That is beautiful work, and way too cheap! I know whereof I speak, my first wife was a quilter. I lived for years working my away around a quilting frame in the living room, sometimes two!

"But my fingers hurt!"

"What's that dear? Your fingers hurt?... Well now your back's gonna hurt... cuz you just pulled landscaping duty..."

Seriously tho... beautiful work... and I'm with Geoff.... waaaay too cheap. People around my area pay double those prices for similar work.

 

kinda diggin the headboard too!!

Bill... when my wife says make the bed I say "I did"! 15 years ago our water bed died, I coulnt afford a bed , but then I saw my neighbors throwing out a king size matress and box . I built the bed to use the thown away mattress! Posts are stacking cribs that steel plate is shipped on. Head board is just pine 1x10s.

Very Cool and as others stated Very cheep even for here in Tennessee where folks still make them just as y'all do that would be round 250 to 300 and higher if 100 % done by hand as folks now days tend to machine stitch the batten and bottoms together .

That is indeed a fine quilt, but I'm sure you'll forgive me if I'm more fond of the one my grandma made me out of cuts from all the jeans I played sweated and bled into through my childhood. It's not just a quilt, it's my history ^_^

It is a Beautiful Quilt and I agree Kip still cheap However when I was in the Sand Box in the East I got one sown by a few ladies and really enjoyed it as it did/does get in the low 20's many times at night over there.
