Longarm pricing is based on a "per square inch" calculation. Simply multiply the length of the quilt by the width to get the square inches, then multiply that number by the price for the type of quilting you desire.
$0.025-$0.045 per square inch
This type of quilting will run from one edge of the quilt to the other, creating an overall surface texture. The computerized designing allows access to unlimited digital designs and is executed with exact precision and consistency. The price range varies dependi on the design complexity and the density of the quilting.
$0.035-$0.045 per square inch
An edge to edge design in the body with separate designs in the borders. Up to 3 borders in this price range.
$0.04-$0.90 per square inch
This style of quilting is where a separate design is chosen for the blocks - either a single design for each block or multiple designs. Stops and starts are required in each block and often multiple placements within a block. Separate designs are chosen for the borders and sashings.
Due to the extensive attention some styles of quilting require, some custom quilting will be charged by the hour instead of the square inch. This will be talked about in your consultation.
