    A friend of my daughter's has asked me to make a memory quilt from her deseased father's clothing. The fabrics would be denim, flannel and shirting. I suggested a rag quilt since there would be a mix of fabric. She will pay me for it but I have no idea what to charge. Any suggestions as to the price? It would be a lap or afagan sized. Any suggestion or ideas would be most welcome.

    Thank you, Roserita

    Does this person want this to be done as a favor or do you want a fair return for your time and effort?

    Not trying to be cynical or snotty here, but - - - -

    I am sure it is not as a favor, as I don't know her that well.

    I think someone else on here did that exact same thing and ended up having to redo it. :cry:
    That's touchy...I wouldn't even go there myself.

    One of my student's mom's felt strongly her daughter would survive not seeing me every day (5th grade does end :wink: ) unless she had a quilt made by me. I told her I didn't do orders because there's too much I want to do and I don't do it for the money. But she wore me down. I told her $15 an hour, but I didn't know how long it would take. I told her it wouldn't go over $300. They paid for the flannels, and I kept close track of my hours and it came to $250 or so--but she gave me $300 anyway.

    It's just not something I want to do. If something's going to go wrong--you know it'll be when the project is someone else's

    Another parent asked, and since she was also a friend, I said "no, but I'll teach you how to make one for your daughter."

    Sigh.... I hate saying no, but I'm getting really good at it.

    Good luck--go by the hour--give her a cap--and see what she says.
