Deceased Infants Cost $$$

I had a very nice e-mail from Lisa Marine, who is the image reproduction and licensing manager for the Wisconsin Historical Society. First of all, she complemented my work. (I had sent her a .jpg so she could see what I was taking about.) Then she informed me that it would cost $50 to put that 1.5"x1.5" baby on my quilt. It was a little jarring at first, but let's face it, I probably spent that on all of the other fabric and embellishment on the quilt, plus, it helps support the historical society. I will send a check in a week or so, and add the cost to what I might have charged for the quilt when I sell it. Overall it has been very informative to go through this process.

I have had trouble commenting before as well. YOur quilt is very interesting and the baby is haunting. I hope you include all the history when you sell the quilt.

Haunting is a very good descriptive word for that baby, and all post mortem photography. I spell "mortem" wrong every time. I have to figure out how o really spell it.
