    Any ballpark figure would help. I'm not really that experienced in selling quilts.

    It is 72x81 (fits Queen size beautifully)

    Go on Etsy.com and look at some of the items there. It will give you some items to compare to. I figured out a price/sq inch for my quilts. I don't do applique, just patchwork. Your quilt is really beautiful and don't short change yourself on all the work you have done.

    Thanks. I entered this one in the State Fair and it was appraised at $1500.00. $1800.00 after it received an honorable mention at the fair.

    The State Fair quilt (Titled, Hummingbird Affair) was not as elaborate as the second one.

    Minimum I would say $800.00 NO less than that. It is a lot of work. If you count the hours you spent doing it, I am sure it will be more than 80 hours. ($10.00 an hour)

    Good luck on whatever price you decide especially in todays economy.
