A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.
Lately I’ve had a series of difficult quilts. First the one with the do over border….. now this one.
I had this one on the machine. It had lots of fullness in the piecing and the border. I first basted the entire thing to see if I could work out the fullness. It only got worse as I got it basted. I finally had to call the owner about the problem.
This one gets custom quilting. Out of curiosity I’ve decided to track my time on this one. I want to see how much I’m earning per hour on a large custom quilt. My best guess it that it may take me 4 or 5 days of quilting time. Since I work 12 hours a day, that means somewhere between 48 to 60 hours of work on one quilt.
