Costs are calculated via my Quilt Price Calculator: Factors are the size & pieces as mentioned above, the presets for a twin quilt plus 10€ in extras (pattern). I am not counting the individual scraps in the backing or the sashing & border strips.
I sent my own batting to the longarmer so that is included as per the preset. I would also have to add the costs for the longarming service which was 220 Euro.
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. The result here would be almost the same…
