A Few of My Favorite Things
A nice 1st place ribbon for each of my quilts entered at the recent Treasures of Tomorrow quilt show, Marshfield, WI.
This show is an annual tradition for me. I've entered and attended with my friend Jan for the past 20 years (rough estimate).
There were lots of interesting and lovely quilts to view this year, and some great vendors. Every show I attend gives me some kind of inspiration.
But lately I've been struggling with the "too many quilts getting in my way" syndrome. It's keeping me from plunging right into a new quilt since finishing Moonlight Migration.
I have never sold any of my quilts but am now changing my way of thinking; some of them can certainly move on to other homes.
My quilt Cottage Garden is listed on The Quilt Broker for sale.
Another, I gave to a friend in exchange for deck repair and rebuilding. I'm also thinking about eBay and Etsy as possible sites to explore.
While I realize I will never recoup my time and costs involved in making my quilts, I have no reason to just keep them. They will be priced to sell.
How about you? Do any of you sell your handmade quilts an if so where? Do you donate them to charity, give them to family and friends?
I'll keep you posted as I list quilts for sale.
On that note, while out walking this morning, a new quilt idea popped in my head. I shall keep you posted on that too.
