There have been quite a few of us that have quilted a Judy Nemeiyer Glacier Star, so I thought it might be an interesting comparison to see just how long we take to quilt them. My own quilt was the 60'x 60" so 25 sq feet and I heavily custom quilted it. It took me 11 hours from the time I took it out of the bag to the time I took it off the frame. I'd like to charge a customer $495 for me to do it. I know of another shop owner who has been quoted this amount by another longarmer to have her shop sample done. So I am close to the dollars. But that is $20 a sq foot. Our minumum wages are higher than the US, an 18yr old earns almost $20 an hour at McDonalds. I feel as a quilter we should earn way more than that per hour. So how long has it taken others of you doing a Glacier Star to quilt them, or if you willing how much did you charge/or should you have charged the customer?
I have just finished quilting my own Glacier Star quilt. It still needs to be blocked, then bound, then back to the shop it goes for a class sample. Mostly Glide threads with bottomline bobbins to match. Almost 11 hours on the machine. Now Milady needs a thorough clean and I need to sort out where threads are getting caught up in the hook assembly.
