My Story

After over 30 years in accounting and tax preparation, I retired and discovered quilting!

I took my first quilting class in 2005 and was hooked! In 2006, I purchased a Gammill Classic Plus long arm machine and had it computerized in 2015. I love to see how the right quilting design brings a quilt to life. 

Gifts

If you are looking for a unique gift, I can help you with that. I make quilts, wallhangings, table runners, pillow cases, pillows, mug rugs, casserole carriers, embroidered items and monograms. 



Tee Shirt Quilts

I charge $26.50 per block. This price includes preparing the shirts, adding French Fuse to the back of each square to keep them from stretching, batting, and quilting. 


For more information, please contact me.

Prices

Edge to Edge -

 Simple design - .015 cents per sq inch

Medium design - .020 cents per sq inch

Dense design - .025 cents per sq inch


Custom -  Price for custom quilting starts at $.08 per square inch and varies with each quilt. Custom Quilting includes stitch in the ditch, outline, border treatments, and any designs not considered edge to edge. 


 

Thread

Thread charges usually run between $5 and $10 depending on the density of the quilting design.  Specially thread may incur extra charges. I use the same thread for both the top and bottom. This gives me a better stitch and helps insure the quilt will not have "pokies". Please keep this in mind when planning your backing fabric. 


Batting


 I stock Hobbs 80/20. I supply it at competitive prices for your convenience. I charge by the inch to insure you don't have to purchase more than you need. You may supply your own, but I do reserve the right to refuse inferior batting that is not suitable for longarm quilting.


 Additional Charges - include any repairs, pressing, squaring the back, etc.. and will be quoted per quilt if needed 


Minimum charge is $50


How to Prepare Your Quilt Top for Machine Quilting

Quilt Top

  • Please do not embellish your top until after it has been quilted. (buttons, ribbons, etc.)
  • Quilt top should be neatly pressed both front and back with loose threads trimmed
  • Mark top edge of quilt. A safety pin works well for this.
  • Back stitch any seams that come to the edge of the quilt, and if you have any bias edges on the perimeter of the quilt, please stay stitch the edge with an I/8" allowance.
  • Quilt top must be clean and free of any odor or pet hair to prevent transfer to other quilts in the studio.

Border Tips

The most common problem encountered by machine quilters are borders with extra fullness that will not lay flat, causing tucks, pleats, or gathers during machine quilting.

  • Measure your quilt top in three places lengthwise: left, right, center. Add those measurements and divide by 3 to get an average.
  • Cut the two side borders to this measurement. Pin border to quilt at each end and center, ease to fit. Pin to distribute any fullness. Sew and press.
  • Repeat this process for the top and bottom borders.
  • Repeat for any additional borders.


How to Prepare Your Quilt Top for Machine Quilting (cont'd)

Backing and Batting

  • Your backing must be square (straight) for it to load properly on the quilting frame.
  •  Mark top edge of backing if fabric is directional. A safety pin will work for this.
  • The backing and batting must be 6 inches larger than the quilt on all sides. Example - 100x100 quilt top would require a minimum 106x106 backing and batting.
  • Remove all selvages from the seams of the backing. A larger seam allowance that is pressed open will give you a smoother finish and avoid the tendency for a backing seam to pleat or pucker.
  • It is impossible to perfectly center your backing so please allow for this when piecing your backing.
  • The backing should be neatly pressed.
