Quilting For You
Pieced or Patchwork Quilts
Pieced or patchwork quilting is the most basic and common type of quilting. As its name suggests, these quilts are constructed by sewing pieces of fabric together.
Patchwork quilts can use any type of block or construction technique. From triangles to strips, squares to rectangles, and everything in between.
Pieced quilts are typically themed, but they don’t have to be. They can be scrappy, spontaneous and unplanned. Anything goes with this style. It is fun to take a pieced top and complete it with high quality quilting and watch it come alive!

Computerized Longarm Quilting

Trim and square sides and serge edges: Done after quilting complete for ease of binding and also provides flat base for a more professional binding : 10 cents per inch
Thread: We use top quality Glide and Omni threads (at this time is included in the cost of quilting)
Batting: We use Hobbs 80/20, Legacy Natural blend Premier 80/20 or comparable product (at this time included in the cost of quilting. You are welcome to provide your own batting, but the quilting cost will be the same).
** Backing - must be a minimum of 5 inches bigger on EACH side - so at least 10 inches longer and 10 inches wider that the top. You provide or we can purchase and be reimbursed at cost.
Helpful Hint: When putting borders on your quilt - measure the center of your quilt to get the size needed - not the edge you are adding it too - this will help achieve an accurate size and nicer fit for the border and prevent excess fabric, puckers and "pleats" when quilted. Longarm quilting can not "fix" uneven or fullness in borders and edges.
Finishing UFO services:
I will be happy to complete those quilt tops that may have been inherited, found at estate or garage sales, or that you may have started and are unable to finish. From checking and repairing seams, adding borders or putting that stack of blocks together, the top can be finished so you can use and enjoy it for years to come. Charges based on amount of work involved.
