Quilting Pricing

Machine Quilting - Pricing
Quilting that I provide is longarm free motion quilting which includes allover, minimal custom up to full custom. I charge by the size of your quilt and how detailed the quilting is.

Pricing for quilting and thread, it ranges from $0.01 cent per square inch to $0.09 per square inch.

(I have a $50.00 minimum charge for loading and quilting, this does not include thread or batting.)
  •  Charity quilts are quilted with an allover quilting design. $0.01 cents per inch (Thread included)
  •  Allover design from edge to edge. $.02 psi (Thread fee $8.00)
  •  Allover design with custom borders $.02 psi plus $5.00 per border (Thread fee $8.00)
  • Minimal Custom Quilting Best Deal!!! This quilting will make your quilt shine with minimal SID and quilting that works your piecing to make it pop. $0.03 psi (Thread fee $8.00)
  •  Mid Custom Quilting includes some ruler work, SID (stitch in the ditches) and background designs.  This type of quilting will personalize your quilt and keep the cost down. $0.045 psi (Thread fee $10.00)
  • Custom Quilting includes ruler work, SID and elaborate secondary background designs $0.07 (Thread fee $15.00)
  • Full Custom/Show Quilting includes ruler work, SID, elaborate secondary background designs, and buried stitches. $0.09  (Thread fee $15.00)
How do I figure out the pricing of my quilt?
Example: Length x Width = Square Inches of your quilt
  1. If your quilt is an average size Lap quilt which measures 54"x 72", multiply 
  2. Your total is 3,888 square inches 
  3. Multiply 3,888 x 0.02 = 77.76
Border work on Allover quilts
If you desire your border to have a different design from the center of your quilt a charge of $5.00 per border. This is included for free on full custom quilts and up.

Thread - Thread will cost between $8.00-$15.00 depending on the quilting that you choose.

I carry an 80/20 cotton/poly blend or Wool. 
-80/20 Cotton/Poly blend $0.25 per inch on the short side of your quilt.
-Wool by Quilters Dream $0.55 per inch on the short side of your quilt.
I can order a different batting this will add at least 2 weeks more to complete your quilt.
Depending on the type of batting for a special order will run $9.00 - $20.00 a yard
Black batting is recommended for quilts with a dark backing fabric.

Backing Piecing $10.00 - $30.00 depending on how much piecing is needed

Binding - Machine Binding is offered - overpriced because I don't want to do it.
.015 cents per inch which includes cutting, folding and applying binding to the front of the quilt. Then you can complete the binding with hand sewing or I can complete sewing the binding on for an extra charge of $15.00. You must provide at least a yard of fabric for the binding, I will prep the binding for you, any fabric that is leftover will be sent back to you. I can apply the binding.
Example for Binding:
  1. Length + Width x 2 = Binding Length
  2. Lap Quilt 54 + 72 x 2 = 198
  3. 198 x $0.15 = $29.70
  4. Round to $30.00
Sending and Receiving in your quilt
  • Sending your quilt by mail is the fastest way and cost less. 
  • Free return shipping if you purchase batting through me.
  • I receive and return quilts through USPS. My address is PO Box 535, Decatur, AR 72722
  • If you live near NW Arkansas, I can meet you at a nearby library or your home for a $20.00 pick up fee. I will mail it back to you and charge you for shipping unless you buy batting trough me then return shipping will be free. 
  • If you decide to mail your quilt. I suggest that you place all items in a plastic bag to protect while in transit. I usually receive quilts within 2 days of being sent and will contact you as soon as I receive your quilt.
  • $15.00 - $20.00 which includes packaging, shipping cost and a tracking number.
  •  Insurance is extra depending on your preference.
  • Return Shipping can be free if you purchase batting through me.

    All quilts are quilted in the order that I receive them. A 1st come 1st serve system. Until I have your quilt in hand there is no guarantee on the finished date. Most quilts will take 4-5 weeks
