Basting for hand quilting:
.01/square inch. Minimum charge $60.00; This is basting 4" in a grid.
Edge to Edge quilting
I have many patterns available for you to finish your quilt. Price for most edge-2-edge is 3 cents per square inch. Minimum charge $75.00.
I do have 4 patterns for economy quilting. Click HERE for more information on that special pricing.
Do you want a special border around an Edge to Edge design? For only a penny extra per square inch, this makes your quilt look particularly nice at a price less than a custom. My price for your choice of border and Edge to Edge is 4 cents per square inch - again, the minimum charge is $75.00.
Full Custom quilting
12 1/2 cents per sq. in. This includes stitch-in-the-ditch, background fill, feathers, sashing designs, multiple border patterns, individual blocks patterns, ruler work and cross hatching. $75 minimum.
Show or Heirloom Quilting
Show quilting is for quilts that will be entered into shows and quilts destined to be family treasures. This category includes exclusive designs for your quilt, trapunto, and anything else you desire. Special attention will be paid to technically fine quilting. All threads will be buried and the quilt will be blocked upon completion. I will be happy to consult with you on the final estimate of your creation. Just give me a call and we'll get your project started.
I like to use Glide polyester thread. It has a great sheen in quilted projects and is very strong with minimal breakings or lint in the machine. If you want Variegated threads, such as King Tut or specialized threads, I'd be happy to get those for you but they may cost extra. If you'd like to have one colour on the top and another on the bottom, there will be a charge added of $10.00 to the job.
Additional costs to meet the needs of your quilt may also include batting, backing, binding and thread. Canadian Sales Tax (GST) of 5% will be added to the final amount of your invoice.
(Please see Frequently Asked Questions about Top Preparation)
If you require pressing, trimming threads on your quilt top or repairs to the top, I charge $18.50/hour.
