Disclaimer:
If your project comes unprepared for quilting and it takes a long time to prep it to be loaded onto the machine, an additional cost of $15/hour may be added to the price quoted (ie, pressing, trimming threads, squaring up top/back/binding – anything that takes longer than 30 minutes.)

I will contact you if there are any problems with your quilt or additional/unforeseen costs. In such an instance, I will not progress on your project until I have discussed the situation with you so as to assure your happiness with the finished product. If I can not contact you this may bump your project until we have discussed a solution.

I am not able to quilt out or “fix” piecing errors. If the quilt top is not square, or the borders have extra fullness, you can expect tucks/pleats/gathers in the finished quilt. I will do my best to ease in as much as possible, but quilting will not line up points or seams.

Payment is due upon completion. Your quilt will be shipped back to you once payment is received.

What do I need to know before

Bringing My Quilt?

scissors

Have your quilt ironed and threads trimmed.

This makes the process to load your quilt onto the machine much quicker.

thread

Thread Choices

As a quilter, I generally pick a thread that blends the best overall for your design. If you have a specific thread color you want used, PLEASE tell me. I usually want thread to blend into the background, but sometimes a quilt just begs for the thread to stand out! So let me know your preferences.

measuring tape

Backing fabric needs to be 3-4" bigger than the top on all sides.

This means 6-8″ longer and wider than the quilt top. EXAMPLE: If you have a quilt that is 70″x70″, the quilt backing should measure 76″x76″ up to 78″x78″. The backing can be larger, but you need a minimum of 3″ on all sides to allow for loading the quilt and room to test the tension of the longarm machine before quilting.

heart

Be prepared to discuss your likes and dislikes in style.

This helps me know what your tastes are and how to finish your quilt to your satisfaction.

batting

Batting Options

You are welcome to send your own batting or purchase batting from me. Most quilters prefer to use 80/20 batting as it is warm and light weight and drapes well in the quilt. It is also machine washable. I always carry Hobbs 80/20 batting as well as Hobbs Washable Wool and polyester (thin to medium density). 

batting

NO Basting!

When preparing your quilt to send for longarm quilting, DO NOT baste the quilt sandwich together. Do not use spray baste, thread baste, or pin basting. I will have to undo any basting you have done in order to properly load your quilt onto my machine. The quilt top should be separate from the backing fabric and batting. They can be folded together or separate, but they should not be attached together by any means.  
If you have specific requests regarding the layout or setup of your quilt, please include these instructions in the “Note” section of the Longarm Quilting Form.
