Pantograph/All-over/Edge to Edge Quilting

Pantographs are all-over (also called edge to edge) designs that I sew by following a pattern with a laser light. They will leave a nice texture on the quilt with a repeated design.

  • $0.02/square inch

Custom Quilting

  • Starts at $0.05/square inch
  • Minimum charge of $55

The Math

To figure out the price of quilting your quilt, measure the length and width in inches and multiply them, then multiply that number by the quilting price.

For example, here is a 60 inch x 45 inch quilt with a pantograph:

60″ x 45″ = 2700″ x $0.02 = $48.60

Batting

  • Pellon cotton: $10.40/yard or $0.003 per square inch
  • Hobbs 80/20 Blend (off-white): $10/yard or $0.0028 per square inch.
I sell batting by the actual size used (the quilt top plus about 3 inches on each side). This way you only pay for what you use on your quilt top, instead of that extra 20 inches or so at the bottom, and I have pieces I can put together for use in Comfort quilts.

Binding

I don’t even like to bind my own quilts, so I don’t offer binding services. My favorite binding tutorial is an old one from the Moda Bake Shop and can be found here:

Other Services

To piece backs: $10.00
Trimming: $5-$20 depending on size of quilt

Preparation

Before taking your quilt to any longarmer, I would recommend pressing the top well, squaring the backing fabric and also trimming any loose threads on the back side of the top, particularly if the quilt has any white fabrics – those threads will show through!
