Costs are calculated via my Quilt Price Calculator: Factors are the size & pieces as mentioned above and the presets for a twin quilt. I did set the batting to 0 Euro because it was ordered at the longarmer. And I addet those costs of 180 Euro to the extras.
In my opinion the normal theory of factor 2 and factor 3 sales prices does not apply here, because I “subcontracted” the quilting part. That theory accounts for the piecing AND quilting work. So in this case, I’d guess a better sales estimate for this quilt would be the factor 2.
