    I'm trying to get a consensus of what people would think this was worth. I'm terrible at determining prices etc. I'm thinking of putting this up for sale on ebay or Craigs list. I'm having a hard time deciding if I should just keep it as I really like it. Here's the history on it. We went on a business trip to HI probably 8 years ago, and my hubby won this as a prize. It's hand quilted and framed in a gorgeous cherry, thick frame. It's a "art-piece" and is framed inside a double cloth frame and papered on the back with heavy wire. Similar to expensive art you buy... Anyway, I've kept it in a dark closet for 8 years because although I really like it, it doesn't match with my decorating scheme or colors. I have modern, black, white, red and chrome accents throughout our house and this would stick out like a sore thumb. Plus, I could use the extra $ right now.

    So, can you all give me a ballpark as to what you think I should ask for it? It's not signed or anything... Thanks.

    Wow, that is beautiful! I would keep it and display in your house.

    I would ask at least $100.00 for it. As the frame is worth alot of $ as well as the quilt picture.

    You sure don't want to give it away, good luck! Thanks for sharing

    I'd start at $125. The frame alone would be worth at least $50. You can always negotiate from there.

    Mine seems to be more of an art piece compared to the mass produced ones you linked to. But, I appreciate it. At least I know what's out there now.

    That is so pretty. But I can see it wouldn't fit in with your decorating theme.
