Quilting Pricing

Machine Quilting - Pricing
Quilting that I provide is longarm freemotion, custom or allover quilting. I charge by the size of your quilt and how detailed the quilting is.

Pricing for quilting, it ranges from $0.01 cent per square inch to $0.075 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 $8.00)
  •  Allover design from edge to edge. $0.02 psi (Thread $8.00)
  •  Allover design with custom borders .02 psi plus $5.00 per border ( Thread $8.00)
Custom Quilts 
  •  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. $0.04 psi (Thread $10.00)
  • Custom Quilting includes ruler work, SID and elaborate secondary background designs $0.055 ( Thread $12.00)
  • Full Custom/Show Quilting includes ruler work, SID, elaborate secondary background designs, and buried stitches. $0.075 (Thread $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 
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 - $8.00 - $15.00 per quilt.

Batting 
I carry an 80/20 cotton/poly blend and 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
.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
  • I receive and return quilts through USPS. My address is PO Box 535, Decatur, AR 72722
  • If you attend the same quilt guild meetings as I do you may bring your quilt to me. I attend Q.U.I.L.T. and Modern of NWA. 
  • If you would like me to come to you. I have a combined pickup and return fee of $50.00. If you are getting the Full Custom this fee is waved.
Shipping - $15.00 - $20.00 which includes packaging, shipping cost and a tracking number. Insurance is extra depending on your preference.



    All quilts are quilted in the order that I receive them. A 1st come 1st serve system. Until I have your quilt in hand and $30 deposit there is no guarantee on the finished date. Most quilts will take 4-5 weeks
