My Current Art Quilt Dilemma
I dreamt it would happen, I waited for it to happen, I planned for it to happen, I was not ready when it happened. One of my quilts was hanging in our guild booth at a senior convention and a man approached the member with his business card and said to please give it to the owner of the art quilt as he wanted to purchase it.
I have contacted the individual and a price has been thrown out there, and now I am stuck. There is no way the price compares to the hours I sat beading the oak leaves in front of the tv. Or the time I spent designing it, or dyeing the fabric. But I do realize you never get paid for the love you put into a quilt.
Oh, I should mention it is my fall leaf quilt that won the president's challenge. Scroll back a bit if you don't remember.
I want to sell my quilts. I want to teach techniques. I want to contribute to our family income in a way I enjoy. But can I sell it now? I should also mention, I have stored it away as I have no where to hang it.
