I have an APQS Lucey Longarm Machine with a 12' table that is capable of quilting a quilt top to 120 inches wide.
The APQS Quilt Path Computerized Quilting Program will allow you to choose from over 1000 quilting patterns.
I live in Elgin Texas about 30 miles east of Austin on US Hwy 290 East.
If you can't come to Elgin, I am happy to meet you somewhere within a 45 mile radius of Elgin TX. Or you can mail your quilt to me.
Provide me with your Quilt Top and Backing that you would like to have quilted, and from there we will discuss at length what you envision your finished quilt looking like, starting from quilting patterns and styles up to and including the thread color.
I charge anywhere from 2.5 cents a square inch to 4 cents a square inch depending on the quilting pattern chosen and how dense the pattern is. An average Twin Sized Quilt is approximately 59x85. At 2.5 cents, the cost for quilting would be $125.37.
We can discuss what you have in mind for simple custom quilting. It includes stitching in the ditch, outline stitching, block designs, sashing and border designs. The charges will be 3 cents a square inch or more depending on the extent of the detailing you would like.
Heirloom Quilting is detailed custom quilting which included cross hatching and background fills. The charges for Heirloom Quilting is 8 cents a square inch.
If you need me to provide the batting for your quilt, the average price is 27 cents per lineal inch. The batting for the same Twin Sized Quilt would be $22.95.
If you need me to piece the backing or add the binding to the quilt, I will include that service for an additional fee.
If you provide me with raw fabric that needs to be cut pieced before it's used, that cost will start at $20
I charge 25 cents per lineal inch to add binding. An average Twin Sized Quilt would be $72. If you provide me with the raw fabric to cut and piece, that will be an additional $25.
If you wish to have a specialized thread used on your quilt such as variegated, the quilting fees may change.
Please make sure that before you give me your quilt top to quilt, that you take the time to press the seams and clip the loose threads. It makes the quilting process much smoother. If your quilt top needs to be pressed or clipped when I receive it, you will have the option to reschedule the quilting or allow me to do it at $25 an hour.
I will take T-shirts that you provide and turn them into a Quilted keepsake that is used and loved instead of old shirts that are stuffed into a drawer and not appreciated.
If you want your t-shirts sewn together in simple squares or blocks, I charge $18 per square/block. Quilting/Batting and Binding included.
If you want your t-shirt squares separated or "framed" by fabric, I charge $20 to $22 per square/block. Quilting/Batting and Binding included.
Sometimes a quilt top just looks more finished with fabric bordering the entire quilt. That price can be discussed depending on the final size of the T-shirt quilt.
Prices shown do not include Tax. Quilting fees and services are subject to change. Shipping charges may apply.
Are you ready for me to finish your quilt, or do you have a question about my services? Send me a message and I'll get back to you soon!
