Edge-to-Edge Quilting Services

Quilting designs

A pattern can be stitched edge to edge in different densities. Low density patterns have more space between the lines of stitches. This results in a lighter, airy finish with more drape. Higher density patterns can be more dramatic and slightly stiffer. Dense quilting is often used for quilts that will be washed a lot to minimize shifting of the layers.

Prices vary from $0.025 to $0.03 per square inch depending on the density of stitching. For example, if your quilt top measures 70 x 90 inches and you prefer a less dense stitching, the quilting cost would be (70 x 90) x .025 = $157.50. Basting services are $0.025 cents per square inch.

Batting

You can provide your own batting or select from one of the following 96 inch wide batting options.

My favourite is an 80 cotton/20 polyester blend because of the flexibility it provides. Dense quilting will flatten the batting and give a low loft impression. Less quilting results in a light and airy feel. It weighs less than traditional cotton batting. It is machine washable and suitable for quilts that are going to be used such as children’s quilts, place-mats, or tablecloth quilts. $0.45 per linear inch.

The second option is cotton with a light polyester stabilizer. This batting is strong, yet soft. It is a low loft batting. Machine washable on a gentle cycle. $0.50 per linear inch.

The third option is a natural 50%Bamboo/50%Cotton. It is lightweight and breathable with a low loft. Machine washable in cold water on a gentle cycle. Lay flat to dry. $0.50 per linear inch.

Wider batting or specialty battings can be special ordered.

Binding

Binding finishes the quilt. There are four options depending on who prepares the binding strips and whether they are finished on the back of the quilt.

Client provides strips of 2 1/2 inch wide binding sewn together and pressed in half. I attach the binding by machine on the front only. Quilt is trimmed to 1/4 inch and returned to client with binding NOT attached at back. This service is $0.10 per linear inch.
