–Our minimum charges begin at $45.00.
–We have over 65 different thread colors to choose from. We use only the highest quality. Our preference is Omni threads from Superior Thread Company.
–Cost is based on square inches of your quilt top which is measured during your appointment. Patterns are edge-to-edge patterns and range from one (1) penny, to five (5) cents per-square-inch.
Examples of Cost
~ A lap-sized quilt top measuring approximately 60” x 75” = 4500 square inches = $65.00 + sales tax using a Pennypattern. ( 1cent per sq. inch)
~ Same quilt size (4500 sq. inches) at 1 ½ cents per sq. inch = $97.00 + sales tax.
~ Same quilt size (4500 sq. inches) at 2 cents per sq. inch = $130.00 = sales tax.
Another example is a queen-sized top measuring approx. 85” x 100” = 8500 sq. inches = $135.00 + sales tax using a Pennypattern. (1 cent per sq. inch)
~Same quilt size (8500 sq. inches) at 1 ½ cents per sq. inch = $177..50 + sales tax.
~Same quilt size (8500 sq. inches) at 2 cents per sq. inch= $220.00 + sales tax.
NOTE: All prices include the price-per-square inch plus loading fee.
–That said, vintage quilt tops (old quilt tops) are automatically charged an extra $40.00 to $60.00 on top of the quilting charges. Why? Because they almost always have more issues and take much longer to quilt.
–Binding services are available. Price is 10 cents or 20 cents per running inch.
–We press all tops and backings, but it’s a good idea to bring both to us fairly smooth of wrinkles.
–Piecing of your backing fabric is available. Cost ranges from $20.00 to $60.00, depending on size.
–Basting service—Basting is available for $.005 cents per square inch with a minimum charge of $25.00. (This is normally something we do for handquilters of large quilts.)
–Please keep your backing fabric and batting separate from your quilt top. DO NOT baste or pin together.
