Quilting Services

Preparing your quilt top:
  • Do not pin or baste the quilt layers together
  • Press seams so they lie flat, being careful not to stretch the fabric
  • Remove all loose threads and pins.  Do not add embellishments until after the top has been quilted
  • Check ALL seams to be sure they are secure, especially those along the outside edges.
  • Square-up and trim the quilt top to it's finished size.  The quilt will not finish square unless it is square to start with
  • If there is a distinct top and bottom, place a safety pin at the top - especially if choosing a directional backing or pantograph
  • Press quilt top and fold carefully to prevent wrinkles
Backing:
  • Backing fabric must be 100% cotton.  Please do not use bed sheets
  • Backing must be 8" longer and wider than the top (4" on each side) after it has been squared up
  • Be sure to remove selvages from seam, and press seams open so they will lie flat
  • If pieced - use 1/2" seams and press open
Batting
  • You may provide your own batting, or I can provide 100% cotton Warm 'n Natural, or Hobbs 80/20 at market cost
Payment
  • No deposit is required unless I am providing batting or fabric
  • I accept cash or money order only
NOTE:  If you are shipping a quilt top, please enclose it in a plastic bag, and use a box big enough that will hold the completed quilt with batting

Pricing:  quilting is charged by the square inch (length x width)
               binding is charged by the linear inch (add length of 4 sides)
