Pricing Guidelines for Quilt Finishing

Pricing for stitching is by the square inch based upon the type of quilting you choose.

How to figure the stitching cost:

Multiply the width x length x price per square inch.

Example: Full Size top, Edge to Edge:  one design - 70” x 80” = 5600 square inches x $0.025 =*$140.00

*There is no separate set-up charge.

Quilting Type Descriptions
