    Red face what to charge for hand-quilted quilt

    I like to quilt so I have many quilts and don't know what to do with them. I've decided to try to sell them.

    What do I charge for a quilt that is already made?

    That depends on so many things -

    A few things to consider - and I am sure others will add more -

    1) How big are they?
    2) How are they made?
    3) Are they attractive?
    4) Where do you live?
    5) How/where will you market them?

    6) How many hours did you spend making them?
    7) What did the fabrics and supplies cost?
    8) Original design? A pattern? A kit?
    9) Age of quilt
    10) Marketing and shipping costs
    11) Are you wanting to make a profit? or just wanting to disburse and get some cash?

    Prices vary by geographic location. I would look in consignment shops to see what prices are in your area. You can also look at completed transactions on ebay, or etsy listings.

    I would look at what the Amish are charging for similar quilts. You don't need to have them living near you to check---some have websites now, and sell from them. It may be more worth your while to sell the unfinished tops to quilters who want to finish them.
