Quilting service is charged by the square inch measurement of the quilt top.
i.e., (Width x Length) x pattern price.
Example: Quilt Top measures 60" x 80" = 4800 square inches.
Cost for a 2 Cent Pattern is (4800 x .02) = $96.00
(Special Note: Quilt backing & batting must be 4" larger than the quilt top on all 4 sides)
Custom & Heirloom
Borders: $10 for a border
Do not baste any of the layers together.
Please do not cut scallop borders.
You may mark the scallops and cut them after the quilt is returned to you. Quilt Top
All seams should be pressed flat. Clip loose threads.
(Don't worry too much about top threads. I am happy to take care of those for you.)
Indicate the top of the quilt top and backing with a safety pin or note.
All fabric should be clean and free of odors or pet hair.
Backing and Batting should be 8" longer and 8" wider than the Quilt Top.
(An extra 4" is needed on each of the 4 sides for mounting to the frame.)
Indicate the top orientation of the backing with a safety pin.
Some backings like minky or polar fleece have a nap.
The backing should be even and straight as much as possible.
Please send the batting instructions with your quilt.
Some batting requires close quilting of 2" to 4", while others allow up to 6" to 11".
Quilt spacing is important when choosing your pattern style and size.
If packaged batting needs to be trimmed, we will do that free of charge.
(All trimmings will be returned with your quilt.)
Preparing Your Quilt

[(Width + Length) x 2] = Linear Inches. Multiply this total by the service charge.

Determine amount fabric required:
