Valuing a Quilt for Donations

Hi Everyone,

Maybe you can help me. Please do so if you can.

When I mail the two quilts (Dillon's Critters and Floral Rows) for the auction I have to include a value. This is what they will reference when sending the tax receipt and should be the value I could sell it for. What price should I use for each of the these quilts?

Dillon's Quilts - all fabric & batting from stash, including a charm pack (so only had to cut 4 of the squares)
40" X 40", machine pieced & quilted

Floral Rows - all fabric in top from stash, some pre-cut from other projects, including batting. Did have to buy backing/binding
about 40" X 48", machine pieced & quilted

So the question is, what do I value them at? I've never sold any of my quilts - My family, friends, and church family give me more than enough babies to quilt for, so I have no need (or time) to make quilts for sale.

I am not sure if they will allow for your 'time'. I have heard that it is materials only. IMHO- baby/child size are min. of $50-$100. Both of yours are lovely. cw

I would suggest checking out comparable quilts on etsy for a reasonable value.
