$.012 per square inch. (A 100" x 100" quilt would cost $120.00 to quilt.)
Non-custom, edge-to-edge designs on the quilt:
$0.015 per square inch. (A 100" x 100" quilt would cost $150.00 to quilt.) This price includes pantographs and designs that flow from edge to edge, such as Baptist fans, all over grid hatching (but not stitching in the ditch), meandering, etc.
Add a little more to your quilt -- perhaps a design incorporated into a center medallion or border. $0.02 per square inch.
Fancier yet. Feathered hearts, feathered borders, basic background fills, a thread color change, etc. $0.025 per square inch.
This quilt will receive a lot of attention. Each block will have its own custom design, using rulers and specially shaped pantographs. The work is intricate and will take longer. $0.03 per square inch.
Show Quilts -- Extreme Custom
And then there is Extreme Custom. These go above and beyond, with dense quilting designs throughout, using careful marking, templates, rulers, etc. It can cost anywhere from $0.10 - $0.30 per square inch, and will depend entirely on how long it takes. Very detailed quilts can take hundreds of hours.
There is a minimum charge of $40.00 for all quilting.
There is a separate charge for batting.
ThreadI generally use Superior Threads® -- King Tut® cotton, So Fine® polyester, and Bottom Line® polyester. I also use Signature. Threads are available in a variety of solid and variegated colors.
BindingsTo sew the binding on your quilt, I charge 12¢ per linear inch. It will be sewn by machine, first to the top, then pulled around to the back. I will stitch in the ditch, so the stitching will be mostly invisible on top, with a narrow top-stitching on the back. A 100" x 100" quilt binding would cost $48.00.
If you want a decorative embroidered stitch on the top, such as the feather stitch, it will be 20¢ per linear inch. 100" x 100" feather-stitched quilt binding would cost $80.00.
Squaring, Backing, Pressing, Piecing
If I fix seams that are coming apart, square your backing, piece your backing or batting, or press serious wrinkles out of your quilt top or backing, I will charge $10.00 per hour ($5.00 per half-hour, $2.50 for 15 minutes).
This price will also apply to itemized sewing that I do not have listed.
PAYMENTI accept internet/mail order quilting. Shipping is at customer’s expense.
50% of payment is required when you ship your quilt (not required for local quilts) and the balance will be due when the quilt is completed. If I am making your quilt for you, and I am purchasing the fabric for you, cost of fabric must be paid immediately.
Please call or e-mail if you are shipping your quilt. Place your quilt in a clear plastic bag and a sturdy box for shipping.
I reserve the right to refuse any quilt.
