Longarm Quilting

Longarm Quilting Services & Pricing: Quilting is priced by the square inch.
Square inches are calculated by multiplying the quilt top length X width=square inches.
Cost to quilt is the square inches X the type of quilting chosen.
(Example: 70” X 70” = 4900 square inches, 4900 square inches X 01.5 = $73.50)

Edge-to-Edge Large Spaced Quilting Design .015Edge-to-Edge Medium Density of Stitches **Minimum $50 Charge for any quilt******Maximum quilts width is 127".

Batting:The Batting must be 6-8 inches larger than the quilt top in both length and width.Quilters Dream Batting is available for purchase. Fiber contents available are cotton, 80/20 cotton/polyester blend, polyester, & wool.You may also supply your own batting. Be sure the batting you supply is made for longarm machine.

Backing Fabric:The backing fabric must be 6 inches larger than the quilt top in length and width.The backing fabric should be squared-up and pressed. It may be a wide backing fabric or it may be a pieced backing.If it is a pieced backing the seams should run horizontally or from left to right across the quilt. All selvedges should be removed from the seams of the pieced backing. Press the seams open or in one direction. It reduces the risk of puckers on the back of the quilt.  If the backing has multiple seams in both directions I will do my best to avoid any puckers.Wide backings are generally 108" in width and are available at most local quilt shops. If you do not have access to a local shop, I do carry a basic selection of wide backings 108” in basic colors and prints. The wide backings I carry are manufactured by Moda and Wilmington Prints, both excellent. Prices vary and range from $16.99 to $25.99 a yard.Bed Sheets cannot be used as backing fabric. 

Thread Charge is $5.00 I use Glide. They are top quality and provide beautiful colors to complete the quilting process. For your quilt top you may select a thread and color or specify the type of thread and I can choose for you.
