    Followed this with interest and am aching to know - Did it sell at $225????
    It is such a pretty quilt- would never have thought that colour combo would work, but it TOTALLY does :-)
    Please update us????!!!!!

    Hi melodyg
    It has been a few months since you wrote this post, and I too am curious to know if it sold for the price you wanted.
    I just read the whole post today and I liked the comments you had from the members.
    One quilter said something like... it's the people who have the money who buy and you never know when someone will come in with the $$$
    your post was just around Chrismas time after most if not all Xmas gifts had been bought. Soon, it will be tourist season. Keep us posted please. The discussion here has been very informative for those who are thinking of selling their quilt. Not me as I only have one quilt completed, and I am handquilting my second one.
    Great post

    A friend of mine looked on eBay to see if anyone was selling there and the prices. She tried to sell in an area loosing jobs her quilts with no success.

    I have sent 5 quilts to my Mother In Law for her shop and as of yet none have sold. But, it's a small town in PA and she is only open 3 days a week. So we will see......

    I would go $200.00. I had a lady friend ask me to do 1 for her. And asking from some of the members here. They thought 150.00 was a little cheap. I'd go 200.00.

    Don't forget to factor in a fair portion of the cost of having your machine(s) gone over each year.
