    Dang, you mean to tell me I could have just made and auctioned a quilt instead of spending three years waiting tables, tutoring, and cleaning houses to put my DD through college?!? NOW you tell me! :lol:

    Most likely the Grandmother made it for the student, the student does not appreciate the effort or love that went into the quilt, and years from now the student will regret having sold it. But a million? I have two in college now, and it is not that expensive - unless, of course, the student is studying the art of having a good time! :lol:

    Lovely. His last sale - a tied Wolf quilt - also Grandma made - sold for $30.

    I think he's being optimistic, and/or rates Grandma's work VERY highly :) lol

    I know we quilters tend to undercharge for our work, but this is rediculous. All I can say is "Good Luck Sweetheart!"

    Now, now, everyone...we all know the price of cotton has risen, and after all, she is offering free shipping, LOL!

    I needed a laugh this morning and all of your comments about this overpriced quilt have really put a smile on my face! Thanks everyone!

    I would say that quilt is one she wants to keep for herself. I wonder if its lined with gold?

    Doggone it...I was going to make a bid, but I need two that match!! Just my luck! Only one!!!
    For that price, I think it should come as a set - the quilt and the college student to clean my house when she's not in class!

    I not happy with this way of selling, but I have to give him credit for thinking highly of the quilt she made for him. He priced it higher than most would and have in the past--think Goodwill, garage sales, etc.

    Full college tuition from the sale of just 1 quilt? I knew I was doing it all wrong - working my way through college, 40-50hr work weeks, night classes for years & years, no financial aid, no student loans. Silly me - I should have just sold a quilt and saved myself all that hard work!

    It also offers free shipping. For that, they could hire a private jet to deliver it. Plus free dinner. Quite a few free dinners.

    OK I am the bad one i sent the seller a question and ask her if she was nuts or is this a typo? I bet she will read me the riot act. But i had to ask that is outrageous.
