    This is a terrific piece. And do not accept any less than the agreed on price. She is absolutely getting a bargain at that.

    It is priceless and will be treasured forever. Does she not like it or what? What is her problem. $200 is very reasonable.

    wow.... I agree it is worth more then $60.00
    I guess that is why they say we need a written contract....

    200 sounds good to me.

    I totally agree, she is trying to get that lovely wall hanging for a song. People who do not quilt have no idea of the costs, time, and work that goes into something so beautiful. If she won't pay the $126 then tell her you are sorry but you can't let it go for less than that and keep it for yourself. Let her try to find something half that nice for less than $150!!!
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    I can't believe your client only wants to pay you $60 for a custom made quilt that is quite beautiful. At the pre-discussed $126 she is getting a bargain. I agree with the others in that it is worth at least $200. Do not let this person take if for less than $126. If she balks, then sell it on Etsy or e-bay for $200 because it is definitely worth that. It is lovely.

    I am so sorry you are having this experience; it takes a lot of work and time to make a quilt and if she agreed to a price beforehand then she should stick to that. I beleive the $126 is more than reasonable and she should actually be offering you more, I agree that if she is not willing to pay then just keep it or put it up for sale or what you feel you would like to do with it. Very detailed and lots of time spent with materials plus your design, you did a wonderful job!

    I would charge $300.00 or more. You did a lot of extra work on that quilt. Other quilters will charge extra for the other things you did. You need to charge for "stress fee" also for sewing the grandfathers fabrics in the quilt. Truly some people don't realize the time, effort and energy that goes into a quilt.

    I agree with all the others. She couldn't get a posterboard personalized framed collage for $60! She's shopped at Walmart too long. Keep it & sell it on ebay. I wouldn't take a penny less than $200 for it. And you only had 3 weeks to design & make it? She's delusional.

    Do you have a log of how many hours you put in? Minimum, $10 per hour? I'm sure it's more than 20 hours.
