Every quilter I know has at least one UFO (unfinished object). These UFOs take up too much room and may keep you from starting new projects because you feel guilty about the accumulating pile of blocks and tops. Worst of all, they are an annoying reminder of gifts that were never given. (Of course, you always have the option of giving that baby quilt to your first grandson... even if he's 25 now.)
The best way to guarantee your satisfaction with your finished quilt is to bring well-prepared backings, battings, and quilt tops. See "Prepping your quilt" below for suggestions. Quilt preparation service is also available.
Quilting is priced by the square inch (width x length). Starting prices for each kind of quilting are listed below. All prices include the use of 1 solid color thread. A charge of $2 is added for each additional color change.
(Minimum charge is $60)
A single pattern is stitched on the entire quilt top (including borders) from left to right / top to bottom. A variety of designs are available.
(Minimum charge is $90)
Choose from a variety of pattern designs to enhance your quilt and emphasize specific elements, including blocks, sashing, multiple borders, and corners.
Customer provides binding ready to be applied. Binding is priced by the linear inch (perimeter measurement). There will be additional charges if I need to make the binding or trim the quilt before the binding can be applied. See Quilt Prep below.
