long arm quilting

We understand that your heart, soul, and time go into finishing a quilt top. Our goal is to complete your quilt with beautiful quilting, and a little of our own heart and soul.

Long Arm Quilting Services:

Quilting

Pricing is based on the size of your quilt and the complexity of the quilting pattern. We charge by the square inch, with a minimum charge of $40.00.

To figure a rough estimate of the cost of quilting your top, multiply the length of your quilt by the width of your quilt. This will give you the total square inches of your quilt. Then multiply the total square inches by the price per inch of the category of quilting you select.

For example, a quilt that measures 60 x 72 = 4,320 square inches. 4,320 square inches x .02 cents per inch = $86.40.

I offer two different categories of quilting:

  1. Simple Edge to Edge – this is one simple pattern over your entire quilt with one thread color. Cost for this category is 2 cents per square inch.
  2. Semi-Custom – this is a combination of a simple overall design along with a different design for a custom border. Cost for this category can vary from 2.5 cents per square inch to 5 cents per square inch.

These prices do not include thread, batting, or other services.

Batting

We offer quality 80% cotton/20% polyester batting or you may provide your own. The price per yard for our batting is $10 per yard. If you provide your own batting, please make sure it is at least 6-8 inches larger than your quilt top.

Backing

Your backing fabric needs to be at least 6 inches larger than your quilt top. If you do not have any backing fabric, we can help you select some. We prefer that you seam the backing yourself.  If your backing fabric requires us to seam it, there is a minimum $10 charge for that. If multiple seams are required, there will be an additional $5 charge per seam.

Binding

If you'd like us to bind your quilt, we offer the following services.

  1. Basic - You provide the binding fabric, we will trim your quilt, make the binding, and machine sew it on the front with mitered corners. You will have to attach the binding to the back of the quilt using your preferred method. The charge for this service is 10 cents per linear inch.
  2. Hand Finished - You provide the binding fabric, we make the binding, machine sew it on the front with mitered corners, and hand-sew the binding on the back. The charge for this service is 25 cents per linear inch.

Preparing Your Quilt

To assure a quality finished product and minimize your cost, please follow these basic guidelines:

  1. Your top must be clean.
  2. Press your top well making sure all seams are pressed flat to prevent puckering.
  3. Trim and remove threads.
  4. Remove pins and basting threads.
  5. Square-up and trim your quilt to its final size. It should measure the same amount in three places in both directions.
  6. Measure and press the backing fabric. It should measure 6-8 inches larger than your top.
