    OK..here is my 2nd and final UFO challenge quilt...finished...Yea!

    I don't care for it and DH suggested that I try to sell it. Should I try ebay or etsy and what should I ask for it?

    It is 57" X 57" and the quilting is all black and is randomly placed cave man type stuff like spiral circles..animals, hand prints, foot prints, etc.

    What do ya'll think?

    Don't know if you can see the quilting or not

    I have found you get more on Etsy, but may have to wait awhile to sell, whereas Ebay is quicker to sell but people are not willing to pay as much. Etsy is more for artists and craftspeople, and ebay is more a large garage sale. Both have their benefits.

    Beautiful quilt- good luck selling it!

    (If you don't/can't/won't sell it, Churches often have chartity auctions, or hospitals often accept blankets for sick children.)

    Project Linus is my next resort..I'd rather give it away than sell it for an insult...but I really don't know what would be reasonable.

    Oh gosh--that's awesome. The design is unique and the specially pieced back makes it even more valuable.

    I have a hard time pricing stuff... but for that size and workmanship and uniqueness I'd go $250 minimum. Start at $300. :wink:

    Where to sell is the biggest problem. I find once I have a few buyers, they come back. Having photos on my website helps a lot--for potential buyers to see what's available.

    I checked craigslist, eBay and etsy. How does $150 sound? The quilts that seemed to actually sell were between $50 and $200.

    Beautiful work!

    Go for it. But not on E-Bay to many hidden charges. I looked into it. I'm selling some of my quilts too. You may want to check out feer addvertisments. There are alot out there.

    Thanks for all the advice. I think I'm going to set up an etsy account. I had been selling some handmande Pet christmas stockings on ebay and having pretty good luck, but I think I"ll try something new this time. I'd be thrilled to get 150-200 for this quilt! Wow...more fabric money :wink:

    I really like your quilt and don't see why you don't like it but everyone to their own taste. Don't have a clue where to sell it or what to ask for it. Good luck on whayever you decide.

    It's beautiful! Good luck selling it, though I don't think you'll have a problem.
