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 choose from with more being added all the time. *NOTE: The price per square inch is determined by the density and complexity of the design that is selected.
This type of quilting generally has blocks or sections of the quilt featured with more complex freehand designs and the border is sometimes quilted with a separate design. 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.

There is an additional charge for variegated thread that depends on the type of thread selected. Typically variegated thread costs around $10 extra/quilt.
