Longarm Machine Quilting

Edge to Edge patterns (pantographs and some freehand patterns) are the same pattern from left to right and top to bottom. This is the most common type of quilting. They are generally a penny and a half per square inch. Here's the formula:

width of quilt x length of quilt x $0.015

So, if your quilt is 50" x 70", the quilting would be $52.50.

Custom quilting starts at two cents a square inch and can go to five cents a square inch.


I carry Hobbs 80/20 blend. It's the most popular quilting blend out there and works great for wall quilts and bed quilts, alike. It's 15 cents per inch for 96" wide batting. Anything larger is a special order and I can give you a quote when you're ready to order.


Binding is 15 cents per linear inch, if the binding is prepared and ready to be sewn to the front of the quilt. Here's the formula:

(width of quilt + width of quilt + length of quilt + length of quilt) x .15

So, if your quilt is 50" x 70", the binding would be $36.00.

If the binding needs to be prepared (pieced and pressed) and sewn to the front of the quilt, it's 20 cents a linear inch.

I will also hand-stitch the binding to the back of the quilt for an additional 30 cents a linear inch.


The rule of thumb for a pieced quilt is that the labor is equal to the cost of the fabric. That's a good starting point. However, some quilt patterns are time consuming and can cost a little more.
