it depends on your location= the experience of the long-arm quilter, the pattern chosen ---there are lots of (variables) best way to find out is to find a quilter, call & ask- the prices vary across the country- and by many different (conditions)
there is a list of quilters here on the board (check the classifieds section) you could see if there is one listed in your area then send her a private message.
for a (range)===somewhere between $40 & $200.

Many longarmers charge by the square inch, so you need to know the quilt's exact size. Queens can vary greatly. A simple meander will be less per square inch than custom quilting, but it still varies quite a bit.

Are you the customer or the quilter? Is it done on DSM or LA? If you are a quilter you know that any type of quilting on DSM is a challenge with a large quilt. If you are a reasonably experienced LA quilter simple meander is the easiest. I am an absolute beginner when it comes to LA quilting and I can do a relatively decent job meandering. On my DSM I can do a great job but the pain of fighting the quilt under 6" throat is not worth it.

Probably will cost between $.01 to $.02 or more per inch. Call some LAQ in your area and ask.
