I described it to her, told her exactly how it was made etc and she said “So how much?” Now.. let me first tell you, this lady has bought quilts off my bed, very obviously used since they were on the bed, and didn’t balk at the price. But this time I told her I wanted $500 for the quilt and she literally screamed at me, “but it was free to you!”
Let’s see… free to me? Yes, the triangle squares were all given to me, true, no cost in making the quilt top, except for my time. It is a 90 inch square quilt, and it took three yards of backing fabric at $19 a yard. The quilter did a fabulous job at putting it all together at the cost of $192. I will probably spend a billion hours, give or take a few, putting on the binding, but my time isn’t worth anything..
So the total cost of this quilt out of pocket cash expenses was $249 plus my worthless time, I don’t think $500 is enough… the price just went up to $600 and I sure hope she doesn’t change her mind about not wanting it because it might go up even more if she calls me back.
