I do machine quilting for others in my home studio (no smoking, no pets) and have just upgraded machines, welcoming my Gammill Statler Stitcher to my studio.
If you’re interested in having me quilt for you, here’s what you need to know 🙂
Turn around time is currently approx. two weeks to one month.
I offer computerized edge to edge quilting as well as custom quilting services, using either hand guided stitching, computerized stitching, or a combination of both, depending on your quilt top and your design preferences.
**Please note: the quilting will show on your backing. I use thread that blends with the quilt top – just as a hand quilter would – and I use the same color for top and bobbin threads.
$50 minimum charge for all quilts
pricing includes thread and my work to sandwich/load the quilt
Edge to edge quilting: starts at 2 cents per square inch (L x W x .02) for basic open designs and pricing will increase depending on density
Custom quilting: prices are dependent on the complexity of the quilting desired and special requests such as thread color changes, adapting to appliqued designs etc. Please contact me for a consultation and estimate based on your particular quilt and design choices.
If you have a very small project such as a cushion cover, please contact me to discuss pricing.
PREPARING YOUR QUILT:
- Please have your seams completely sewn and secure at the ends, threads trimmed, and top squared and pressed so all seams are flat. These things will help your quilt top remain smooth and stable when pulled taut for quilting. As well, excessively wavy borders/edges can interfere with a satisfactory end result. If you are unsure of any of the above, please feel free to contact me with questions!
- Backing and batting: please cut each of these 8″ wider and 8″ longer than the quilt top itself, and ensure backing is squared and cut straight on all edges. I prefer that pieced backings have horizontal rather than vertical seams to ensure smooth loading on the long arm frame.
- I usually have batting available for purchase if you don’t have your own: Quilter’s Dream 80/20, Quilter’s Dream poly select, and Tuscany wool when available.
Please be sure your expectations fit within the scope of the service I offer before surrendering your handiwork to my studio 🙂
