Services and Pricing

Quilting Charges


Quilting charges are based on the number of square inches in your quilt and the complexity and density of the quilting design.

To determine square inches measure your quilt from edge to edge along the width and length of the quilt then multiply the two dimensions.

[Length ___ x Width ___ = Total Square Inches ___]

To approximate quilting charges multiply the number of square inches by the fee for the chosen quilting technique.

[Total Square Inches ___ x Fee ___ = Approx. Cost of Quilting ___]


$0.015 per square inch. Basting consists of loose stitching in about a 5" grid or large meander to secure the top, batting, and backing. It's used to prepare a quilt for hand quilters and domestic machine quilters, and takes the place of safety pins (the quilt is much lighter and easier to work on than a pinned quilt). Minimum charge is $50 per quilt.

Edge to Edge

$0.0225 per square inch. Edge to edge designs are chosen to complement the quilt top and to hold it together securely. MANY designs are available. See our Pinterest page for a sampling of the designs we offer. This is a beautiful and economical way to finish your quilt and offers the convenience of a quick turnaround time. Minimum charge is $50 per quilt.

Simple Custom

$0.06 per square inch. Simple custom could include an all-over design for the center of a quilt with a separate border design or simple repeated block designs. Stitch in the ditch between quilt body and outer border is included. This option is especially useful for quilts with special inner borders like flanges or piping that shouldn't be quilted over. It also adds a beautiful accent to a simple outside border by giving it its own design. Minimum charge is $100 per quilt.

Full Custom

$0.12 per square inch. Full custom quilting places specific designs in each block/area of your quilt and could include feathering, individual motifs, separate border and sashing designs, stitch in the ditch, cross-hatching, and background fills. This is the service to choose for those special heirloom projects that won't be heavily used - Perhaps for wall quilts or applique quilts or anything that you would consider quilting by hand. This would be great for a keepsake baby quilt, but not for one you want to be used and washed again and again. The designs are carefully chosen to fit the quilt and the occasion. Minimum charge is $150 per quilt.

Quilters Dream Poly Batting

This batting is an exclusive blend of the new fine Microfibers (very fine denier, high quality polyester fibers).  It has lovely drape and comfort, as well as breathability.  Needlepunched like Dream Cotton along with the use of the finest microfibers eliminates the need for resins, glue or plastic scrims as stabilizers.  Like natural fibers, this soft fine denier resists bearding, and is warm, yet breathable and resists bunching and shifting.

Quilters Dream 80/20 Batting
