At Fiddlehead Quiltz quilting studio, I offer computerized quilting services, from edge to edge (pantographs) to custom computerized quilting. Quilting is done on a Gammill Statler longarm machine.
To calculate cost of quilting take measurement of quilt (length x width), in square inches and multiply by cost. eg: 50 inch x 60 inch= 3000 square inch x .02 = $60
Tier 1 Simple meander ($0.015 per square inch)
Tier 2 E2E (pantograph) all over ($0.020 per square inch)
Tier 3 E2E Custom (pantograph) with border treatment, specialized E2E layout ($0.030 per square inch)
Tier 4 Custom ($0.040 and above)
(minimum charge $50)
Basting service for sit down machines, hand quilters etc $0.005 per square inch
Batting: Hobbs Heirloom (80%cotton/20% polyester) $12.00 per yard
Thread: $1.00 per bobbin
Backing Seam $10.00 per seam
Other charges such as ironing top/backing for quilting, fixing top, etc to be discussed.
Note: Quilters Dream batting to be added soon!
Preparing quilt top for quilting:
– press and square quilt top
– backing should be 4-6 inches larger than quilt top on all sides, trim off selvage edges when piecing backing together and iron backing seam
– batting should be 4 inches larger than quilt top on all sides
– When attaching border to quilt tops measure in 3 places, across the top of quilt, middle of quilt and bottom of quilt, take the three measurement and divide by three to get the length the border should be cut for the measured side. cut border to size and ease in fullness when sewing on border. Do this to the bottom as well. Measure again for the next set of borders, both at top, centre and bottom and divide the three measurements by three. Cut borders to measured length and sew on quilt. This method eliminates wavy borders which may be problematic for quilting.
