    Wow, someone got a steal. Seems to me there is close to $200 worth of materials in that quilt just in fabric batting and thread. You didn't charge enough for all the time it probably took to make that. Congratulations on the sale but I think you need to raise your prices!

    Congratulations on your sale - that's a beautiful quilt, but I agree that the purchaser stole it. I paid $350.00 for a quilt 25 years ago. It was hand quilted - but still, around these parts, you would never, never find a handmade quilt for $300.00.

    Congratulations and although you didn't make a lot of money it will still give you some money for supplies. I sell a few of my things at a Christmas craft show for just over the cost of the materials because it finances my quilting hobby.

    Congratulations! I sold a quilt called Stars in my Garden last year at a festival for $300. I really didn't expect it to sell and got so nervous when a lady actually bought it...ha. But, everyone told me that I had sold it for too little. I guess I could have priced it much higher, but I wanted it to sell. So, if you feel that it was a fair price that's all that matters. And you've got some money in your pocket!

    The only cost to me was the batting & backing the blocks were all ready cut to size when given to me . I am happy with the price I get to see it every week the lady that I clean house for bought it, it matches her bedroom beautiful.

    Very pretty. Good for you to sell it. We can't always expect someone to pay what we think our work is worth.
    I give most of my quilts away. My joy comes from making quilts and seeing them make someone happy.

    It's a beautiful quilt and good for you for selling it & not just storing it somewhere in your house. How nice you get to 'visit' it! Great job!

    Nothing like selling a quilt ! It gives cash in your pocket..for more fabric... and it validates your work.

    I agree with jingle. Dont worry about the price if you enjoyed making it and it brings warmth and joy to the lady that bought it - thats PRICELESS. Quilt police come in all forms.I think you did an awesome job on the quilt and when you can sell your artwork and it made you feel appreciatedfor what youve created to me thats what matters.If making quilts is a JOB and you have to count every penny than thats just great but I dont think it would be as much fun.lol

    good for you. Quilts don't sell for that much around here.
    Live and let live!

    Someone, indeed, got a great deal. Lovely work. I especially like the way you quilted the side borders: simple, attractive and complementary.
