Many people send emails or call me asking about quilting prices. While I can give you a really good estimate, the actual cost of quilting depends on what you want done to your quilt.
What is each type of quilting?
Simple, edge to edge designs (freehand or pantograph) start at $0.015 per square inch. Examples of this quilting include stippling, paisley, or leaf and flower designs.
More complex overall designs, or a quilt with a different border treatment than the body of the quilt, cost $0.02 per square inch. A typical twin sized quilt done in this fashion would cost approximately $120 to quilt.
Semi custom quilting includes SID around blocks or outlining appliques, separate border treatments, individual block designs, other details specific to the quilt. This quilting begins at $0.03 per square inch and increases in price based on the complexity of the design.
Custom quilting is the most intense. It involves creating designs for each section of the quilt, using dense fills, trapunto, and other specialty techniques. This type of quilting begins at $0.04 per square inch and increases in price based on the complexity of the design.
I prefer to use wool, cotton blend, or quilt shop quality polyester batting.
