    Talking Evening greetings from Nebraska!

    I am so glad to have found this site! I am somewhat new to quilting, and am quite obsessed with everything about it. I have made a few nursery bundles and I am being asked to make more to sell. Anyone have ideas on how to estimate cost? I have heard of the cost of materials multiplied by three rule. I am just not sure. One bundle comes with a quilt, quilted bumper, quilted wall hanging, quilted valence, dust ruffle, diaper caddy, diaper bag, curtains, flat sheet, and a fitted sheet. I use patterns from books as well as custom make them. I machine sew, but hand quilt if it is a family member. I have not a single clue how to come up with a price for selling this. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi from Ohio! It is really hard to price stuff I agree, especially with the economy. I can't help you there, but I am sure someone will.

    Welcome to the board. I believe the 3 times materials cost is fair and somewhat accurate to price your quilts.

    May I suggest making smaller bundles and then having the expectant parents (and grandparents) have options to add on? Example - basic bundle can be quilt for crib, dust ruffle, bumper pad, and sheets.
    Bundle #2 can be coordinating wall quilt, curtains, diaper caddy.
    Bundle #3 can be to add on a diaper bag. My thought is that the entire listing will be way too expensive all at once - if you are placing the proper value on your items. I also know that when I have made a Professional Tote (similar to a diaper bag in some regards), it took me at least 9 hours to do.
