Longarm Quilting Services – FAQ

I like to make my own quilt tops, but I’d rather have someone else do the quilting. Can you quilt my top for me?  I love to quilt!  With my Innova Longarm Quilting machine and 10 foot frame, I can do any quilt up to 105 by 105 inches.  I offer edge to edge designs, border to border with custom borders, or complete custom work.  All of my work is hand-guided, but for edge to edge and border to border, you can select a pattern from Urban Elementz and I will order the pantograph to quilt it for you. There’s no extra charge because I am trying to build up my library.  Please add 8 to 10″ to the length and width of your backing. All extra backing fabric and batting will be returned to you.

I want to quilt myself by hand or by domestic machine but I need to have it basted.  Can you do that?  Yes.  Basting was the part of quilting that I dreaded most until I got my longarm.  Let me know how you want it basted…I can do it with water soluble thread, or regular thread in a garish color to make it easy to remove.  I will do it herringbone style (a series of Z’s across the quilt to hold everything in place).

Am I required to buy batting from you?  No, I will quilt with your batting.  Please be sure to add at least 8-10″ to the length and width.  If you would like me to use my batting for your quilt, I offer Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting or Quilter’s Dream Wool and it will be $.004 cents/square inch (LxW).  I can also obtain other specialty battings (100% cotton, silk, etc.) so ask me for pricing.

If you do not want to provide a quilt back, I will purchase one for you.  The fabric will be $10 to $15 per yard…we can select something together.  I do not keep fabric in stock. Any excess will be returned to you with your quilt.

T-Shirt Quilts

I will turn your collection of t-shirts into a practical item that you can use to keep warm on the couch, in the stadium, or wherever you want.  I use the highest quality quilt-shop fabrics and materials so that your memories will be preserved for a lifetime.

T-shirt quilts are great for

  • Graduation gifts
  • Christmas gifts
  • Celebrate a sport, band, vacation, or other hobby
  • Remember a loved one who has passed away

When selecting your t-shirts:  

  • Always pre-wash and be sure shirts are clean.  DO NOT use fabric softener or dryer sheets because they will keep the stabilizer I use from working.
  • Send me the entire shirt OR cut out the image but leave a large margin because I will need to trim it down.
  • I can include sweatshirts and sports jerseys as well as t-shirts.
  • Each graphic image counts as a square. If a shirt has images on both sides, be clear about which image (or both) should be included in the quilt.
