Long Arm Quilting
There are many ways to finish a quilt. You can quilt by hand, quilt by machine, or quilt by check ;-). Bring your finished quilt top and backing (we have backing for purchase if you need it). We will come up with a fabulous plan to finish your quilt. We will help you pick a pattern, thread and batting. There are endless options for quilting your quilt. Below are samples of quilts we have finished for people. You can see there are different styles, from least to most complicated. Prices will depend upon the complexity of the quilting. Email us, call us (828-484-7200), or send by messenger owl ;-).
We offer 2 types of quilting:
Edge to Edge
The same pattern is repeated throughout the quilt.
One pattern is used in one section of the quilt, while a different pattern is used some where else, for example, the border.
Basic custom is a good way to dress up the quilting just slightly without adding too much to the cost.
Preparing your quilt for Quilting:
Make sure your quilt top lays flat.
Clip any loose threads from your quilt top.
Check to be sure it is pressed well.
The backing needs to be 3-4" larger on all 4 sides than the top.
If the backing is not square, please provide 6-8" on all 4 sides.
Please press your backing with the seams open.
We carry a variety of batting choices but you can also bring your own batting.
Thread is also available in over 150 colors.
