I can help!
Allow me the privilege of finishing your treasured quilt!
The quilting services I provide are exclusively digital edge-to-edge designs. The quilting will be uniform across the quilt top traveling from one edge of the quilt to the other. My goal as a quilter is to make the quilting look custom by the way we carefully select the quilting design to match your quilt top.
I have many quilting designs/pantos which can be found in my edge to edge design library. Please note that the size and spacing of the designs may be modified to fit best for your unique quilt.
If the perfect panto is not speaking to you from these choices, that’s ok! There are many commercially available designs. You find the perfect design you love and I'll pay half! Most are available for $13 to $18 each. I do reserve the right to retain the panto for later use. Click on the link below to view digital designers. You can search for others too!
If this all seems a bit overwhelming or you just don’t know what you want, I can choose a design for you once I receive your quilt. I will verify my choice with you by visually showing you what that design looks like on the computer screen.
An easy calculation is used to determine the price of quilting your quilt top! Measure the Length and Width of your quilt top, Multiply those two numbers together, and then Multiply that result by .02. This represents a quilting price of 2 cents per square inch of the top.
Example: A quilt top that measures 60” x 80” = 4,800 square inches. 4,800 x .02 = $96.00
There is a minimum charge of $50. This means that a small quilt or table runner may need to be rounded up to the $50 minimum.
If you choose not to include your own batting with your top, I stock Warm & Natural 100% 90” cotton batting, which I sell at $9.00/yard + tax. Warm & Natural is the finest needle-punched cotton batting! This soft, natural cotton has never been washed or bleached with harsh chemicals.
Once quilted, machine wash your finished quilt in cold water and machine dry on low. A 3% shrinkage can be expected in the first wash with cold water. To achieve an antique puckered look, use warm water for 5% shrinkage. Note that batting purchased would be a separate charge not included in the square inch price.
I use Superior Magnifico 40 wt. 2-ply high-tenacity trilobal polyester thread. Designed for quilting, decorative stitching, and embroidery. Magnifico is a bold, strong thread created for quilting and embroidery. Magnifico is an extra-strength, high-sheen polyester that can handle the speed and tension of longarm and commercial machines, while displaying bold and beautiful shades of color.
Choose your thread color or I will choose for you. I attempt to match or blend thread color with the lighter areas of your quilt. Thread is included in the square inch price.
You are responsible for the cost of shipping your quilt top, backing and batting to me in Northern California, USA. I recommend you send these items in an enclosed bag to protect them against possible moisture in transit before placing it in a hard-sided cardboard box. Make sure the box is securely taped and labeled clearly.
I will return ship your quilt back to you in the manner described above via USPS Priority mail (using flat rate when possible/economical). Priority mail comes with $50 insurance and a tracking number. If you would like additional insurance, there is place on the intake form requesting I buy additional insurance on your behalf. The price of return shipping will be added to the overall price and is not included in the square inch price.
After I have finished quilting your quilt, packaging it for shipment, and determining all pricing, I will invoice you via PayPal. Please pay timely as that allows me to send your treasure back as quickly as possible!
I live in a State that requires I collect tax on materials (batting) and "fabrication" which quilting falls under. Yes, I know, I've checked and rechecked. This tax will be added to your invoice for a final total payable.
