    I was VERY pleasantly surprised today at the Hannibal Quilt Show. I had my "Prairie Gems" quilt appraised that I showed on the board in March (Link below)

    To my pleasant surprise it appraised at $1750. I am still stunned. My sister wanted to give it back to me, but I made it for her and it needs to go home with her.....right after the quilt show.

    Wow, unbelieveable!

    The quilt is truly gorgeous, I just never realized they were ever that expensive.

    Your sister is one lucky person to have such a special quilt made by a special sister and with such love. :) :)

    That is a beautiful quilt. It is certainly worth that much and even more if you factor in the love you put into it.

    congradulations! i was blown away when a wool applique quilt i did a few years ago appraised for $3400. it is very rewarding to have a quilt appraised and find out the real worth of the work we do :)
