I have many pantograph (edge to edge) designs and do freehand allover and custom ruler work. I'm happy to work with you to find the right style for your quilt and price point for your budget. I use a variety of threads from various manufacturers to get the right color and effect for your project.
Batting for long-arm machine quilting available in my shop: Warm & Natural Warm & White 80/20 (Cotton/Poly blend) Wool Thermore (for garments and table toppers)
I have a selection of widebacks (108" wide) to fit most needs. If you are unable to purchase and wash the wideback before quilting, you can opt to just use it straight off the bolt.
Preparing your quilt top: Please press and fold your quilt top neatly. I hang them upon arrival to the shop until they will be quilted.
The shop is pet-free and smoke-free. Please be sure you remove all pet hair and smoke odors before delivering your quilt parts.
If you are providing your own batting and/or backing, please make sure it is at least 6", each direction, larger than your quilt top. These should be folded individually as well. If using a flannel backing and the quilt top is quality quilting cotton, please consider washing the backing before bringing it in. The flannel will shrink at a different rate than the quilt top. When the quilt is laundered after use, it is desired to have a similar shrinkage rate of the entire quilt.
If the longest part of your quilt is less than 96", then it is preferred to load it sideways. The backing selvage should load along the rollers when at all possible to maintain the best tension. If a backing is pieced, the seam preferably is loaded along the rollers, not perpendicular to them, otherwise the seam builds up in the one spot and causes tension issues. If the quilting has a direction, then loading it sideways may not work. If you have any questions relating to the preparation of your quilt, please don't hesitate to contact me.
