That's the sad thing about any hand crafted item. Whether it's knitting, crocheting or quilting. I view them as lost arts. Since many people don't have anyone in their family who sits and crafts, most people are content with machine made or foreign made goods. They are content with what's on the market whether it's in a big box store or from a crafts person. The thing about quilting is that it's not set up as a wholesale/retail endeavor. You can't purchase wholesale, then craft, then sell retail. I wish you luck on trying to make a business out of it. I have seen someone who sells to commercial establishments make money on their art quilts. You may try to pursue that path, instead of trying the home market.
