Custom Quilting

I enjoy every part of quilt making, from the piecing to the binding. I was unsatisfied with the results I got when I tried machine quilting on my standard machine.

I use a Bernina 830 on a Grace frame with Quilt motion software for all my quilting. This computerized system delivers consistent stitches and design and I can offer my services to other quilters at an affordable price.

If you are interested in having me custom quilt one of your quilts below is a little info:

I am currently offering pantograph quilting, which is one design over the entire quilt. I offer several designs and each can be reduced or enlarged to a quilting density level that you desire.

I have a $45 minimum fee because of the setup involved.

Prices start at $.015 per square inch, this is for a standard loose pantograph design.

If you would like more dense design: $.025 for a medium density, or $.035 for a very dense design.

Square your top and backing and make sure your seams all lay flat. This is very important to prevent pleats and puckers. Keep your quilt tops square by squaring your blocks as you go. If you don’t have a border on your quilt, it’s advisable to stay-stitch around the edges of your quilt top to prevent seams from stretching or coming loose. Quilt edges and borders that do not lay flat may cause tucks, pleats or fullness.
Press quilt top and backing well.

Trim any loose threads from the front and back of your quilt top.

Your quilt top should be free of embellishments or embroidery.

If there is a top side to your quilt top and/or backing, please mark it somehow.

Your batting and backing must be at least 4″ larger than your quilt top on all sides. For example, if your quilt top is 40 x 40, your backing and batting must be at least 48 x 48.

Do not pin or baste your layers together.

I will work personally with you to achieve the design that you want for your quilt, please contact me for a quote or if you have any questions.
