Quilting Options

Basting

Basting allows hand quilters or home machine quilters to have us put the layers of their quilt together for them. Large stitches are easy to remove once the quilt is complete.

Edge to Edge

  • Edge to edge designs span the length and width of the quilt
  • Edge to edge designs will be repeated in rows to produce an allover design on the quilt top

This edge to edge method of longarm machine quilting is popular due to the lower cost. There are many designs to choose from. 

Custom

Custom borders with an edge to edge interior is another option for quilters.

Quilt Preparation

  • Check to be sure all seams are secure. You may want to stay stitch around your quilt within 1/4″ to ensure seams do not pull apart when quilted.
  • If your quilt is directional, please pin a note to mark the top of the quilt.
  • Remove all buttons or other embellishments.
  • Press the quilt top and backing. Fold and hang on a hanger when you bring your quilt in.
  • Quilt top and backing must be brought in as separate layers, not already sandwiched together.
  • We reserve the right to refuse unfamiliar backing fabrics such as sheets or decorator fabrics.
