This post started because I saw an article on Sew Mama Sew on Placing a Value on your Quilts . After reading it and following all the links on the subject, I knew I wanted to keep this for future reference.
I am just finishing a quilt for my DIL's friends' son. It's a TShirt quilt using his shirts from his 10 years as a cub and boy scout. He just got his Eagle Scout award and this is his remembrance of his scouting journey. Now, we had not discussed costs and I was unsure of what to charge. I have quilted in the past; but only made it for special people: a quilt for my son from the shorts I made him the year he went to college. A double wedding ring quilt I made with my sister Alice for my Mom and Dad's 50th wedding anniversary. And last year, the quilt I made for my granddaughter using 4" squares of knit fabric that I had machine appliquéd letters, numbers, and her name.
The first articles are on the subject of how We are Sew worth it.
