage of my Swell Moda U quilt for the shop sample. Last night I was basting the red cotton rick rack I bought to the innner border and this morning when I picked it up to admire my handiwork, I realized I was going to run out of rick rack! I am more than a little peeved, as I ordered an entire extra yard. And now of course I must order another whole piece plus extra, in case it is a different dye lot. Ugh.
I have made ZERO progress on our Web Sampler quilt. I ordered the finishing kit on January 31 and paid with a credit card through Paypal. The shop charged my card immediately but I did not get my kit. 3 weeks passed. I was assured it was on its way "within a week." 2 more weeks passed, then 2 more. I finally contacted the shop and asked for a refund. My email went unanswered for 4 days until I filed a complaint with Paypal, and then I got an immediate response and credit. I won't name the shop since I did get a resolution, but I am not pleased. It has soured me on this web sampler business and I doubt I will ever again do a project like this from 12 different shops. I'm really disappointed and have lost all my enthusiasm for this project.
