♥Edge-to-Edge—

.02-.035 per square inch

Pantograph designs are repeated “rows” of patterns that go from one edge to the other edge of your quilt.  This can include all over meandering designs with many choices, from plain to fancy with swirls and curves.

♥Custom—

.04-.06 per square inch

Custom quilts are priced individually as each one is so unique. Custom designs can include individual block designs, stitch-in-the-ditch, outlining, cross hatching, freehand quilting designs, or use of templates. Many of these include marking, measuring and centering which is more time consuming but extremely enhancing to your quilt.

♥Heirloom—

06 and up per square inch

Heirloom quilts are also priced individually and usually include tight stippling, small background grids, feathers, trapunto, and/or dense free hand quilting designs. This type of quilting is very labor intensive as it requires a great deal of marking, measuring and accuracy. Create prize winning designs for your quilt.

♥ Thread & New Needle charge—

$5 and up per quilt
       Specialty threads quoted per job

The amount of thread used depends on the size of your quilt and complexity of quilting.
Pat carries a wide variety of colors to easily match any quilt. Each quilt gets a fresh new needle and some more densely quilted pieces may require 2 to 3 needles.
