    I have been quilting for about two years and really enjoy it. I have been reading the message board and have been learning alot from all of your wonderful quilters. :)
    A question for you: How do you price your quilts for selling? I know to charge for the material but how do you charge for your time? Thanks to all!

    Hi! Welcome from Minnesota!

    I have only sold a few Bow Tucks bags and the way I figured it was to double the cost of the materials. For example, if the materials cost me $20, I'd charge $40.

    Welcome. I'm also from Western PA. When it comes to pricing quilts, especially in this area, it can be challenging. If you're selling in the actual Pittsburgh area you get higher prices; north of Pgh the prices are lower if you can sell them at all. I guess you have to know your demographics. Good luck with selling your quilts and again, welcome!

    HI! I'm originally from Monongahela, but now I live on the other end of PA.

    I too have wondered what to charge if selling quilts or other things

    If you got to the search button and type in 'pricing a quilt' you will get many different responses.

    welcome from NE PA! Now you have the state covered.

    I don't make quilts to be sold, i still have a list of "promises" and gifts to make for the next 2 years. :)

    Welcome from a Somerset County gal, transplanted in DE. I know the prices the Amish ladies are getting, which are hand quilted, but every quilt is different both in color, size and workmanship. Get the most you can!

    Hello and welcome from Greene Co. PA. I am in Clarksville and hope you don't mind telling us where you live. I have sold several over the years and it depends on many things as to what to charge. It keeps me busy just making quilts for my family.
