Machine Quilting
BASTING SERVICE: I will sandwich the top, batting & backing together. The charge is $40 for horizontal basting at 4" interval regardless of the size of top. Backing needs to be squared and at least 4" larger than the top on all sides.

OVERALL PANTOGRAPH QUILTING: Price starts at .015 cent per square inch (use width x length of your quilt). Example: 60" wide x 80" long= 4800 sq. inches, then multiply x .015 cent per sq. inch = $72.00. This is for one overall simple pantograph pattern edge to edge on the entire quilt OR it can be simple meandering over the entire quilt. Cost will increase as pattern becomes more detailed.

OVERALL PANTOGRAPH WITH ONE BORDER: Price begins at .02 cents per sq. inch. One overall simple pantograph pattern edge to edge OR meandering over the entire quilt and includes a simple design with one border around the quilt.
CUSTOM QUILTING: Price begins at .03 cents per inch. Includes custom work such as shadowing quilted applique, circles, crosshatching, fans, etc. Price will increase for more detailed and extensive work. Each custom quilt is different so we can discuss what your needs are.

Partial Binding: .09 cents/linear inch - Binding is brought by customer (2 1/2" wide) pressed and ready to go. I will sew your binding to the quilt top front when finished (add all 4 sides then multiply by .09). Please add 16" extra fabric so I can miter the corners. Sorry but I do not offer binding service for backside.

BACKING: Backing is supplied by customer. I now sell and have all the samples of 108" wide batik backing from SewBatik for your larger quilt tops to choose from. If I order the fabric for you I will cover the shipping costs. Please check out their website to see all the beautiful fabrics they have.
* If you choose to bring backing, please don't forget to add 4" extra to
each side of your quilt top for your backing.
* Be sure to square (true) your backing before you come as I will load your backing as you bring it.
