    AGREE!!! Do not cave in....it is one of a kind and gorgeous! She would be out the fabric she supplied..too bad! It is that nice!

    I agree with $200 minimum. And if she still balks....tell her that you listed it on Ebay. The bidding has started!

    Itemize your invoice.

    What is the deal about "discount"???

    your wall hanging is fantastic! The sentiment involved would make it hard for me to withhold .......... next time I'd go for a written contract as suggested. I hope you get your agreed upon price.... if not, maybe this is your "pay-it-forward". My family says I should take orders.... I tell them to look up the meaning of "hobby".... if I were contracted, it wouldn't be fun any more.
    If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours!

I gave her some links to check out what others are charging for the same size wallhanging but very simple pattern on it. She has not gotten back to me yet.
    Boy I hate it when people try to rip others off! They have a sign in restaurants that say's good food takes time, We should have a sign saying, Good quilting takes lots of time and money. I can throw something together for little of nothing, but I can make you a heirloom that will last life times for more. Your wall hanging is very creative and beautiful. You did a great job. Since she approached you to make the item and had specific wants for it and it was under a time constraint. I would say the 200.00 would be a great deal. but she doesn't even wanna pay you for the materials let alone your time. HUMMBUG TO HER I SAY, YES HUMMBUG. don't you dare give it to her for the 60.00. I'd keep it and know I'd protected my sewing from someone who obliviously hasn't got a clue :=)(hopping down from my soap box now) Let us know how it turns out.

    I agree $200.00 would be a very fair price for this work pf art. Remember that is what it is. Drafting the pattern, collecting the components , piecing, quilt prep and quilting, binding and label. No less than 200.00.

    And it is wonderful.

    Seems unanimous......don't you dare let her have that quilt for $60!!! I would box it up and keep it in my closet before I let her have it.....and that would be a shame, it's gorgeous. Keep us posted....I'm sure you haven't heard the last from this woman.

    What's up with the discount?

    What an "entity" you are dealing with! May the world give your 'client' everything he/she deserves!

    It sounds like she agreed to $125, so I don't know why she's backing out at a cost of $126. She is getting a bargain at this price for all the work you've done. Maybe you can sell it to someone else. It's beautiful.
