Click here to see our current intake form.

Requirements

Your batting and backing must be a minimum of 4" bigger than your quilt top ON ALL SIDES. If your backing is too short it will either be returned to you or we will piece muslin to it at a cost of $15 per seam. If your quilt top is 60"x70", your backing should be 68"x78" or larger. We do not keep trimmings, they go back home with you.

Designs & Threads

We only offer edge to edge quilting at 2 cents per square inch, no custom quilting or free motion. We have a wide range of designs from the very simple meander to dense florals and modern geometrics. With over 150 thread colors and thousands of patterns available - if you can think it, we can probably quilt it.

If you chose a variegated thread, please add 15% to the base quilting charge.
