These are hand-guided, all-over repeating designs that are quilted over the entire quilt. This is the most economical way to quilt your quilt and these designs suit a wide variety of quilt styles and designs. They are not suitable for quilt tops that have been appliqued.We have a wide variety of pantographs for you to chhose from with more being added all the time.
These hand-guided freehand designs are like pantographs in that they go from edge to edge on your quiltl. Sometimes several designs or motifs are combined to create visual interest. They are free flowing and lend themselves to many different quilt styles.
This type of quilting generally has blocks or sections of the quilt featured with more complex freehand designs and then the border is quiulted separately. Generally there is very little or no ditch quilting but there may be some ruler work.
Custom longarm quilting involves many different techniques and designs to highlight the piecing on your quilt top. Ruler work, background fillers and extensive SID (stitch-in-the-ditch) are applied to create crosshatching, outlining applique, formal feathers and intricate background fillers. Special attention is paid to sashing, blocks and borders.
Perfect for home machine and hand quilters, your quilt sandwich is basted using large stitches that are easily removed later. You can choose 2", 3" and 4" basting. Perfect for those that do not want to use basting spray or pins to hold the layers together.

You provide the pre-made binding and I will attach it to the front of your quilt so you can finish the process at home by hand stitching it to the back. We will need to trim your quilt for this process.
$0.015 per inch
After sewing your binding to your quilt top we will hand stitch the binding to the back of your quilt. This charge is in addition to the charge for sewing the binding to your quilt top. Your binding will be turned to the back of the quilt and hand sewn down with an invisible whip stitch.

The following services may be required for successful quilting:
- squaring tops or backs to load and quilt accurately
- trimming threads from the quilt top so they don't show through
- securing seams that are coming apart
- adding fabric to the quilt top or backing if they are not large enough
If your quilt requires any of these services before being quilted I will advise you and give you the option to do what is required and return the quilt to me or have me complete these items for you.

We use a variety of top quality threads from Glide, Superior, Aurifil and Madeira. All these threads are specifically designed for longarm quilting. Threads are available in solid colours, variegated, cotton, polyester, matter or with sheen. We will coordinate or contrast the thread with your quilt top to showcase your hard work. There is an additional charge for variegated thread that depends on the type of thread selected. Typically variegated thread costs around $10 extra/quilt.
