Quilting Pattern and Density


PATTERN:

You will need to select your edge-to-edge pattern as well as the density of the pattern. See our pattern catalog for in-stock edge-to-edge patterns.

If we have the pattern, we will provide it to you at our cost to use it. Generally there is no cost to using a pattern, but some purchased patterns have a nominal cost to purchase or per use. Please see our edge-to-edge pattern catalog for details.

If you would like us to purchase a pattern for your quilt, we will provide a quote for you, typically 50% of the cost of the pattern purchase price.

 

QUILTING DENSITY:

Shrinking or enlarging the pattern determines the density of the quilting. A quilt with a lower quilting density will have a smaller number of instances of the pattern on the quilt than will a quilt with a higher quilting density, the pattern size will be larger, and the space between the quilting lines will be larger.  Conversely, a quilt with a higher quilting density will have a larger number of instances of the pattern on the quilt than will a quilt with a lower quilting density, the pattern size will be smaller, and the space between the quilting lines will be smaller.

Since patterns vary in size and quilts vary in size, the exact sizing of each pattern instance will vary depending your specific quilt size and the pattern selected.

We will size your selected pattern to your density request based on your specific quilt.

You will need to determine how densely you want the pattern quilted.

Quilting Pricing:

  • Low Density (2.0 cents/sq. in) – This generally has greater than 1” between the quilt lines.
  • Medium Density (2.5 cents/sq. in) – This generally has approximately 1” between the quilt lines.
  • High Density (3.0 cents/sq. in) – This generally has less than 1” between the quilt lines.
  • There is a minimum quilting charge of $45 on all quilts.
