Is it just so the insurance company can make more money on premiums? That's always seemed kind of snarky to me.
Yeah, me too:

In this economy and so many people quilting, I just don't see anyone paying that for a quilt.

I think you're forgetting about the increased value your quilt has gained from being in a national AQS quilt show. Those shows have the reputation of showing the better quilts... so that adds value... And if your quilt won any recognition/prize, its value would increase even more. Even a quilt that appears in a national magazine increases its value just by virtue of being in the magazine. Congratulations, you should be very proud of your talent being recognized!

I have seen your quilts and I'm sure it is worth that. Your work is awesome.
