Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some answers to the questions we receive the most about our services.
If we missed anything, please do not hesitate to contact us. We’ll be happy to help
How much will this cost?
I charge 1.5 – 2.5 cents per square inch for edge to edge quilting, depending on the complexity and density of the longarm pattern. Complex or higher density patterns require more time and thread to stitch the pattern. High quality quilt thread is included. Minimal ironing is included if needed from shipping.
Here is a simple way to calculate the size of your quilt:
If your quilt top is 60 inches x 80 inches, multiply 60×80=4,800 square inches. Now multiply 4,800 by 0.0175 for the total of $84 for quilting.
There is a minimum charge of $45.00 for any quilting. The maximum size that fits on my longarm is a king size quilt, or 123”.
7.25% sales tax will be added to your service invoice if you purchase batting or fabric.
What is the turn around time?
Once I receive your quilt top, it is added to the quilting que. I will email you an estimate invoice for your approval. Once approved, your quilt will be quilted in the order it arrived, usually 1-2 weeks. Once completed, you will receive a final invoice by email with the total amount due. Upon payment, your quilt is carefully packaged and promptly shipped back to you or you can schedule a pick up time. Delivery is available for local residents.
What if I don’t know what longarm design to choose?
I offer a variety of digital edge-to-edge designs. The design pattern is stitched row by row over the whole quilt. Click here to see quilting design patterns.
Don’t see the design you want? No problem, you can search the internet for the perfect pantograph. Here are some great places to start: intelligentquilting, quiltscomplete.com, annebrightdesigns.com, willowleafstudio.com and urbanelementz.com or let me know the pattern that you’re looking for. I’m willing to split the cost of the pantograph with you and add the cost to your invoice. Let me know if this is something you’d like to consider
What kind of batting should I use?
Batting is a critical component of your finished quilt and your choice of batting greatly depends on the purpose or use of your quilt. I offer a variety of Premium Hobbs batting for purchase by the inch so you only buy what you need.
- 80/20 Premium cotton poly blends are composed of long staple cotton fibers and fine polyester creating a strong, longwearing batting. I carry this in 96” and 120” wide, natural.
- 100% premium cotton will give the traditional flat look and holds true to its shape. Cotton is a breathable fiber and provides warmth and comfort. I carry this in 96” wide, bleached. I recommend bleached for white or light quilts.
- Polydown Plus batting is made of very fine, white, denier polyester which allows for a soft feel and lovely drape. It’s bonded to resist bearding and migration. It’s machine washable, non-allergenic, and maintains its loft. Not recommended for darker quilts as this batting may be visible at the stitches.
- 80/20 cotton poly blend 108” wide available in black upon request.
You are always welcome to provide your own high-quality batting. The batting will need to be slightly larger than your quilt top. An extra 3 inches on all four sides is sufficient.
$10.00 – $22.00 (depending on box size & weight) will be added to your invoice for return shipping.
I ship with USPS. Tracking and insurance on your shipment are highly encouraged. I recommend placing your quilt top, batting, and backing fabric in a plastic bag, like a large kitchen trash bag, in case the package should get wet in transit.
For local residents, I accept quilts in person. Call, text, or email me to schedule a drop off time.

What if my quilt top has buttons/embellishments…?
If your quilt will have buttons or embellishments, I ask that you wait until after the quilting service to attach them. This will ensure no damage to the longarm stitcher head and needle bar which would result in down time and costly repairs. No fun for anyone.
What methods of payment are accepted?
I accept cash, venmo, paypal, and personal checks. Your finished quilt will be ready for pick up or shipped after your payment clears.
