Yesterday was, as they promised, a messy day – snow, rain, then snow again. We didn’t get a lot of snow in comparison to many other places but it was a good day to be home and stitching.
And stitch I did. Both secret projects are finished except for their labels. This is the back of one of them. They will be revealed next week. Once again, I realized I absolutely have to get a better chair to use when sitting at the sewing machine. My back was aching after only half an hour. Somehow I don’t think antique wooden chairs were meant for use at a sewing machine. Nowhere near enough back support!
I’m thinking of selling a couple of my hand-pieced quilt tops but am absolutely stymied when it comes to putting a price on them. Have you ever sold a hand-pieced quilt top? If so, how did you arrive at a price? I know that the price could never reflect the hours and hours that go into a hand-pieced top as that would make them incredibly expensive. Tim wrote a great blog post, “What is Quilting Worth,” on the value of a hand-quilted quilt, which got me thinking about what a hand-pieced quilt top is worth. I’ve done a bit of searching on the internet on it and haven’t found much that’s very helpful.
Baxter and his pals decided to have a snowball fight.
Ever since the three robins arrived the other day, Baxter has been spending more time in his kitty tree. I love this photo of him on the top tier of his tree.
Aren’t you clever! If the project is a secret, just show the back! LOL! And I think your hand pieced projects are worth a gazillion. Not sure how many zeros that is when you write it on the price tag!
Cathi poor baxters ears are red..LOL
As for pricing I feel the quilter can only be the judge of that. Hand piecing hand quilting how is done on it is it intricate, is it simple…many factors
You find the most amazing fabrics- the backing is beautiful, can’t wait to see what is on the front!
But your quilts are priceless!
Kitties in a snowball fight could be interesting!
Robins are a good thing!
