    So just finished this quilt top. It's one I'm working on for the craft fair. It's aproximately 61'' square. I think it turned out really beautiful! I'm thinking about selling it for around $100...thoughts? Too high, too low? Just right?

    I'm calling it "Musical Medly"

    Full on view.

    Close up of the blocks so you can see the material. I think it's pretty

    was too low for me. If I was wanting it I might be willing to pay 200. but it just depends on your area. You can always haggle with who ever is looking to buy it.

    It's the Smithville Jamboree Festival in Smithville TN on July 2-4th. I've got a bunch of other things ready, but they're in the low price range (under $20) this is my first real big thing that I've made. I think $100 would be reasonable...:-)

    You know your area better. I always say if both the seller and buyer are happy with the price, then it is the right one.

    BTW,,,Great quilt..My DD is a musician and I have some musical fabric. Thank you for reminding me......

    I wouldn't sell it for less than $225, but if you feel it must be less then double the cost of materials and charge that.

    Wow! That's so awesome! I have no idea what to sell it for, I'm just not wanting to price it so high that it just sits there. I want it to move! LOL

    And my husband is a bass player so when I saw this fabric at Joann's I got inspired.

    I agree you shoul charge morefor sure the cost of the material like auntbarb said and you are entitled to some cost for all the time & labor you put in.
    Start high to begin withand if you really want to lower it and you don't have any takers at first start lowering it gradually, but i would nt take less then 250.00 it great.

    I think some think it's a quilt--and others think it's the top only. It's the top only, correct?

    It's a great pattern for two fabrics!

    Best of luck in the sale!
