Square Inch Price
I charge 2.5 cents per square inch for all *standard edge-to-edge designs.
Example: A quilt top is 60 inches x 80 inches. 60 x 80 = 4800 x .025 = $120
*A standard design means that there will be no space larger than approximately 4 inches without stitching. If you would like your stitching to be more dense, there is an additional 1 cent per inch charge (depending on the level of density desired). Please contact me for more info.
My minimum quilting charge is $50 for standard edge-to-edge quilting. This means that a small quilt or table runner's square inch price will be rounded up to the $50 minimum.
I also offer semi-custom quilting, such as borders or featured squares with a different panto design, at an additional charge. This can range from 4 to 5 cents per square inch, depending on the level of customization. If different thread colors are desired, there is an additional charge of $10 per color change.
I use and stock my favorite battings in 80/20 cotton/poly blend and in 100% cotton. I have limited quantities of poly and wool batting in stock---please ask for availability.
Batting is a separate charge and is NOT included in the square inch price.
I charge for batting by the linear inch of batting, except in the case of special orders. I will use only what is needed for your quilt (smallest side + a 5" margin) and charge per inch.
For example, if you have a 60" x 80" quilt, I would cut 65" of the batting of your choice.
65" of 100% cotton batting @ $0.25/in = $16.25
65" of 80/20 cotton/poly blend @ $0.29/in = $18.85
I do not charge any extra fees for thread use, it's included in your square inch price.
My personal style attempts to match or blend thread color with the majority of colors in your quilt. But this is YOUR quilt! Let me know if you have a preference on thread color.
I'm not a professional photographer but I do my best to take "nice" photos of your quilt. Upon completion of the quilting, I will take photos of your quilt in my studio and will then text/email you those images to use however you would like. I'd just ask that you credit me for the photo and/or quilting if posting publicly.
Shipping your top and backing to me: I live in Minnesota, USA, and would be happy to receive your top and backing by mail. I'd recommend sending your materials enclosed in some kind of sack or 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.
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 but 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. I'm required by the State of Minnesota to collect a 7.375% sales tax on the quilting service portion of an invoice. Batting, shipping, and any design/pantograph fees are not subject to sales tax if outside the state of Minnesota.
After the work is complete, I will invoice you via PayPal or Venmo. I really do appreciate timely payments as that enables me to mail your project(s) back to you right away.
I look forward to helping you finish your quilting projects!
