Enter the length, width, and price per square inch into the calculator to determine the quilt cost.

Quilt Cost Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the cost of a quilt.

QC = L * W * CSI

  • Where QC is the total cost of the quilt ($)
  • L is the length of the quilt (inches)
  • W is the width of the quilt (inches)
  • CSI is the cost per square inch of quilt ($/in^2)

The cost of the quilt is calculated by multiplying the length and width together and then multiplying that result by the cost per square inch of the quilt.

How is a quilt cost determined?

The cost of a quilt is a function of the skill of the quilter, the cost of the material used to make the quilt, and the total time needed to finish the quilt.

The longer it takes to finish the quilt, the more it will cost. Similarly, if special materials are used for the quilt, the cost will also go up.

How to calculate the cost of a quilt?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines how to estimate the cost of a quilt.

First, determine the length of the quilt. In this example, the quilt is measured to be 50 inches long.

Next, determine the width of the quilt. In this case, the width is measured to be 25 inches long.

Next, determine the cost per square inch of the quilt. This quilt is being sold at a cost of $0.50 per square inch.

Finally, calculate the cost of the quilt using the formula above:

QC = L * W * CSI

QC =50 * 25 * .50

QC = $625.00
