Quilt Basting for hand quilting or machine quilting
I will assemble your quilt top, batting and backing on the longarm frame and baste it to hold the layers together so that you can quilt it by hand or on your domestic machine. Much easier than trying to make your quilt sandwich on the floor and pin or spray basting!
.005 – .01 per square inch
I maintain an extensive inventory of thread colors and types, including King Tut, Omni, So Fine and Bottom Line from Superior Thread and Glide from Fil-Tek. Price depends on the amount of thread used.
You may supply your own batting or for your convenience (and mine), I offer a variety of 96 inch wide to 120 inch wide batting which is available by the yard. I carry Quilters Dream, Hobbs, Warm and Natural cotton and cotton /poly blends, and wool. Prices range from $10-12 per yard.
For your convenience, I offer a collection of several 108” wide traditional backings and an large collection of 108” wide batik backs from SewBatik.com.
SewBatik wide batik is available through long arm quilters, on line at SewBatik.com and at quilt shows where SewBatik is vending. It is a lovely, soft batik. I have samples of the currently available 44/45 inch and 104/108 inch batiks in my studio. I will order it for you, or if you order online or at a quilt show, please include my Long Arm Associate number LAP-1433 with your order. The current price is the same as on the website $19.98 per yard.
I will trim your quilt without additional charge and return excess backing and batting to you. Please confirm the desired “trim at” distance (even with quilt top, 1/8 inch beyond, etc.)
I am happy to finish your quilt for you by binding it. I do both straight and bias binding cut at 2 ½ inches, folded and pressed in half. The binding is attached to the front of the quilt by machine, then wrapped to the back and sewn down by hand with a blind stitch.
Your binding options:
Full binding, machine applied and hand stitched to finish
You supply the fabric and I will make the binding, attach and hand stitch $ 0.38 per linear inch
Make and attach
You supply the fabric and I will make the binding, machine attach it so that you can hand stitch it down (19 cents per linear inch)
You provide the binding and I will attach it by machine so that you can hand stitch it down (11 cents per linear inch).
If your quilt needs pressing, and squaring, repairing, and so forth I am happy to give an estimate of the time needed. $20 per hour
I accept cash or check, due upon receipt of the finished quilt. Mail orders require a 50% deposit.
