Okay--there has to be a formula somewhere. I've heard to triple the cost of materials...but is that picking an average price on yardage? And thread is really included?
Or to remember how long a project took and mulitple by an amount. The way I quilt is stealing a moment here and there. It would really take the fun out of it to keep track of my time. I did it once--when a parent of a student asked me to make her daughter a quilt...and I said I'd keep track and I believe I asked for $15/hour. She paid for the flannel! It took a long time...it's always much longer than I think to make anything. She ended up paying me evern more than I asked, but I have to say, I do not like doing requests.
What about tops vs the complete package?
I don't want to make $4/hour for my quilts--I'd rather keep them for my kids' families, but I want to be fair too.
What is the magic formula?
