    Update to 4th of July SunBonnet Sue & Sam

    I was able to finish it by this past Friday but haven't had time to get it posted. Here is the finished lap quilt. Now what to do with it? I would sell it but wouldn't have a clue as to how much. Any ideas?? It measures 33" x 40".

    Absolutely adorable!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Sew, sew cute! No idea what to charge for something so nifty.

    The stars for Sue and Sam adds that special touch. Have no idea what to charge for it. Check prices on Etsy. Maybe you'll find something comparable. Thanks for sharing.

    I know many people on this board sell some of their work. I have never felt that I could ask (or maybe I should say GET) what an item was worth, and if I can not profit from selling it to someone I do not know, I would rather give it to someone I know or donate it. I have had successful silent auction donations where the quilts have brought a reasonable price, but I doubt that I could have sold it for that much myself.

    Does anyone here have any suggestions about this issue? I have looked at Etsy, and many of their quilts are priced OK, but do they sell? Many of their quilts are small pieces... Do they sell?

    Beautiful patriotic quilt! I love it. I have made several patriotic pieces and have a "collection" of those fabrics I keep adding to for my next project.

    Happy 4th!

    Even I, who detests Sunbonnets, think that's a neat quilt

    I wasn't ever fond of them, but figured I'd give it a shot and was glad I did.
