Custom Quilting

DSCN6174

Various areas of the quilt, such as blocks, sashings, borders, and backgrounds, receive different designs. More than one color of thread may be used. Custom quilting is billed at $30/hour. Simple custom (which would not include ruler work, stitch-in-the-ditch, or dense fills) on a queen-sized quilt may take 4 – 8 hours. More complex quilting can take 10 – 20 hours or more, especially on quilts with lots of applique. Turn around time for custom generally runs 1 to 4 months. Minimum charge for custom quilting is $75.
