When our quilting services are priced per square inch. You can calculate the total number of square inches by measuring your quilt top in inches. Multiply the width measurement by the length measurement in inches. This will give you the number of square inches in your quilt. 


Width x Length = Y sq. inches


84 inches x 96 inches = 8,064 sq. inches

Quilting cost + batting = Total cost

Quilt Top Preparation
To prepare your quilt for the long-arm quilter please following the following steps. The quilt top, batting and backing should all be separate. Do not pin or baste the layers ahead of time. Press all seams and mark the top edge of the quilt top and backing with a safety pin, if it matters which end will be the top
of your quilt.

Remove all loose threads. If there are remaining threads that show through
the top, they will show through the lighter fabrics. Buttons, bows and beads
must wait until after the quilting is complete. If they are already on, ask
us, maybe we can work around them.

Do not cut rounded corners or scallops until the quilt is quilted. Mark the
cutting line clearly, so we know where to quilt, but do not cut it until
you are ready to apply the binding. If you have a round or scalloped tree
skirt or table topper, they can be pin basted on to the backing.

Make sure the backing is larger than the quilt top by 4 to 6 inches in
every direction. When the backing is put on the machine, space is taken
up by zippers on the top and bottom and clamps on the sides.

If you supply your own batting, the batting must be 3 inches larger than the quilt top on all sides. If we are making the binding for you, please send a yard
of fabric (any excess will be returned).
