Some frequently asked questions with answers:
Please note I am no longer accepting quilts. I am officially retired.
1). Do you make t-shirt or clothing quilts for people? No, I do not make t shirt quilt for people. I simply Do not enjoy working on these, so I have stopped taking them in as commissioned quilts.
2). Can you recommend someone that make and finish t-shirt quilts? Yes! Google ‘Project Repat’.
3). What do I need to do to prepare my quilt for long arm quilting by you? You should trim the threads from the front and back of the quilt top. Batting and backing should be 8” longer and at least 6” wider than the finished size of the top to allow for proper loading onto my long arm machines. The top and backing edges should be squared up and pressed, wrinkle free.
4). Yes I will piece your backing yardage for you at the charge of $15 per seam.
5). Do you sell batting? Yes, I do stock several different sizes and types of batting which I am happy to use in your quilt if you haven’t purchased batting already. I typically stock 100% cotton batting in both white and natural colors, 80/20 blend in black, wool batting as well as Quilter’s Dream Green which is made from recycled plastic soda bottles. Each is priced competitively with what is available on the market today. Sold per yard or by the foot.
6). What type of thread do you use? I love using OMNI and OMNI-V threads. Thread is included in the cost of my quilting and I do not use customer provided threads when I quilt. I do stock over 200 thread colors and options in my studio to choose from.
7) Do you trim and square up the quilt after quilting? Yes I can if desired, and no extra charge. Leftovers are returned to you.
8). Can you add binding to the quilt for me? Yes, if you provide the yardage I can make and attach the binding to you quilt including mitred corners for a fee which varies depending on the quilt size. You can choose to have me finish the binding by machine or finish sewing the binding down to the back by hand yourself.
