    A dear friend of mine wants to buy this from me. She is retired and on a fixed income, so I don't want to over price it. It is a queen size. (not quilted yet, this is just the top so far). I will do my own quilting.

    How much should I charge her?

    Dawn, that is simply beautiful. What a great choice of fabrics! It is worth a lot more than you are going to want to charge a dear frien on a fixed income. All the fabric and your time!!! Plus you are going to quilt it for her too?

    Now that's a hard question to answer...you want to be fair and ask what she can afford but yet not jip yourself out of all your hard work that went into making it. Maybe just ask her what she thinks is fair...then go from there

    It is beautiful!!!
    I'm with Donna, it's hard. See what she offers and decide if you can live with that.

    Charge what you think were fair if YOU were the one buying and she was selling.. What would you pay for it?

    I so undercharge my quilts for family and friends that it does not bother me as it does some, I enjoy knowing they love and use the quilts as they are intended to be..

    That's a hard call. I would let her know how much time and the cost of your supplies cost and ask her what she thinks is fair. If you are willing to do it just for the cost of supplies maybe that would be an option IF she is a VERY good friend...

    It's a hard call. Most people that do not sew or quilt do not understand the time and money that goes in to our creations.
