    When I asked for pricing help it was suggested that I go to itsy.com and ebay and see what the prices were on those sites. I went to them but it did not really seem to help. Please let me know if you get an answer.

    If you research this in the search function for this board it has been discussed many times here. There is so much to take into consideration. What the prices are that people in your area are willing to pay, do you do a "deal" for family/friends, is this person really understanding of the costs and time that go into making a quilt and willing to pay for your time??? There is more that has been brought up here, too. It is a really hard question to answer.

    not sure if this will help you but I do sell a few and how I do it is keep all sales tickets for fabric thread batting etc then I double that and seems to work here but other than that not sure what to tell you

    Is that for just the top? Not quilted? I can not imagine selling without charging for some of your time. I am making one and the girl bought the fabric and batting $50.00 (great sale that day) I had enough for the backing also, so I have to add in thread and binding but for a queen size $100. would be awfully cheap! I am hand quilting it also.

    the pricing really differs from person to person based on location and client pool.

    the lowest i would ever go for a queen size quilt is $3000 - i live in the NYC area and have a large client base.

    I do my own quilting by machine so that is figured in my price but I would charge 450.00 to 700.00 dollars for a queen size you are right about the
    area you live in as if we put 3000.00 dollars on one here it would never sell
    there are lots of quilters here and a lot for sale
