    So does "get rid of it" mean you are wanting to sell it? If so, how much?

    Yes I'm going to sell it. I have to get enough guts to do that though. I guess I don't normally have enough confidence in my own abilities to ask much for my stuff. What would you think would be a good price? $20?

    You're nuts (sorry) your work is great. If you are ok with 20 then 20 it is, but.....

    The $20 would be twice what I paid for material costs. That's where I came up with that.

    I sold it. Hung it in my office for half a day and had two offers. I sold it to my Graduate Assistant whose parents are from Ghana for $20. I am happy. Now to figure out my next project. :)

    Lucky Graduate Assistant! I think $20.00 is as we say in Australia "mates rates", which is ok for co-workers and friends...but Bonni, your work is just lovely and if you decide to sell to others, you need to raise your confidence and your prices.

    Thanks earthwalker. I did do 2x cost. It was pillow forms and I just quilted around what was already there so not very creative nor hard to do. I didn't even do any decorative stitches but just a plain old straight stitch. Still, I will try and have more confidence in my quilting abilities and perhaps SLOWLY (grins) charge more. It will be tough though.

    Bonni these are beautiful, you did a great job. This is inspiration to me because I have 2 panels that I need to get started on. I also have some fabric I bought while we were in Ghana, have never cut it because it is so special I don't know what I want to do with it.Need to do something with it soon, it's been 8yrs. since we were there. Will gladly accept ideas.
