About Quilt Pricing

by Charlotte Colmon

calculatorThanks to everyone who responded to my first couple of emails in a while with a resounding “YES! Keep me on your mailing list. It's great to know there are so many wonderful quilters out there who want me to keep (or really re-start) doing what I'm doing here at the Quilting Business website.  And if you haven't participated in the poll yet, there's still time to let me know what you'd like to see on the site over the coming months by going to the poll.

As it turns out, one of the more common questions that keeps coming back again and again is about pricing your quilts.  With pricing, there are a number of different methods that can be employed, but the bottom line is that you want (really need) to get paid for your time and effort and expertise.  A special-made quilt is not an assembly-line product that conforms to simple volume pricing models.  Your quilts are more in line with art than with any type of mass-produced widget.

I have a number of articles on this site that deal with quilt pricing.  Please take a look at these articles:

In addition, I've added a search function to the website so you can search the past posts for the information you are seeking.  There's a lot of good info on the site, so feel free to check it out!

I'll be pulling together a Quilt Pricing Calculator spreadsheet over the next day or two so you can plug in some figures and come up with a reasonable price for your quilts!

Stay tuned,
