Machine Quilting as a business

So I'm seriously considering investing in a professional machine to start a business in Machine Quilting.. I am wondering, though, how much to charge for machine quilting. If you have any ideas, knowledge, etc. please leave me a comment! All of your thoughts are appreciated!

I found these online and had to share! How can you pass up inspiration?

Quilt for my Dad...

This is a quilt I am putting together for my dad. I found this batik with the medicine bear and bear paw on it and thought it was perfect for him. He loves to snowbird, and they spend most of their time in AZ, so this was perfect for him! For the backing I used a microfleece. I was a little nervous about using it because of the stretchiness of the fabric but I sewed the backing selvage to selvage and eliminated most of the stretching. I really like how it looks too! The stitches give the microfleece an embossed look. I think my next few quilts will have the microfleece on the back! It was fun to use!
