Current pricing for quilts received after 1/1/2016
I charge by the square inch. To find the price for the quilting, measure your quilt's length and width in inches and follow this model:
Length x Width x Rate.
Example: 90 x 70 x .02 = 126.00

All over meander: .0175/sq. inch (Minimum: $30)
Edge to Edge meander (LARGE puzzle piece meandering) only
Edge to Edge Pantograph: .02-.025/sq. inch .(Min. $40)
All pantographs are done on a computerized machine. There are hundreds of patterns available for almost every theme or look you want to accomplish. Sometimes pantographs have to be done by hand (if you have applique/pictures) to go around. Any pantographs done by hand fall under a different wait time and pricing than computerized designs. Pricing is determined by density of design.
Pantograph with Custom Borders: .025-.03/sq. inch (min $50)
pantograph designs are limited to patterns that will fit accordingly. Pricing is determined on the number of borders and density of design.
Custom: Starts at .04 sq. inch (Min. $65)
Block design, stenciling, crosshatching, stitch in the ditch, feathering etc. My freehand custom work consists of quilting designs customized for your quilt. We also have many computerized motifs and borders to choose from to match your themes. Pricing is determined by density of quilting.
Applique: starts at .0475/sq. inch Min ($75)
Outline applique and custom work around it.
call to discuss- I only accept 3 heirloom pieces per year and this kind of heavy quilting is reserved for already existing clients
*Note: To help save money on minimum quilting costs, I give a small discount if you keep more than one quilt on the same backing. This works for table runners and wall hanging type of quilts only.
I carry Hobbs heirloom 80/20 at $8.00/yd. or Warm and Natural 100% cotton for $10/yd. I only charge for what is used on the quilt.
Thread is included in the price of the quilting. Extra charges may apply with specialty threads used on the backing
$10 per seam.
DO NOT USE SHEETS AS BACKING
I only accept Minkee for backing under certain circumstances. Please call to discuss when using Minkee.
Pressing: I rarely need to press quilts or backings but if your quilt comes to me balled up and wrinkled, it will cost you $15 :)
Trimming: $10 By request only. I typically trim to the edge of the quilt top. If you like to turn extra into the binding for fullness, please specify how close you would like the backing and batting trimmed.
Binding: I charge by the linear inch. I only do straight edge binding with mitered corners. I machine stitch to the top and handsew to the backing. If you would like your binding cut on the bias, please let me know ahead of time.
To find the price for binding, follow this model: Length+ Width x 2 x rate (ex. 72 + 92 x 2 x .18 = 59)
