This is one of my own quilts... I just love those simple hearts in the setting blocks. 💙 it was good practice doing set-in seams. It is about 46" square.

Level 1: $.015/sq inch (*large* meander)
Level 2: $.018/sq inch (standard meander, and a few select simple patterns)
Level 3: $.02/sq inch (most patterns will be in this category)
Level 4: $.025+ (very densely quilted patterns, price will reflect quilting time & extra thread)
Minimum charge will be $40, consider grouping small pieces on one backing to be quilted with the same pattern to avoid the minimum charge for each small piece.
Complete binding: $.10/linear inch.

trip around the world quilt
The front is made from t-shirt fabric. Because of the stretch of the knit fabric, I "tied" it using a large X stitch on my sewing machine in every other block. It's very soft and cozy!

custom made tshirt quilt
A grid-layout t-shirt quilt... 40 shirts, 5x8 grid. Some blocks needed to be cut to smaller sizes to fit them all in. I used tshirt pieces for the cornerstones to add some fun pops of color to the black sashing.
It's quilted with the Meander Squared pattern.

Prewashing your fabric
I recommend pre-washing your backing fabric to reduce shrinkage in your quilt and to remove any excess dyes in the fabric.
I just purchased a piece of flannel for the backing of a baby quilt, and it measured 63 5/8 x 43 1/2 before washing, and after washing & drying on low heat it measured 60 1/2 x 42. That's 3" lost through shrink on the length (parallel to the selvedges)... flannel would probably shrink more than regular quilting cotton, but that's not a given either, depending on the brand of fabric.
