An average finished twin completely quilted with a standard pattern, bound, and backed would be under $175 plus tax. Return shipping is free.

You may, but it’s not required. If you do wash your quilt top, you must also wash the backing and it must be ironed
5. Are ripples and puckers in my quilt top OK?
No! Please press your quilt top flat before shipping. Ripples and puckers will not be corrected by quilting, and it probably will not lay flat when finished.

Both batting and backing must be at least 6 to 8 inches larger than your quilt top.
