What began in 1998 as a weekend trip with my mother to help find quilts for a friend is now a custom gift business. We make custom quilts in hard-to-find patterns, exclusive patterns with the artist's permission, and unique patterns I design. We also specialize in modernizing old favorites, such as double wedding ring quilts and making quilts out of printed photos, mementos, clothing and other fabrics. Baby crib quilts have become harder to find so we offer a variety of baby quilts in those smaller sizes that can easily be personalized with a baby's name and birth date.

Handmade quilts for sale and ready-to-ship quilts are always available for you if you do not have the time for custom quilts. Please browse in our Shop.

Quilt Costs

What do handmade quilts costs and what to consider when buying handmade quilts and ordering Bluebird Gardens custom quilts.

Handmade Quilt Costs

What Do Handmade Quilts Cost?

The cost of handmade quilts, lap quilts throws and baby quilts depends on a number of factors: where the quilt is made, what size it is, what products are used in the quilt and how much work and expertise goes into the handmade quilt.

Made in US quilts are more expensive than imported quilts. The better the quality of the materials and the work, including the hand-quilting, the more expensive the handmade quilt will be.

What Are Important Cost Factors

The first important factor is the quality of fabrics. You want high-quality, long-lasting fabrics so you can easily wash and dry your handmade quilt for a very long time.

The second factor is how the handmade quilt is made; you should not see seams coming loose or have any part of the quilt that needs to be stitched when you get home.

The quilting, whether machine or hand-quilted, should have even stitches. Hand-quilting should be at least 6 stitches per inch; the more even stitches per inch, the more experienced the quilter.

Cost of Most Popular Queen Size Quilt

Let's assume you are buying, or making, the most popular handmade quilt size, queen 90x90.

Depending on the pattern, good quality fabrics for handmade quilts will start around $50. Batting starts at $35. Thread $10-20. Cutting and piecing takes an average of 15-30 hours per handmade quilt, depending on the quilter's experience and selected quilt pattern.

Machine quilting and setting the quilt averages 5-10 hours.

Hand quilting will take at least another three months.

Always look for quality. If you are giving a handmade quilt as a gift, you want something that will look good and be usable, not just pretty. If you are selecting a handmade quilt for your own use, buy the best quality you can find. You want a handmade quilt that will last!
