Longarm Quilting Services

My longarm quilting machine is computerized and I offer professional quilting services, with a variety of all-over pantograph designs and custom quilting to your specifications. There are too many pantograph patterns to show individually and I am continually adding more. Please contact me and I can discuss pattern choices with you.

I offer binding options also and the prices are listed below. My turnaround time is typically 3-4 weeks. If I am doing the binding on your quilt, I will need a little more time.

Machine Quilting Prices

All-Over Design Pantographs or meandering - $0.015 per square inch – Pantographs are rows of quilting done edge-to edge throughout the entire quilt. Meandering is a stipple-like pattern which can consist of curves, puzzle like design or loops.
Custom Quilting
Option 1
This includes one main design like a pantograph in the center and one border design – $0.025 - $0.03 per square inch.
Custom Quilting
Option 2
Includes many different types of quilting. Blocks, sashing and borders – $0.0350 - $0.0450 per square inch.
The minimum charge for All-Over design is $45.00 and for Custom Quilting $55.00
To figure out your quilting cost you multiply the width times the length to get the square inches.
Then you multiply this by the quilting service you are requesting.

Example, if your quilt is 52 x 70, multiply this to get the square inches which is 3,640. Multiply 3,640 by $0.015 (all over design if that is the option you choose). The total is $54.60.
Binding Option 1 Making the binding, you supply the fabric, and machine sewing it to the top - $0.12
Binding Option 2 Making the binding, machine sewing it to the top and hand sewing it to the back - $0.19
Binding is priced by linear inch – take the measurements of all four sides of your quilt, example– if your quilt is 52 x 70, add 52 + 52 + 70 + 70 to get your linear inches. Then multiply it by the binding option you choose.
Batting I carry Hobbs 80/20 and Warm & Natural – 100% Cotton - $9.00 per yard

Additional Quilting Service

If you have a quilt top or project that you just cannot seem to complete, let me finish it for you. It could be piecing blocks together, attaching borders or maybe you have an assortment of blocks that you purchased and thought you would make a quilt top someday but never found the time. I can complete this project for you. My charge for this service is $20.00 per hour.
