Getting ready for the Quilt Show? Think about
PRICING YOUR QUILT
Assumption: Current Average price per yard of GOOD fabric is $11.00
One yard of fabric = 1440 sq inches
Compute the number of square inches in your quilt by multiplying Length x Width (will not include seam allowances)
Divide total square inches in quilt by 1440 to determine yards of fabric in quilt
Multiply that number by price per yard
Add a realistic figure for batting, thread, binding, backing
Multiply by 2 This will return your investment and give you $$ to buy more fabric!
Can you sell for that amount realistically? Know your market. Adjust price accordingly, and with consideration given to the points below.
Cotton or Batik used - Batik is more expensive
Did you purchase Fabric on sale? - Adjust price per yard accordingly….or not!
Heavily quilted, or not? - More quilting=more time invested in project
Was it custom quilted? - Custom quilting is pricier. If you paid to have it quilted, add that cost.
Was it quilted Edge to Edge? - Less time, thread, and intrinsic value than custom.
Add or subtract from total accordingly.
This pricing method is not a “business” model. It will be good and fair for those who just want to get back their investment and make a little money.
Appraised value is something entirely different. Appraised value will likely be MUCH more than you could sell a quilt for in our local markets. It’s fun to have a favorite quilt appraised, and you will see the real value of your quilting efforts as judged by experts in the field.
