So 10-14 points would be around 100-140 dollars? That's pretty crazy huh? What would a quilt be considered as? And XXLarge? I am very interested in this swap as I have 2 kids, ages 3 and 4 and love sewing for kids. I can't wait to sign up.

Well, consider that the money estimate is for what you would sell the item for, not how much you pay to make the item.  If I were going to sell a handmade quilt, it would probably be a couple hundred dollars, right?  I could sell a knitted hat or stuffed animal (depending on size/detail) for 15-50 bucks.  The sizes and dollar amounts are just guidelines... you don't have to spend 100 bucks on the swap!

Hi,

Sorry if I sound thick but could you give me an example of a small, medium and large item?  It would be my first swap.

Thank you!
