Custom Quilting Rates:

Almost all the custom quilts we make end up costing between $300 and $1000. The cost to get your T-shirts and/or clothing to be made into a quilt is made up of two things:

(1) Quilting Services
Our fee for quilting services includes the design, sewing together the material (piecing), edge to edge quilting of entire quilt, and binding the quilt. This is based on based on the size of the quilt.  For typical T-Shirt and memory quilts the rate is $.07 per square inch.

Rates for non-typical designs run $.09 -$.20 cents per square inch. Non-typical would include things like quilts made from Crown Royal bags, denim clothing, clothing with a lot of embellishments/bedazzling, or where only small graphics from chest or pocket are used (instead of the larger shirt), etc.  We will advise you if your project is non-typical.


(2) Materials
Materials include thread; batting; interfacing; additional fabric for quilt back, sashing, & borders.

Quilt Kits

Completing quilt kits involves 3 things:

(1) Cutting and sewing together the quilt top
Because quilt kits come in so many types and sizes, we charge by the hour for the actual cutting and sewing together the quilt top. Our hourly rate for this is $35 per hour. (but we are really fast!) In fact in most cases, even though our hourly rate may be higher than others, what you end up paying is much less. It is what we call the difference between price and cost.

(2) Quilting and Binding
For finishing the quilt we charge our standard long arm quilting rates.

(3) Additional Materials
Additional materials are generally limited to fabric for quilt back, batting, and thread


Art Quilts 

We accept no money or deposits up front for art quilts. If you request us to make an art quilt, the price will be determined both by the time and materials used. Once the quilt is completed, if you like it (and the price) you will have the option to purchase it.
