The quilt I made for charity

So, I'm done. Only 2 weeks late, but I'm done. Ish. I still have to cut loose threads, and sew up a few things by hand. But it's done. Should I point out all the flaws or should I let you look at it as a whole? Quilting always has a lesson for life.

BTW, seriously, what do you think would be a reasonable price? If you were to buy it, and not pressuring you, what would you pay if you had the money? Measurements 30" x 41". I was anxious for a little while that there are no bids...but I did what I could do and can't control the bidding. Still, I wonder what a reasonable price is...

Lovely quilt!

Lovingly donated.
Priceless.......

Believe it or not, the last handquilted/handpieced quilt I got appraised (king size) (at the request of a friend who thought I underestimated it's worth) came back at near $4,000.
I nodded, thanked the appraiser and gave it to the neighbor......cuz he's such a kind person.....

It's gorgeous. I have no idea how to price something like that. I know they go for a lot here. There are a lot of Amish in the town next to mine, and they sell these amazing quilts for lots of money to tourists.

I'd pay more because it's yours.

Wow Mel. You quilt? Was it yours?

TallmiT- could be yours for as little as $40!

Churlita- I must say, I don't get excited by Amish quilts. I went to the museum in Lancaster, PA and was most excited by the hooked rugs.

Monty - could be yours for as little as $40!
