My base rate includes consultation, labor, quilting service, thread, and photography. I charge separately for batting.
Price per square inch
I charge 2.25 cents per square inch for most edge-to-edge designs. A dense pattern choice may result in a slightly higher per square inch price. We would talk about that before any quilting takes place.
For example, a quilt top that is 60 inches x 80 inches:
60 x 80 = 4800 x .0225 = $108.
My minimum quilting charge is $50. This means that a small quilt or table runner’s square inch price will be rounded up to the $50 minimum.
I use and stock my favorite Quilters Dream batting in the 80/20 cotton/poly blend and in 100% cotton in two lofts. Click here for more batting information.
I am happy to order other fiber varieties of Quilters Dream batting like Wool, Dream Orient or their Green option (made with recycled plastic) for you if given enough lead time.
Batting is a separate charge and is NOT included in the square inch price.
I stock Glide, Omni, and SoFine threads. The cost of thread is included in my per-inch price.
As for thread color, I let the choice of pantograph and quilt design inform my choice. I might match a light color in the background to enhance the texture of the quilt, or pick something more mid-range or contrasting to play up the pantograph design. Let me know if you have a preference on thread color.
Upon completion of the quilting, I will take photos of your quilt in my well-lit studio and then text/email you those images to use however you would like. I do ask that you credit me for the photo and/or quilting if posting publicly. This extra service is included in your square inch price.
Shipping your top and backing to me: I live in North Carolina, 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. 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.
After the work is complete, I will invoice you via email and you can pay in person with a check or via credit card in Square. I really do appreciate timely payments as that enables me to get your project(s) back to you right away.
