|An Example of the how to work out what it might cost|
|Measure your quilt top through the centre from top to bottom to|
|get the length.|
|Measure your quilt top through the centre from side to side to|
|get the width.|
|Then calculate using the formula below.|
|Example only - 60" x 80" = 4800 square inches|
|4800 square inches divided by 144 = 33.33 square feet|
|33.33 square feet x $4.00 = $132.30|
|Pre-requisites needed for your quilt|
|If you are supplying the backing and wadding - it needs to be at|
|least 3" larger than the tip of the quilt on all sides. This allows|
|for loading into the machine.|
|All threads need to be trimmed from the front and back of the|
|quilt top and all seams to be ironed flat - this applies to any|
|Mark the top of the quilt with a pin or tag.|
|There is no need to pin your layers together as they will need|
|to be undone before putting through my machine.|
