    Taking a poll what would you charge?

    What would you charge for a 60 x 60 quilt made like the picture. I'm not sure I'm charging enough and would love your feedback. Mahalo

    That's a pretty one! Nothing under $200-$250 I think. I see simple baby quilts, just squares selling for $130 on Etsy.

            You were given the link to this thread and asked to please not post a duplicate post in the other section. I wasn't rude. I included the link so you could find it. If you think that was being mean or unfriendly, then I'm sorry because that isn't how it was intended.

              Is it an appliqued turtle on a big square of fabric, with one pieced frame, then several solid frames? I guess you can charge what you want, but it doesn't look that labor-intense to mee. Thank you, in advance, for letting me feel like I can voice MY opinion amongst friends.

                  Yes it's appliqued and they are all different pieces not one big piece. Legs, head, tail and 2 different shapes on the shell. I stitch a blanket stitch on every piece so it shows up on back of the quilt.

                    Well then I apologize it came over as harsh because there was no explanation just what i needed to do. I've been on this site for a very long time and no one has ever done this to me. I didn't realize it was being policed. I'll be more careful and aware of where I'm asking stuff. Thanks for your help

                          I have to agree on the labor part. Does not seem like this would take much time to put together. It is very pretty, but I can't even see the quilting. I guess the price would depend on the market for such an item...where I live...I don't think you could get $200 for such a simply pieced quilt, that is only lap size....IMO

                            In defence of Sandy, we both live in Hawaii. It's expensive to live here and a very tourist based economy. I think $200 is totally fair.

                              1. I love this; the fabrics are beautiful!
                              2. Figure out what the materials cost you. Don't forget batting and thread!
                              3. Figure out how long this took to make, including cutting the fabric. Multiply hours times at least $20, and add to materials cost.

                              Last summer, DH and I went to Ithaca, NY, for a wedding. While there we went into an artisan gallery (i.e. not just paintings). There was a lovely crib-size quilt made of gorgeous batiks. It was $700.

                              DH freaked out and wanted to know who in their right mind would charge - or pay - that much. But once I pointed out how expensive the fabric probably was, plus time involved in the piece-work, plus $.02 per square inch for the quilting, PLUS the fact that whatever the shop paid the artist, they had to double that price, and he agreed that $700 was about right.

                              Which is also why the buyer at the gift shop that carries my pillows & table runners and I agreed that I won't be bringing them any actual quilts...
