    Scrappy Desden Top Complete!!!

    Well I worked for about 14 hours on Saturday and 8 on Sunday on this top. I'm very pleased with it, but there is absolutely no way I will be able to quilt it on my machine. So I am gonna look here locally to see if I can get this on the long arm. I really really like the way it looks on my bed, so if I can't sell it I'm gonna keep it and make some pillow shams and dust ruffle. I have no idea how much to even charge for a queen size quilt and would appreciate any input from ya'll. Thanks for looking.

    Your top is beautiful! It will probably be over $100 to get it quilted, plus how much the fabric cost to make it and minimum wage for 22hours work.....Will you be able to sell it for profit? It will look very pretty on your bed.

    Very pretty, like a modernized version of the Dresden plate because of the lovely bright colors.

    This is so pretty and your own creation, so do keep it, enjoy it and pass it on as a family heirloom to someone who will remember you as one of the family artists they know and love. If you do sell it, put the price WAY up there and hope no one will buy it. (sorry, I am just a silly old grandma).... Bless you for your wonderful work. Thanks for sharing.
