I've finished my first huge quilt (king size) that I can't possibly quilt myself and do it justice. I've given myself a crash course in pantograms vs. free quilting on a long arm. I know that at least generally speaking a simple pantogram design should be cheaper to quilt than a customized job that quilts different designs according to the various shapes found in the blocks and borders and sashing. I also know better than to just say do whatever you think would look best. Can some one give me a general idea of ballpark quilt charges? I plan to go to a local quilt shop and get some names of people they trust. I also know that cheapest is not always the best in the long run. I'm just trying to brace myself for the prices. Are they usually priced per block, per inch, or what? All advice appreciated.
