Square Inch Price
Edge-to-Edge Designs: 2 cents per square inch
Example: A quilt top is 60 inches x 80 inches. 60 x 80 = 4800 x .02 = $96.00.
Semi-Custom: 3.5 cents per square inch. Semi-Custom is one edge-to-edge design in the top center plus one border design. From the example above, that would be 60 x 80 = 4800 x .035 = $168.00.
Custom Quilting: 4 to 8 cents per square inch. The actual price will be determined after consultation with you. The picture to the right is an example of custom quilting.
There is a minimum quilting charge of $50. This means that a small quilt or table runner's square inch price will be rounded up to the $50 minimum.
Batting is a separate charge and is NOT included in the square inch quilting price.
Currently stocked batting include: Hobbs 80/20 cotton/poly, Hobbs 100% Bleached Cotton; and Hobbs Heirloom Wool. Additionally, any Quilters Dream batting can be special ordered.
The batting charge is by the square inch. For example, if you have a 60" x 80" quilt:
4800" of Hobbs 80/20 cotton poly @ $.004 = $19.20
4800" of Hobbs 100% bleached cotton @ $.004 = $19.20
4800" of Quilters Dream Bamboo @ $.005 = $24.00
4800" of Hobbs Heirloom Wool @ $.006 = $28.80
I stock 40 wt. Glide thread which is a trilobal polyester with a sheen and Innovatech which is also 40 wt. polyester with a matte finish. I find this thread gives excellent results. However, I have used other threads successfully and am open to discussing your preferences and am willing to order what I don't have in stock. There is a $7.00 flat fee for thread.
I can prepare binding strips and attached them to your quilt. However, please note that all binding work is done by machine. Specifically, I do NOT sew bindings to the back by hand. When I sew the binding to the back, I will "stitch in the binding ditch" from the front and there will be a visible line of stitching on the binding on the back. I will attached binding to the front of the quilt with mitered corners for $ .30 per linear inch or completely sew the binding to the front and back for $ .50 per linear inch.
If you want me to prepare and attach your binding, add that to the booking form, and I will calculate how much fabric you need to send to me to create the binding.
I'm not a professional photographer but I do my best to take "nice" photos of your finished quilt. Upon completion, I will text or email those images for you to use however you would like. I'd just ask that you credit me for the photo and/or quilting if posting publicly. This extra service is included in your square inch price.
I live in Orlando, Florida and would be happy to receive your top and backing by mail. I'd recommend sending your materials enclosed in a plastic bag to protect against possible moisture in transit and then placed in a hard-sided cardboard box. Make sure the box is securely taped and labeled clearly. If you are local, I will be happy to arrange a meeting place to accept your quilt.
Return shipping: I will send your quilt back to you in the manner described above via USPS Priority mail (using flat rate when possible/economical). Priority mail comes with $50 of insurance and a tracking number. Please indicate on your intake form if you would like me to buy any additional insurance on your behalf. It's a great idea to insure your valuables against loss or damage while with the Postal Service, but I don't require it.
As mentioned above, batting is not included in the square inch price. Batting costs will be subject to sales tax of 6.5% if you are in the state of Florida.
After the work is complete, a PayPal invoice will be sent to you. If you are local, you will still receive a PayPal invoice, but you may pay by cash or check if you prefer.
I really do appreciate timely payments as that enables me to mail your project(s) back to you right away.
