Playdate Baby Quilt - First Low End Quilt for Etsy
I need your input today. I have just finished the first baby quilt which is not reversible (first time since I started quilting that I have finished a single sided quilt).
This quilt has a fleece backing in hot pink, which is lovely soft perfect for a baby.
The listing on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/listing/78850987/playdate-baby-quilt-with-fleece-backing
This is also the first low end quilt for Etsy. It took me a little less time to make, only about 10 days, than the other quilts and as I haven't actually sold a quilt yet I am trying to produce something cheap that I can sell for less than the other quilts.
So my question is
- Did you ever buy a quilt?
- Or do you own a quilt that you didn't make yourself?
- Do you own a quilt that somebody paid money for?
- What kind of quilt and how much did you/they pay for it?
If you don't want to tell online that's fine of course I am just trying to see what other people actually sell quilts for and whether mine are just too expensive (or maybe they're just not good enough to sell.)
It is hard to see on Etsy who actually sells a lot of quilts and what people want and what they are willing to pay for it. Unless I watch other shops really closely to notice when something gets listed and when it sells I just can't see that kind of thing. And often people sell quilts to friends and family and it isn't really any indication of what the market demands.
I would really appreciate your input.
Lots of love,
PS: Don't forget to enter the GIVEAWAY from the papercrafts shop. The winner will be drawn on Wednesday.
