Hello again my fabulous quilting friends! Thank you all so much for giving me so much input along the way with my growing as a quilter! It's so exciting to get responses from you all and boy, do you all know your stuff!
I need some help with what to charge for a project. I am not the world's best quilter by any stretch so this wall-hanging is not that great as some. The finish quilting is going to be very simple as I cannot do more than that. I haven't learned how to FMQ yet to any extent of being decent enough at it. I am posting a pic here for you to see. I know I will charge for the fabric and I had to buy a fancy ruler but I'm willing to split the cost for that as I get to keep it! :) The pattern was free as was the batting and backing. I will still want to charge something for them as I had them from my stash and because I used them, I will have to replace it. The backing is a boring muslin but the reason we did that was to save $$ and also the presenters (this is a gift) want to sign the back.
So, I stiched a grid pattern using clear monofil. thread. I will use it on the edges in a stripe pattern and will finish that today or tomorrow.
So, what do I charge for my time? This was using a Batik bundle and extra fabric for border and I'm sure they are in a bit of sticker shock just from materials alone. When I added up the fabric it was about $100, plus the ruler at half price is $8. Not including batting, muslin, thread and my time.
thoughts? I am not sure I should charge much because it isn't perfect.
