Edge to Edge: $0.02 per square inch (Pantograph design catalogue coming soon!)
Edge to edge quilting is our most popular and cost effective way to turn your  quilt tops into beautiful heirlooms. To estimate cost for edge to edge quilting, multiply the width of your quilt by length (in inches). The result is your total square inches. Then multiply that number by .02. Batting is additional.

Example: Your quilt top measures 66" wide and 86" long. 

66 x 86 = 5676 square inches.
5676 x 0.02 = $113.52

Custom Quilting: $20.00 per hour

Preparation of Backing
$10.00 per seam

Correction of wavy borders
up to $25
To avoid this extra charge, please follow these instructions:
1. Lay your quilt out flat.
2. Measure the (vertical) length of the quilt IN THE CENTER of the quilt,  DO NOT MEASURE THE LENGTH BY MEASURING THE EDGES.
3. Cut your border pieces to this measurement, and apply your borders.
4. Measure the (horizontal) width of the quilt IN THE CENTER, DO NOT MEASURE THE WIDTH BY MEASURING THE EDGES. (Don't forget to add on the width of your lengthwise borders!)
5. Cut your border pieces to this measurement, and apply your borders. 
Please do not simply lay your border fabric on your quilt top and sew, then trim off the excess. This will result in waves or a ruffle effect.

Preparing your quilt:
PLEASE be sure that your backing fabric and your batting are both 4-6 INCHES BIGGER than your quilt top ON ALL SIDES. 

We recommend that you leave the selvages on.  This would be for both the center seam when piecing and the outer edges.  For the center seam use at least a 1/2 inch seam allowance from the selvage. 
If you do not provide the back with selvages in tact, make sure that each side of the back is straight.  For example:  You do not want a part of the side 2 inches less than the other fabric for the same side.  If all sides are not straight, the quilter will try to straighten the back, and it may not be large enough.  All sides need to be straight in order to make sure that the quilting for the top has enough coverage in all 4 corners.   (quilting all 4 corners makes a happy quilter!) 

Note: In order to straighten the cross wide grain, snip the fabric against the edge and rip the cross grain. (Yes - you can rip the cross grain, don't be afraid!) This will straighten your edge.

Please press your quilt top and all seams, as well as your backing.

How much Fabric Do I need for Binding?

[(Length of quilt x 2) + (Width of Quilt x 2)] + 20 = X

Divide X by 40 inches.

Example:
[(70 x 2) + (60 x 2)] + 20 = 280 linear inches.

280 divided by 40 inches (standard width of fabric) = 7 strips of fabric.

If you use 2.5 inch binding, then 7 x 2.5 = 17.5 inches, which is about 1/2 yard.
