    Twos quilts finished

    Hi everobody,
    I finally finished to machine quilt my two last projects.
    My brother tells me to sell my quilts to create an income but I'm not sure of the price I can ask for the quilt shown bellow (the one with the house). I was thinking to sell it €750.00 (around $1000.00). It's hand appliqué, machine pieced and quilted, all new material and it's 67 1/2" x 67 1/2". What do you think about it?













    This is the other finished quilt

    Outstanding. It is surely worth that much money but the catch is finding someone who appreciates the work that went into it (with the money).

    Your quilts are beautiful.. I agree they are worth that much but finding someone who is willing to pay that much is a problem. You could put them on E bay and see if you can find someone there.

    Your quilts are beautiful! Good luck in selling them. I agree they are worth a lot of money, but may be hard to find a buyer who can afford the price and understand their worth!

    Your quilts are lovely, and I hope you are doing well with the chemo. I don't know what the market is for quilts in France. As others have said, the market here probably would not support that price. But here the fabrics are less expensive and there are far more quilters.

    Beautiful quilts. As for pricing them... I'd look on Ebay in your area, under "Quilts for sale" and see what comparable ones are selling for. I do know that hand quilting is worth more than machine quilting. But the applique is good and the quilts are gorgeous. You also have to figure the price according to the size. (If you list on Ebay you can put a reserve price if you put them up for bids, or figure what you have invested and then add for the labor if you plan to sell them as Buy It Now.) Hope this helps. Good Luck.

    You may find having a raffle will bring in more money than trying to sell them.

    I love your quilts, such happy colors! I hope you are able to sell them for what they are worth. You might mention they are for sale to friends and family first; knowing you and your story might give them increased interest.

    Your quilts are really beautiful. My opinion about selling them is in line with the others who have posted here. I don't know if you can put a minimum price of $1000.

    Beautiful! Go ahead and advertise the sale of them. If no one can afford them you can always come down in price. They are yours.. Do as you please. I am glad you are about finished with your chemo. You will get strength back in short order. I am 6 years
    down that line.

    Your quilts are beautiful. I wonder what your brother thinks they are worth. It may open his eyes if you ask him that question and then tell him the cost of your fabric and the time you put into these works of art. Unfortunately, we never get fair compensation for the time and effort we put into our fabric creations.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    These quilts are gorgeous. I agree with everyone that they are definitely worth the asking price but not sure if you can find someone in these economic times with the money and who appreciates all the work that went into the making. I do wish you lots of luck, however and will keep my fingers crossed and will say a prayer that your chemo goes well and that you will be strong again soon.
