    This is the quilt I made for a friend of my children. This is the fourth top I made. I made matching pillows to go with it. I need to know what you all would charge for this set. The blanket is for a full sized bed.

    Your quilt is really pretty and I like the pillows you made too. I would have NO idea how much to charge.

    A quick way to figure how much to charge is to add up all your expenses to make them and then double that. You can always adjust this amount if it doesn't seem reasonable.

    personally, i feel there's no amount of money that could actually be enough to sell a quilt for- considering all the time that goes in to making one.

    The quilt looks wonderful. When I do handquilting for others I start at $10 a square foot plus batting and backing if I provide those.

    If I were you I would at least triple my expenses. Take a serious look at how much time you spent making the quilt and pillows. Don't pay yourself less than minimum wage.
