I hope you had a nice weekend!
Thought I would post some pictures of a quilt top I made a few months ago. It is made with all homespuns. I love all styles of fabrics from Moda, to brights, to reproductions, to homespuns...I love them all. The style of our home doesn't lend itself to some kinds of fabrics. To get out my urge to sew with all different styles, I started selling quilt tops on ebay about 4-5 years ago. I haven't put anything up for auction in a couple of years now...not sure why.
I was thinking about trying my hand at Etsy. Do you think in this economy, people would be willing to spend money on quilt tops? Have you sold anything or purchased anything on Etsy yourself? I am certainly not looking to make millions selling quilt tops. It's just another way for me to do what I love...buy fabric and sew quilt tops. It's a win-win situation for me and the buyer, because she may be the one who loves to quilt, not piece...or she needs a quick gift and the first part of the job is already done for her.
The center design of the quilt top above is called Bricks and Stepping Stones and it's a pattern from Quiltville. I had emailed Bonnie Hunter when I started the quilt top. I had asked her if I could sell quilt tops with some of her designs...she said I could use any pattern as long as I give her credit and that I don't mass produce them. I will definitely give her credit and she doesn't have to worry about the mass producing part. lol
Thanks for your help,
