Quilted countertops... interesting. What's the phrase, lipstick on a pig? Instead of telling the customer "you're getting stuck with a boatload of seams- seams that are going to get packed with dirt and food," they tell them "look at the pretty quilted pattern all these seams make!" I applaud waste not want not approaches as much as the next guy, but, unless they're heavily discounting these quilted counters (and, from the single price on the raw material, it seems like they're not) this is one seriously questionable business practice.
Norma, look in the phone book under kitchen remodeling and start calling the contractors that list soapstone. There's a good chance these guys are going the quilted route as well, but you might find one with scraps.
You might also want to investigate whether or not Bucks County sells tiles. Like I said before, tiles are not ideal, but they will probably be more affordable.
