Longarm Quilting Services

edge to edge quilting

Edge-to-Edge Longarm Service - $.025/Square Inch

Also known as E2E, this longarm option is for one design or pattern across the entire quilt – from one edge to the other edge.

Sometimes you will see quilters offering B2B quilting services. This is Border to Border, which is sometimes seen as custom quilting. I list them as the same thing, and at the same price.

Custom Longarm Service- Starting at $.04/Square Inch

My custom longarm service includes free motion quilting and ruler work. This is offered when looking for a different design in each block or in different sections of the quilt. Prices can vary based on the density of the quilting and the intricacies of the stitching design. Ask for Details!

binding by longarm

Binding by Longarm Service- $.10/Linear Inch

Yes, I really can bind your quilt using my longarm! If you have the binding prepared, I can attach it to the front of your quilt for 10 cents per linear inch.

I also offer services to make your binding, attach binding to the back of the quilt, and even do the full binding (create binding, attach to the quilt, then machine stitch on the opposite side). Prices vary on these options. Ask for details!

 

 

Did you know we offer free return shipping on orders over $100?  You pay to have your quilt shipped to me, and I will include the return shipping, at no charge to you!

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).

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.
