    For those of you that send your quilts out, what is the average price (INCLUDING shipping, etc) that it costs for like a queen size quilt? I'm sure that there must be a large varity of prices and I am looking for someone who could finally get my tops quilted! Thanks!

    I do not know about shipping, but I just took my quilt to be quilted and it cost me $144.00. It is 72x95. She is not using any custom quilting - that is more $. I also bought the batting from her - was $17.00 so that could be subtracted. For me it is worth every penny!!! She is going to use a circular design.

    Hm - Interesting - it is really frustrating to take the time piecing the top and then when I get to quilting it most of the time I kinda-sorta mess it up.....:-(

    Usually local quilt shops have people that will quilt your quilts. Thet even put them together. It is costly though. Probably 300.00 for a queen size. Some shops have long arms they will give you a lesson and then you ren t the time and do your own. Another option, some local senior centers have the machines and they are free but there is a wait list.

    It depends on so many things...what part of the country you are in, what type of pattern you choose (panto, custom, semi-custom), how many thread changes, pattern density, whether other services are included (binding, batting, backing, etc), too many variables to give an "average" price. Pricing here starts with a price per square inch for complexity of pattern and then all those other things factor in. I, too, think it's worth it for large quilts.

    Honestly - it totally depends upon the area of the country (there are many different price points, depending upon what the going rate is in the area) and also the design you choose. Most people charge by the inch, but you will find some that will do an allover meander type quilting pattern for a set price per size.

    A local person in your area can work with you and show you many different ways you could quilt a quilt on a budget, and you have the advantage of not loosing the quilt in shipping - and assurance you get what you wanted. This is only my opinion...and experience :) Good luck!
