    These are at my cousin's consignment shop. The largest is 67in by 76 in, with the others close in size. They are asking $48 each. They look to have been hand pieced. What do you think?

    Sometimes, things made with love are hard to put a price upon. Follow your heart. :)

    I'm really tempted by the first one and the last one, in particular. She thinks they are from the 60's. Do you think the price is fair?

    They are very nice, and look to be in good condition. Just look them over carefully to be sure they are what you expect them to be...i.e. if you are wanting vintage, are the fabrics really vintage, etc. Prices on eBay are all over the place, depending on pattern, colors, age, etc. $48 seems to be on high end for simple scrappy patterns. They all three look to be 30's-40's to me, because of the fabrics and patterns. In the 60's they were using more modern looking fabrics, and more blend fabrics.

    It may just be the pictures and the fact that they're not pressed, but some of them look like they may not lie flat. I had that problem with some vintage blocks I bought. Ended up taking them all apart and re-sewing. Other than that, they all look good to me. I especially like the first one.

    I was thinking that last one I would snatch up if I could. I love it. They are all beautiful though.

    I like the top one looks 30's-40's. If you really like it 48.00 isn't to bad. Sometimes the price you pay is how much you really like and want it.

    The look like 40s to me.

    Those two I would pay that price.. not the others..

    The improved nine patch looks like it wont lay flat. I looks to be a later date.. maybe 60s
    I would leave that one

    I agree with the last response...I think the price is a little high for scrappy. I paid $20 for a handpieced one from the 30's from an antique shop. That was very low...I think $35-$40 would be a fair price.
