Quilting Services

EDGE TO EDGE QUILTING (E2E) 

  • An E2E design is quilted continuously across the entire quilt.  The design crosses the piecing and unifies the quilt with one color thread and one repeated pattern, creating a beautiful, budget-friendly quilt.
  • Cost typically ranges from $.02 to $.04 per square inch, however more expensive designs are available if desired.  The price is based upon the complexity of the design and whether the quilting is tighter or more open.  Whether computerized or free motion, all quilting designs are available in any size you want.  The least expensive E2E quilting is $.02 per square inch.

CUSTOM QUILTING 

  • Can be free motion, computerized or a combination of both.  It includes all special quilting treatments --  anything other than 100% E2E quilting.
  • Cost for custom quilting is $40 an hour.  Time is tracked carefully and accurately.  Custom quilting can be done within the customer’s budget.  Not all custom quilting is expensive and can actually cost less than complicated E2E designs.

TO CALCULATE AN ESTIMATE 

  • For edge to edge quilting, multiply the length of the quilt top times the width. Then multiply that number by the price per square inch.  Example:   90 x 75 = 6750.  Then  6750 x .02 = $135 at 2¢ per square inch for E2E.
  • For a more detailed estimate, please call or email me and I’ll be happy to assist you or we can make an appointment and discuss quilting options for your quilt.
