|What is longarm machine quilting?
A longarm machine is a large sewing machine on wheels that is used to sew together the quilt top, the
batting, and the backing fabric into a quilt. In this process, the three pieces are loaded separately
onto rollers that keep them straight and flat for quilting. I use a Nolting PRO 24 ; a professional,
stitch-regulated, quilting machine, with the Intelliquilter IQ computerized system to make your quilt
top into a finished quilt. Services range from simple all-over quilting to complex custom patterns
placed carefully onto your top to mimic the hand quilting of years ago. Just recently I have begun a
rental service of my machines; you can check here for more details. Battings are available for your
convenience at reasonable pricing, and I can even bind your quilt for you for an additional fee. I offer
computer generated fabric labels for documenting your quilt, too - an important last step that I really
encourage, to keep details about the quilt and quilt maker known for future generations. Check out my
Label page for ideas.
|How much will my quilt top cost to get quilted?
Pricing for my quilting starts at $35, but is determined by the size of the quilt and the type of quilting
Size of the quilt:
Simply measure your quilt top in inches and multiply the length times the width to get the number of
Length x Width = Square Inches
