There are several levels of quilting styles available. This is just a guide to give you an estimate on what to expect to pay for quilting services. Each job is individually priced and based on the total square inches of the quilt top. To figure the total square inches of your quilt top, measure the width and length of your quilt top (in inches). Multiply the length x width to get the total.
