Longarm Information


I will sandwich your quilt.  You bring me the backing, batting, and top.  Backing fabric must be at least 6 inches bigger than your quilt top all the way around so that I can quilt the entire quilt.  You may stitch an additional 6 inches on the sides of your backing (these are called leaders) if needed or I can stitch them on and remove them when the quilting is finished for an additional fee.

I will measure your top.  Right now all I am able to offer is designs with stencils.  I'm working on edge to edge designs.  I hope to learn more every day and really aspire to offer more quilting techniques.

I only machine stitch binding.  I stitch it on the back fold it over and do a three step zig zag on the front.  I have also trimmed the back down to one inch bigger than the front and batting and have folded that so that it makes a binding and zigzagged it down.  Please see sample pictures.

I love to add a label to all my quilts.  Usually I take about a 8 inch square and fold it in half.  I baste it in one corner so that when the binding is sewn on, it will be sewn in place.  I use a special marker for labels to write information on them.

I do not provide batting or backing at this time.  It's my hope to offer batting and a neutral backing in the future.

Text or call 217-460-0838 to figure out a drop off time.  Quilts may be dropped off at Shelby County State Bank at the West Main Branch (between Pizza Hut and DQ in Shelbyville, IL).

I have a full time job and a family at home.  
Please allow 8 - 12 weeks or more turn around time.

***I will be limiting the number of quilts I'll be accepting in November and plan to not do any quilting in December.***

I'd love to put a picture of your quilt on my blog!
