finishWith an extensive collection of quilting patterns that will add dimension and texture to your quilts, I offer quality overall machine quilting services at reasonable prices. I have over twenty years of longarm experience, and several quilts that I have quilted have been published in books and magazines.

I have quilted numerous quilts for Red Crinoline Quilts, an online Civil War reproduction fabric shop. My customers send quilt tops from as far as California and Norway. My turn-around time is generally three to four weeks except during peak times at Christmas and graduation. Please contact me for details or to make arrangements to ship or bring your quilt tops to me for the machine quilting service you need.

Quilt Preparation

Your backing should be 8″ to 10″ longer and wider than your quilt top and should be squared off so that there are no uneven edges. Use only cotton fabric (no sheets) for your backing. Choose your backing color with the front thread color in mind since the same thread color will be used for the front and back of your quilt.

If you are piecing your backing, please do not create a border on the back of the quilt. Add any extra fabric in the center of the backing, not on or near the edges.

Press your quilt top and backing and mark the top of your quilt and backing with a safety pin if it is directional. Be sure that you cut loose threads so they won’t show through on the top of your quilt.

I have Hobbs 80/20 Heirloom batting available, but if you provide your own batting, it also needs to be 8″ to 10″ wider and longer than your quilt top.

Do not baste your quilt sandwich together as each piece is loaded on the quilting machine separately.

And finally, save any embellishments until after the quilting is completed.
