I use and stock my favorite Quilters Dream batting in the 80/20 cotton/poly blend. If you are interested in another batting type, please let me know and I can always order special for you.
Batting is a separate charge and is NOT included in the square inch price.
I charge for batting by the linear inch from queen rolls of batting except in the case of special orders. I will use only what is needed for your quilt (smallest side + a 5" margin) and charge $0.35 per inch.
For example, if you have a 60" x 80" quilt, I would cut 65" of the batting of your choice.
65" of 80/20 cotton/poly blend @ $0.35/in = $22.75
Square Inch Price
2 cents for all designs.
Example: A quilt top is 60 inches x 80 inches. 60 x 80 = 4800 x .02 = $96.
My minimum quilting charge is $40. This means that a small quilt or table runner's square inch price will be rounded up to the $40 minimum.
I stock Glide (#40 weight) and some specialty threads (such as monopoly and glitter threads) I don't charge any extra fees for thread use, it's included in your square inch price.
My personal style attempts to complement one of the lighter or prominent colors of your quilt, allowing the thread to be seen yet not take away from the quilt design. But this is YOUR quilt! Let me know if you have a preference on thread color.
[I would not list this service if you aren't confident in your photography skills, but remember, this is always something that improves as you work on it!]
I'm not a professional photographer but I do my best to take "nice" photos with my "good" camera! :) Upon completion of the quilting, I will take photos of your quilt and then text/email you those images to use however you would like. I'd just ask that you credit me for the photo and/or quilting if posting publicly. This extra service is included in your square inch price.
Shipping your top and backing to me: I live in Wisconsin, USA, and would be happy to receive your top and backing by mail. I'd recommend sending your materials enclosed in some kind of sack or bag to protect against possible moisture in transit and then placed in a hard-sided cardboard box. Make sure the box is securely taped and labeled clearly.
Return shipping: I will send your quilt back to you in the manner described above via USPS Priority mail (using flat rate when possible/economical). Priority mail comes with $50 of insurance and a tracking number but please indicate on your intake form if you would like me to buy any additional insurance on your behalf. It's a great idea to insure your valuables against loss or damage while with the Postal Service, but I don't require it.
As mentioned above, batting is not included in the square inch price. I'm required by the State of Wisconsin to collect a 5.5% sales tax on the batting as well as the quilting service portion of an invoice. Shipping and any design/pantograph fees are not subject to sales tax.
After the work is complete, I will invoice you via PayPal. I really do appreciate timely payments as that enables me to mail your project(s) back to you right away.
