    So Nadia, based on your evaluation, what final number did you arrive at?

    Price to Charge for Making Custom Quilt

    Wow thank you so much for explaining it like that. So I guess the only thing that would change is the $/sq. yd depending on the difficulty factor......so what would you suggest for a difficult level of 3/5 or 4/5? I think about $1000 is reasonable and about what I was thinking intuitively without an equation. I don't think 100 hrs is an unrealistic estimate--I know I spend a lot of time arranging and rearranging patterns and colors; everything I make is very bright and scrappy.....I don't think I'm a fast piecer either, kind of slow and steady like a diesel truck. ;o). I'm so grateful to get replies so fast! Cynthia
  3. Hi there: This is my first post. My long-armer suggested I ask this question here. I've been asked by someone to make them a quilt (or several) and I have no clue how much to charge. For the sake of discussion, let's assume the following: 1. finished quilt about 70" X 90" 2. difficulty level 2 out of 1-5 3. cost of materials say $200 4. what I will pay the longarmer say $150 (until I'm good enough to do it myself) 5. Labor? I'd say minimum 100 hours. How much do you think I should charge. Note that this person can pay any amount and is willing to pay any amount. I don't want to gouge him, but I'm not going to work for $1/hour either...... I'd love to hear some different opinions. Someone from Arkansas I know said she knows women who would do it for 500-600$, but I wouldn't do it for that price. Thanks, Cynthia
