SQUARE INCH PRICE
I charge 3 cents per square inch for most of my designs.
For example: A quilt measures 60" x 80"
60 x 80 = 4,800 x .03 = $144 (plus GST)
I do offer some value options at 2.5c and a few of the more complex designs are 3.5c.
My minimum quilting charge is $60. This means that a small quilt or table runner's square inch price will be rounded up to the $60 minimum. You may combine smaller items on the same backing to count as 1 item.
All prices are in Canadian dollars.
Batting is a separate charge and NOT included in the square inch price.
I stock Hobbs batting on the roll and sell it by the inch.
I will only use what is absolutely necessary. Whenever possible I will use the shortest side of your quilt top plus 5 inches.
For example, if you have a 60" x 80" quilt, I would cut 65" inches of the batting of your choice.
65" of Hobbs 80/20 96 wide @ $0.30/in = $19.50.
65" of Hobbs Heirloom Wool 108" wide @ $0.65/in = $42.25
Hobbs 80/20 - Cotton/ Poly Natural 96" wide $0.30/in
Hobbs 80/20 - Cotton/ Poly Natural 120" wide $0.40/in
Hobbs 80/20 - Cotton/ Poly Bleached 108" wide $0.40/in
Hobbs Heirloom Premium Wool 108" wide $0.65/in
If you prefer, you may provide your own high-quality batting.
Usually, I blend a neutral thread color with the medium to lightest fabrics in your quilt top, but I love using colours too, so let me know what you like!
I use primarily Gide and Wonderfil threads, which are included in the square inch price.
As mentioned above, batting is not included in the per inch price. GST & PST will be collected where applicable.
Making backing $15 per seam. this includes pressing backing.
Trimming quilt $10
Additional fees may be charged for possible snags I run into while working on your quilt. It could be pleating, trimming excess thread, ironing, etc. (Don't worry too much about this because you are going to follow my quilt prep guide...right?!) $30 per hour.
