What would you charge for this quilt?

I am trying to make some extra cash now that hubby has been laid off. This is a quilt that I made as a gift but can and will make more of with what I have at home. It is crib size and machine done. It took about 10 hours from start to finish to make and has a very nice warm micro fleece backing. I am thinking maybe $50. Does this sound right? Would any of you pay that? Should it be more or less? I am also thinking of putting it up as a quilt I can personalize with a persons chosen colors...

I left a comment in your photos. I think you're short-changing yourself at $50. It's hand made, for pity's sake! People are paying for the convenience of not making it themselves, for the sturdiness of the material (often ready-made items are cheaper, but not as well-made), plus your design work! Time, quality & convenience? Charge a bit more than $5 an hour, Lady; respect your worth! Maggiepie "In art, economy is always beauty." ~ Henry James

The quilt sounds nice. I think that the price you are asking is a good one. That means you would make be making $5 an hour for the work you did. Is that worth it to you? You could offer to personalize it. I would take best offer and see where that puts you for any others you might make. See what people are willing to pay that way.
