Longarm Services

Why send your quilt to be longarmed?

Pricing

Cost for Edge to Edge: starts at $0.018 per square inch, minimum of $50 for any quilt. Most patterns I have will stay at this price, unless it is very complex.

Cost Combination of Custom and Edge to Edge: starts at $0.025 per square inch, minimum of $50.

Cost Custom: starts at $0.045 per square inch, minimum of $50.

Additional costs: (May not apply to your order)

  • Needle and Thread Fee: Flat fee of $5.

  • Batting: I have available both 80/20 blend, and 100% cotton. I charge $0.30 per linear inch, and always cut 8 inches more than the shortest side to ensure enough space.

  • Machine binding back to front: $0.20 per inch.

  • Custom PS design: $20/hour.

  • Backing seam: $15.00 for each seam.

  • Most thread colors are included in the price. (Metallic, special-order variegated, etc. are an additional fee.)

  • Jump the line: Additional 25% of total quilting fee- this means I will move your quilt to the front of the line! Great for last minute finishes.

 

I can quilt just about any design you have in mind. I already have a large design library from you to choose from, but if none of them suit you, you’re welcome to find a design you DO love. I will bill you $10 towards the design. If you can’t find anything that strikes your fancy, let’s talk and I’d be happy to try and design it for you myself!

To take a look at what I have, feel free to look at my design catalog here.

If you’d like to find a different design, Urban Elementz and My Creative Stitches are both great resources!

Process

Curious about how it will go? Here’s a rough timeline.

  • You have a wonderful quilt top and backing (possibly batting too!) that you’re ready to get finished

  • You fill out the contact form by clicking the button above

  • I contact you to discuss details (quilting design, thread color, etc.)

  • We settle on a drop off/meetup time for your top to exchange hands, or your mail me your quilt

  • I get your quilt top home and loaded on the frame, and I do my quilty magic

  • I send you an invoice (and a photo if you want!)

  • You pay it

  • We arrange a quilt hand off (or I mail it back to you)

  • Your heirloom is ready!

Sending in Your Quilt Top

When you’re ready to send in your quilt:

  • Snip all excess threads.

  • Iron the top and backing thoroughly.

  • Make sure batting and backing are at least 4 inches longer than the quilt top on all four sides.

  • Top should be squared and pressed.

  • Mark the top of the quilt and backing if you have a preference.

Turnaround time (for edge-to-edge) is 7-10 days from arrival of the quilt and agreement of details (design, thread color, etc); if you need it faster please let me know! Once I receive your quilt I will contact you to discuss design, thread, and additional choices if needed.

Backing

Your backing needs to be at least 4 inches longer than your quilt top on all four sides. For example, if you had a top that was 64” x 72”, your backing should be (at a minimum) 72” x 80”. The machine needs that extra space to attach to the leaders and enders, as well as for test stitching for tension. If you’d like your backing oriented a certain way, feel free to mark the top of both quilt and backing with painters tape.
