Modern Tiles was inspired by two and three colored geometric tiles. But instead of laying out your whole “floor” on your own, with this pattern, you will receive a tile grouping in a nine-patch format that allows you to focus on block building while still keeping many color and layout options.

Color Inspiration: Pin
(9) pink and orange solids for the background (KonaCotton Carnation, Candy Pink, Honeysuckle, Cerise, Pomegranate, Creamsickle, Tangerine, Torch and School Bus)

Costs are calculated via my Quilt Price Calculator: Factors are the size & pieces as mentioned above, the presets for a queen quilt – excluding batting.
I would also have to add the costs for the longarming service which was 240 Euro – including the batting.
In my opinion the normal theory of factor 2 and factor 3 sales prices does not apply here, because I „subcontracted“ the quilting part. That theory accounts for the piecing AND quilting work. So I would normally use the sum from factor 2 and add the additional longarm cost: 404.74 + 240.00 = 644.74.
