Custom Quilting

The process for requesting a custom quilting quote starts here!

I offer computerized edge to edge and custom freehand quilting services and specialize in my own form of Free Motion Quilting (FMQ), which I call Sketchbook Quilting. My FMQ style resembles the sketches I doodle in my notebook – completely random, free motion, no rhyme or reason, without heavy repetitive stitch lines. For examples of my work, check out my #saridittyquilted photos. All longarm quilting is done on my Handi Quilter Fusion, and some items may be eligible for quilting on my Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen.

Edge to Edge
Computerized Edge to Edge Quilting: starts at $0.03 per square inch.

Freehand All Over Designs: starts at $0.04-$0.045 per square inch. Freehand designs that cover the entire quilt.

Custom Quilting: starts at $0.045 – $0.06 per square inch. Custom quilting that is tailored to individual blocks and borders.

Deluxe Custom Quilting: starts at $0.065 per square inch. Custom heirloom quilting that includes micro stippling, ruler work, show quilts. etc.

Quilts smaller than 3,600 square inches (60″ x 60″) will be charged at an hourly rate of $35 per hour.

A $60 minimum applies to all quilts. This covers 2 hours of quilting time.

A single, solid color top thread and bobbin thread is included in my price estimate. Additional charges will be added for multiple thread color/type changes, variegated, metallic, and/or monofilament threads. Quilts are not trimmed unless customer requests this service.  Fees will be discussed if this service is requested. Binding can be added on for an additional fee if desired.

The client is responsible for all shipping costs to and from me. Most clients opt for USPS Priority which includes tracking and insurance up to $50 with the option to add additional insurance.

I accept PayPal or Credit Card (via Square app which adds a 3% fee). I prefer half of the estimated cost to be paid up front, and we can work out a payment plan if that amount is beyond your budget. Final payment is due upon completion of quilting and prior to sending the quilt back to you.

I highly suggest enclosing your quilt top/fabric in a plastic bag inside of the parcel just in case it encounters inclement weather or accidents in transit. Likewise I will return the quilt to you inside a plastic bag within the shipping box.

A few important things to remember:

*Press the quilt top and backing
*Trim all loose threads from the quilt top
*Backing MUST be at least 4″ larger on all four sides to accommodate proper loading, prep, and clamping/tension
*If you include your own batting, it must be at least 4″ larger on all four sides of the quilt top

Please contact me before sending quilt tops.  I feel it is extremely important to discuss each quilt before we get started.  I want you to be 100% satisfied with your quilt and I think it’s very important that I know what you expect for your treasured quilt top.

If you have any additional questions please include them in the Additional Information field below.

Fields marked with an * are required

Measure your quilt side to side and provide the value in inches

Measure your quilt top to bottom and provide the value in inches

 

Backing must be 4"-8" larger than your quilt top on all 4 sides to allow lead bar and belly bar room to pin down, and allow side cords to hold tautly without infringing on the machine's stitch patch. If you are sending your backing with your quilt top, any applicable seams should be pressed down and the backing should be folded neatly. If you are shipping your backing fabric directly from a retailer please address the package to Sariditty Handmade attn: [your name] then my address (which I will provide once we've decided to move forward with quilting).
