Long-Arm Quilting Pricing
Our long-arm quilting services are performed on a state of the art, computerized long arm quilting machine. We are able to accommodate a 120×120 quilt for edge to edge quilting.
If you have researched long-arm quilting pricing, you probably have come across some long, convoluted pricing structures. To be honest, I just don’t have time for all that – I would rather be quilting! Because of this, I provide some basic styles and simple pricing. My quilting services are geared at folks like me – those who love to quilt and want a beautiful, functional finished product and don’t go overboard.
With this in mind, while I can and do provide full custom quilting, the majority of quilts I do are edge to edge and all over designs. Custom quilting is quoted on a case-by-case basis.
Also, I do not square quilts – each quilt (and backing) should be squared prior to sending it in.
Minimum Charge $30.00
Minimum charges help to offset the cost of setup and materials
All-Over Meander or Ditch $.015 per square inch
This is a large all-over meander stippling design that secures your work without detracting from your piecing or fabric choices. If you choose stitch in ditch, the pricing is the same. For tight piecing, not all seams will be stitched.
Edge to Edge Quilting $.016 to .020 per square inch
Most edge to edge quilting patterns are .016 per square inch; however, we reserve the right to charge more for very dense patterns.
Thread Charge $.0
I do not charge extra for thread; however, insist on two things The thread color on top is the same as the bottom (there are some exceptions to this rule) and Only Superior Thread be used. This is because I know which thread works best in my machine and I don’t dink around using others and risk poor results.
Custom Quilting $.30 and up
Custom quilting is charged at square inch and hourly rates, depending on the project.
Binding $.30 per linear inch
(2XL + 2XW) – this is for machine sewing to the front and hand sewing down to the back **you provide the prepared binding fabric.
Quilt Preparation $10.00 minimum
For an additional fee we will check seams, press and trim threads. This charge depends on the size of the quilt.
Batting $.025 per linear inch off the roll
Hobbs 80/20 batting is provided at 90" width
Sample Pricing Example:
78″x87″ quilt = 6,786 square inches x .016 for edge to edge quilting = $108.58
156 + 174 = 330 linear inches x .30 for binding = $99.00
Batting (add 6″ total) 84″ x $.025 = $21.00
TOTAL quilting, batting and binding (tax and shipping not included = $228.58
The prices above are for quilts that come to me ready to quilt and will not require additional preparation to begin the process. If I find that a quilt is very wonky, has excessive threads, open seams or is otherwise unfit to quilt, I will contact you and we can discuss what can be done to provide the beautiful finished product you expect. I will never, ever take it upon myself to work on your quilt without your permission.
