Longarm Quilting Services

Longarm Quilting Services
We have a selection of quilting patterns and
designs, including blocks, borders, sashing
and Edge-to-Edge designs. We will work
with you to help you choose the designs and
quilting thread that will turn your quilt top into
a treasured quilt.
Quilt Preparation
• Choose high quality, 100% cotton fabric.
Polyester blends can cause slipped or skipped
• Choose a print cotton fabric for the backing that
will blend with the top thread color. A different
color thread for the bobbin will usually show on
the top, creating unsatisfactory results.
• Backing fabric must be at least four inches
larger on all sides (total 8”
wider and 8” longer) than the pieced top. For
Queen/king size and larger, add a couple extra
inches. If your pieced backing is larger than
needed, do not trim it down; however, please be
sure that the ends are straight.
• The quilt top must lay flat. Measure your quilt
top across the top, bottom, and at the center.
These three measurements should be the
If not there may be puckers in your
finished quilt.
• Check to be sure all seams are secure. You
should stay stitch around your entire quilt to
ensure that seams do not pull apart.
• Remove selvages from backing seams. Press
backing seams closed and to one side. Clip all
stray threads from pieced top and back. Stray
threads will show through (shadow), especially
on light backgrounds.
• Use one safety pin to mark the top of the quilt.
Remove all other pins and threads, as well as
buttons and other embellishments.
• Quilt must be clean and free of any odors.
• Quilt top and backing fabric must be completely
pressed. All seams should be pressed flat.
Ensure that all seams are fully sewn. An open
seam could catch the foot of the machine and
cause disastrous results.
• Quilt top should be trimmed down to final
finished size. We will not cut or trim a quilt top.
• We reserve the right to refuse unfamiliar
backing fabrics such as sheets or decorator
• If you pre-washed the fabrics in your quilt top, it
is highly recommended that you pre-wash your
backing fabric also.
• Quilt top and backing must be brought in as
separate layers, pressed and neatly folded on a
• We will only use our batting and it is included in
the per square inch price.
These guidelines are to ensure that
we provide you the best possible
finished product.

Edge-to-Edge design that is $.021 per square inch

Fullness and/or puckers within a quilt
and its borders cannot be quilted out.
We can not guarantee that puckers and
tucks won't be sewn in. In some cases
excessive fullness in borders may
result in the quilt corners not being
square. The flatter your quilt top lays,
the better the finished quilt will be.
