Longarm Quilting Services


To calculate the price of your quilting you will need to measure all four sides of your quilt top.  You will use the longest of the length x the width. You will then take that figure and multiply it times 0.020. This will give you the total of the edge to edge quilting charge.

REMEMBER this figure does not include batting, nor thread, only the quilting itself.
Quilt Preparation

  • Have BACKING cut at least 10 inches larger than your quilt top.
  • Lay your quilt out on a flat surface and verify that the quilt (especially the
  • borders) lay flat.
  • Have quilt top trimmed to final finished size. We will not "cut-down" a quilt
  • top.
  • Remove all excess loose threads.
  • Remove all pins, buttons and/or other embellishments.
  • Have quilt top and backing fabric completely pressed, making sure all
  • seams are pressed flat.
  • Use one safety pin to mark the top of the quilt top.
  • Have ALL exteriors seam endings back_stitched to prevent them from
  • pulling open. This also applies to the backing fabric if it has been pieced.

Fullness and/or puckers within a quilt and its borders cannot be quilted out. Although we try our best, we cannot guarantee that puckers and tucks will not be sewn in. The flatter your quilt lays, the better the finished results will be.
