To figure price by size:

Length x Width = ? X price/sq inch = Price

Levels are determined by stitch design density and thread usage required.

Price includes labor, cost of thread, needles, and machine maintenance.

 

Quilt Preparation and additional charges:

 

Backing - Backing fabric must be 6-10” larger than the quilt top. (Pieced, pressed and squared)

  • Backing must be pressed. I will piece and iron your backing for an additional charge depending on size of quilt (minimum $20.00)
  • Press quilt top (if quilt needs pressing, there will be a $10-$20 charge)
  • Remove all loose threads and please check your seams
  • Quilt top should be flat and squared. If it’s not flat and/or you have wavy borders, you may end up with puckers.
  • Do not pin, baste or mark quilt top
  • Quilting generally takes 4-8 weeks. Quilts are completed on a first come first serve basis. I will try to accommodate rush orders. Rush orders will have an additional $20 charge if time allows
  • Payment is due when quilt is completed.
