Longarm Quilting

Longarm Quilting Pricing:

Prices are based on the size of your quilt and complexity of the pattern.

We charge by the square inch. To figure the square inch of your quilt top, measure the width and the length and multiple them together. This will give you the total square inches of your quilt. Then multiple the total square inches by the type of quilting you request. Example: A quilt which measures 60 X 72 = 4320 square inches X .02 (2 cents per square inch) = $86.40.

We charge by the square inch in 3 different categories.

  1.   Edge to Edge  -this is a simple edge to edge design, with good coverage. You can refer to our Ordering page, under quilting patterns for some examples. The standard patterns are all offered at the 2 cents per square inch price.

  2.   Premium Patterns- these are more dense patterns and cost 3 cents per square inch. Again, please refer the quilting patterns above- but refer to the premium patterns for examples. I can always add more patterns upon request.    


There is a minimum charge of $40 for any longarm quilting project.

Quilt top preparation:

To assure a quality finished product and minimize your cost, please follow these basic guidelines:

  • Your top must be clean, pressed well making sure all seams are pressed flat, points and threads clipped and removed or they may show through later, Please remove pins or basting threads.

  • Make sure the quilt top is pressed and lays flat to prevent puckering.

  • Square-up and trim quilt top to its final size—measuring the same amount in 3 places in both directions.

  • Measure and press backing fabric —it should measure 6-8 inches larger and wider than your top.


Pressing quilt top or backing – $10.00 (We typically do not iron the backing unless it’s wrinkled and is needed)

Piecing backing fabric - $20.00 per hour. This typically takes less than an hour.


Batting –

Quality batting is available and can be purchased from us. We offer an  80/20- 80(cotton) 20(polyester), Hobbs batting. You are also welcome to provide your own batting.

Hobbs  80/20 (80% cotton & 20% polyester)  @ $ 8.00 per yard     (batting is 90 inches wide)                       



Backing –

Most people provide the backing for us, however if you do not have backing available we can provide a backing to compliment your quilt top.  We offer Kona  100% cotton solids in a range of colors. Backing is available at $5.00 per yard.

Your backing needs to be 8 inches wider and 8 inches longer than your quilt top. There is an additional charge for seaming the back and ironing or other work needed before quilting.


Binding                -

We also provide Binding services at 2 different levels.

   1. You provide the binding fabric; we make the binding and machine sew on the front with mitered corners for 10 cents per linear inch.
