QUILTING BY MACHINE
Thank you for your interest in our superlative design quilting by machine
using a Gammill Longarm Machine, which features precise stitches per inch.
This sate of the art machine provides wonderful quilting designs. Some
favorite quilting designs for edge to edge quilting are Chantilly Lace,
Double Rose, Feather, Hearts, Cotton Candy, Blowing Leaves, Wave, Clam
shell and for baby quilts we use stars and balloons. Or we can free hand
your quilt by meandering (jigsaw puzzle type all over quilting). We keep
dozens of hand-quilting templates in stock, which we use to hand-guide
our quilting machine. You can choose from our in-house quilting patterns
or, if you want a special quilting pattern, just send us a hand-quilting
template. If you so choose we will be glad to design a unique one for
you for a fee of $20. We can incorporate that quilting design where you
specify on your quilt with our quilting machine. All machine quilting
work is done by our company is guaranteed to be of the utmost quality!
Q. What are the costs associated with Machine Quilting?
A. The costs are as follows:
runs from $ 12.00 to $20.00 per square yard depending on the complexity
and density of the quilting you want.
To determine the square yardage of a quilt take the length of the quilt
in inches times the width of the quilt in inches divided by 1296. Example:
80" x 90" = 7200 sq. in. 7200 divide by 1296 = 5.55 sq.
Charge: (any size) $25.00
Charges: $ 4.00
(Machine Applied/Hand Turned) $1.75inear foot
$25 for the first quilt, $10 for each additional quilt shipped at the
Natural Batting: $8.00 per yard or you can supply your own.

Q. What Guidelines must be followed when I send a quilt to be
A. Batting and Backing should be cut 6"but no more than 8" longer
then the quilt's length and width. Example, if your quilt is 80"
x 90", the batting and backing should measure 86" X 96".
If you are sending your own batting, keep in original packaging and I
will cut to size. Make sure
that both the top and backing are squared
with no ragged edges. Cut off selvage on seams before they are sewn. Selvage
seams cause extra bulk and can cause backing to pucker. Also, press open
seams on the backing, this will help reduce the bulk. It is best not to
have on seam down the back of the backing. It is preferred to have seams
run horizontal to the top and bottom of quilt unless the quilt is to be
quilted vertically. Contact me if you have any questions. When adding borders,
measurements should be taken across the center in two or three places
for both the width and length. If these measurements are different from
that of the outer edge, accidental stretching has occurred. Remember,
to keep the finished quilt straight and square, you must measure the centers.
Use pins to cut down on stretching. If your quilt is not square there
may be puckers in the quilting. Please snip any loose thread and salvages
and check your tension before sewing your quilts improper tensions can
result in weak seams.
An additional labor charge of $15.00 per hour will be added for any miscellaneous
work, example; repairing seams, squaring up backing, piecing backing and
