Pricing

 

 

1. Calculate the area of your quilt

Multiply length x width in inches. (Ex. a twin quilt measuring 72″ x 90″ is 6,480 square inches)

 

 

 

2. Multiply the area of your quilt by the price per square inch

(Ex. for basic edge to edge quilting it would be $.015/sq. inch or 6480 x $.015 = $97.20 for a twin quilt)

 

Pricing varies depending on the complexity or density of the quilting pattern chosen.

4. Add optional batting charges

Feel free to bring your own batting or you can purchase mine.  I usually use the shortest side of the quilt to measure out batting.  So it is safe to assume you will use this much batting.  (ie if your quilt is 92X70, I would cut 75 (five extra for quilting)  inches of batting.  75/36 =  2.08yds.   I return all extra batting and backing to the customer.

6 oz 100% Bamboo ...$14.99/yd

Quilters Dream 80/20 Blend... $10.99/yd

Quilters Dream 100% Wool..... $14.99/yd

5. Add optional binding charges

 

To calculate binding you need to find the linear inches. Just add all 4 sides together and multiply that number by the price.  You will need to provide the fabric for binding.  To find out how much fabric you need for your quilt, follow this formula. 

(Width of quilt x 2) plus (Length of quilt x 2) plus (15"extra) = Total inches needed

(Total inches needed) divided into (  the width of fabric you are going to use for your binding. most are 42")

Lets say your quilt is 80"X 90"

160" + 180" + 15" = 355"

355"' / 42" 

8.45 total strips 

Binding is cut 2.5" 

We round the 8.45" to 9" 

9"x 2.5" = 22.5" - the total yardage you need to send for the binding on a quilt size 80 X 90.  

If this is too confusing, just send a yard to be safe and all excess will be sent back to you!  

Option 1 ......   $.15/inch  Includes trimming the quilt, making the binding, and machine sewing it to the top for the customer to hand sew later.

Option 2 ......  $.25/linear inch includes trimming the quilt, making the binding, and machine sewing it completely on the quilt. 

There is a $45 minimum charge on Machine binding. 

 

 

6. Add cost of extra services and surcharges

 

Ironing (only upon request) ...............................................  $35.00/hr

Piecing the back of the quilt ...............................................  $10.00 per seam

Ric rac fee ...........................................................................  $5.00 and up

This fee is for lot of ric rac that needs to be

tacked down or quilting on, it is a lot of extra

work to do this. It can sometimes double the

time it takes to finish a quilt.
