Edge to Edge quilting is the most cost effective choice, and is priced from $0.015 to $0.04 per square inch. Edge to Edge quilting uses simple all over patterns such as meanders, swirls, waves, loops, arcs, hearts, or stars. Edge to edge is a good choice for busy quilts that need something attractive and understated to hold them together.

Custom quilting is priced from $0.04 to $0.40 per square inch, based on the intricacy of the designs.  Custom quilting treats the body and the borders of the quilt separately. It might also include ditch, echo, channel, crosshatch, motif, stippling, and color block quilting.  Custom quilting prices are based on the the complexity of the time and work required.

How to Estimate the Cost

Pricing is based on the quilt top’s pre-quilted square inches:

To calculate square inches:

Measure quilt top length & width.

Multiply length by width.

Example:  56W x 78L = 4368 square inches

Multiply the square inches of the quilt top by the price of the pattern selected.  

For this Basic Edge to Edge example:

4368 x $0.015 = $65.52

Preparing Your Quilt

Please be sure that your backing and batting are 4 inches larger than the quilt top on all four sides.

Keep all layers separate.

Do not pin or baste.  

Make sure that the top and backing are squared with no ragged edges.

Remove selvages and snip all loose threads.  

Carefully press the top and the backing.

Mark the top of the backing and the top of the quilt top with a safety pin.

No embellishments. They interfere with the machine quilting process.

I can use your thread if it’s appropriate for quilting. Otherwise there is a standard thread charge of $8.00. Changing thread colors, specialty threads or metallics incur extra charges and will be quoted by the complexity of the work.

About Me

My first sewing lesson was at the local Singer Sewing Store in the small town where I lived.. I was 12 years old. I had already been sewing clothes for my Tiny Tears doll for about 3 years, when my mother agreed to let me have real sewing lessons at Singer. I was so happy, and by the time the classes had ended I had learned so much. From there my sewing followed me everywhere.

When I went off to college the machine went with me, and I used it to express my creativity in many ways. I was a fine art major. And later, when I got my Masters degree, the machine was still with me. I mean the same machine. In fact, I used it to sew for my 3 children.

Before retirement I managed the design department for a busy textile company. Now, I manage my own home based studio in South Central Virginia where the focus is on longarm quilting, developing quilting patterns, and publishing ebooks.

Autumn Elan Heirlooms is my home studio business name.  AutumnElan is my trade name signature mark and is used to identify my artistic work and designs.  My name is Patricia Kaszycki.
