Please read and follow the Before the Quilt is Dropped Off
instructions and print and complete as much of the included Drop Off form as you can..Pricing:
2 cents per square inch for quilting, plus the cost of batting, and thread charges which are outlined below. $50 minimum quilting charge. How much will my quilt cost? Here is the formula. Multiply the length x the width to get your total square inches, multiply total square inches by 0.02 + batting cost + thread charge. Example for a 60" x 75" quilt top: 60 x 75 = 4500 x 0.02 = $90.00 + batting + thread.Thread charges:
Craft, crib, or lap = $5; twin or double = $8; queen = $10; king = $12.Things to remember:
- Batting and backing must be at least 6 inches bigger on EACH SIDE (12 inches longer and 12 inches wider) than your quilt top.
- Do not baste the quilt. It needs to be in 3 separate parts: top, batting, & backing.
- Press quilt top well, making sure that all seams have been pressed.
- Trim all loose threads.
