Fees for Machine Quilting

Most machine quilters charge by the size of the quilt top combined with the style of quilting requested and type of thread used.

I use a Gammill Longarm Statler Stitcher.

The various styles of quilting are charged at different rates. 

There are hundreds of patterns available for use on the Statler Stitcher using Creative Studio and suit all types of quilts.

Our example shows pricing for an Edge to Edge (all over)Pattern.


To Calculate an approximate cost:

First measure your quilt top to find the length and width in inches. Since every machine and every quilter will sew slightly different quarter inch seam, you must actually measure your top instead of relying on the finished measurements given in your pattern. The first step is to multiply your length in inches times your width in inches. Then follow the formula below substituting you dimensions and the quoted pricing.

Square feet:

80" x 90" = 7200 sq.in.
7200 sq. in. ÷ 144 sq.in. = 50 sq.ft
50 sq.ft. x $4.50 = $200.00
