Hi, Judy in Arkansas: While there are many vintage quilt collectors out there, most collectors want quilts that are in excellent condition. Of course, there are also those who like the worn look and use such quilts for display purposes in their home, etc. If a pattern is highly unusual, or has providence (history), that makes a vintage quilt more desireable. Quilts that date back to the mid-1800s, especially the Civil War era, are prized. I'm guessing this one dates to 1930-40. But I could be wrong.
This piece is interesting in that is has an attractive block pattern and the sashing is 'different'. I really do like that sashing and have made note of its construction. Readers can click on the photo to get a closer view.
There are many old worn-out quilts sold on eBay and they are generally listed as "cutter quilts" for the buyers will cut them up for primitive crafts. You can go to eBay and research prices on small pieces like this. Crafters might cut it for crafty items or frame it for a primitive wall hanging.
I don't have the time this morning but perhaps someone here could look up the pattern for you. That would add interest to a potential buyer, especially if you have a quilter friend who can list it on eBay. Barbara Brackman has a book that is helpful in identifying block patterns/names. Remember, though, with eBay, that they charge an upfront fee as well as a percentage of the sale price, so when all is said and done you will pay eBay approx 3-5 percent (I could be off on this) of your final sale. I think it would be better to sell it personally at home or to some reader here. Listing is a hassle because you have to take photos, upload the photos, write your description, etc. It's very time consuming.
It is good that you have not just tossed this in the garbage. Don't expect a high price. But perhaps you can find someone willing to give you a small amount that will help your quilt group buy thread, fabric, or whatever. Or perhaps you can even find a quilter who will swap you with new fabric from their stash for old quilt piece. I'm not an appraiser so will not give you an "official appraisal" but it would surprise me if it fetched more than $20. If someone here disagrees with that, I certainly won't be offended if they so state. LOL.
But thanks for sharing. If nothing else, I got a wonderful sashing idea from your photo! I missed seeing it at first because I was looking at the block itself. But take a second look at the construction of the sashing and its visual effect. It's very attractive.
