Quilt preparation is important to the outcome. Quilts should be pressed with attention to the seams and threads trimmed.
Seams on pieced backing should run horizontal for best results. Backing and Batting should measure a minimum of 4-6 inches wider on all 4 sides and not more than 8 inches.
To avoid wavy borders, take a measurement horizontally at top, middle and bottom of quilt. Average these three measurements and cut top and bottom border to that measurement. Work in fullness if necessary. Turn quilt and repeat the measurements (including top and bottom border) for length of quilt, measure and cut border for length. Work in fullness if necessary. Repeat for each additional border. This will keep your quilt square.
It is preferred that minky backing is not pieced.
All over design, Edge to Edge (e2e) starts at .0175 per square inch (psi) and increases depending on density of quilting design. Quilting time and thread usage are determined by quilt design density. Addition of border corner designs will be at an additional charge.
Minimum charge for small items is $40. However, you can combine multiple small items on a single backing and batting.
Custom Quilting services are available. Estimates will be given at intake.
Backing and batting larger than 6-8 inches on all sides should be trimmed of additional fabric or batting. Additional charges will apply if quilt top or back requires pressing other than normal fold creases or threads trimmed in instances where it will affect the quality of the quilting. Please consult with us if you have any questions on your quilt prep!
