In the comments on my previous post, Susan asked me to publish my Quilting prices.
So..here is the way to work out how much it would cost.
QUILTING: As mentioned last post..I only quilt EDGE TO EDGE (same pattern for whole quilt)
POSTAGE: Price includes Australia Post getting you to sign upon delivery, that way the parcel is not left on the doorstep. When payment shows in my account, I send you a tracking number.
IF YOU WANT ME TO PROVIDE WADDING AND/OR BACKING:
WADDING: I use 60/40 (60% cotton/40% Polyester) from Victorian Textiles, Melbourne.
Wadding must be AT LEAST 5" larger than quilt top on all 4 sides.
(so add 10" to both measurements)
BACKING: I use 100% cotton, sometimes there will be a seam in it, as I don't have a lot of "wide" fabrics.
I DO NOT carry any flannel fabric.
Also, (some people shudder when I say this)...I "tear" the fabric, as this makes the fabric DEAD STRAIGHT on the quilting machine.
Again the fabric is to be at least 5" wider on all 4 sides of the quilt top.
So now to the costs......
I work in inches...say your quilt measures : 56" x 72"
QUILTING = 56 x 72 x 0.016 = $64.51.. I then round up to $65
WADDING = 66 x 82 x 0.006 = $33
BACKING = 66 x 82 x 0.008 = $44POSTAGE = $20
I "try" my hardest to return quilts within a week of receiving them...but this does backfire when I am inundated with a lot of quilts...so it might be 2 weeks!
Hope that helps...always happy to answer any questions.
