    I finally finished the T-Shirt Quilt that a gentleman asked me to make for him at my Garage Sale a couple of weeks ago. It came out pretty good. I am just waiting for the label to dry and it will be ready for him to pick up.

    The cost of materials was $45, so I will charge him $90 for the completed quilt.

    It was a real challenge to do and I think it turned out pretty good...we'll see if he likes it!

    Good job. You definitely gave him a steal of a price to make that for him. They are a lot of work.

    That is really nice. You should charge him at least $150.00. Your time and talents are worth far more than that, but you can only get people to pay just so much.

    I agree, I think you should at least charge him 3 X for what you paid for the materials.....

    The price was set at a max of $100 before he ever committed. I am pleased and did not feel the pressure to get it done overnight!

    I hope to attach a pic of the label, as it is now on the quilt!

    Label affixed and quilt ready for pick-up -- tomorrow!

    That man is getting such a deal. I hope he appreciates what a wonderful quilt he is getting. The back is just inspired.

    Great quilt! I thought when I first looked at the back that the bottom line said, "Quilt Harley Tough"! Guess it is getting time for another eye check-up! LOL!
