Edge to Edge quilting is a single cohesive design applied to the entire quilt top. I love Free-motion Edge to Edge quilting which allows for artisanal quilting and completely unique to your quilt top. There are hundreds of computerized designs also available to finish your quilt with. I can quilt just about anything you like. I have a library of designs and have many free-motion designs to use.
3 cents a sq inch includes top and bottom thread.
This is a semi-custom style. Generally inside the borders is an Edge to Edge design and the borders are finished in a complementary design. There are many examples of this style and design will depend of the quilt top.
Custom quilting is not Edge to Edge. This can be very dense quilting to medium density with many designs. Custom quilts are billed hourly, but range from 0.07 to 0.16 per sq in. As ballpark estimates are given, the final invoice is calculated by the hours needed to complete this project. Custom quilting require many different motifs, template work, ruler work, stitch in the ditch, thread changes, multiple stops and starts, pattern marking and in some cases custom pattern design.
Calculate your square inch dimensions, you must first find your tape measure. Lay your top flat and measure one long side and one short side in inches. Multiply those measurements together to get your over all inches squared of your top. Then multiply your square inches with the type of quilting you choose. Example: A quilt is 60 x 75. 50x60 = 4500 square inches x 0.03 for Edge to Edge. Therefore the charge is $135.00 (Canadian Dollars) before tax. $50. minimum cost.
I use and keep in stock Hobbs 80/20 in white and natural. I currently have black available while stock lasts. Batting is a separate charge and not included in the per sq inch quilting price. I charge by the linear inch and will do my best to ensure I only cut and charge what is needed for your quilt. Please note that I require and extra 4 inches all the way around for quilting. As batting prices fluctuate, pricing is available at the time a quilt is booked in for quilting.
I like to use Glide 40 wt thread. I like to blend the thread colour into your top. If you would like to use a bolder thread choice just let me know. I DO NOT charge for thread or bobbins as this is included with the per square inch pricing for your quilting.
I have a library of computerized designs available and free-motion designs that work perfectly for Edge to Edge designs. However, if there is a design that you love, that I do not have, I will invoice an additional $10 towards the purchase of the design. Most designs range 20 to 25 dollars to purchase. One great websites to look at is Urban Elementz.
Free Trimming at edge of the top or 1/4 inch from edge available as per intake form. Prepared binding added to the front of quilt - 10 cents per linear inch. Please note customer still needs to attach to the back.
