Frequenly Asked ?'s

What is edge-to-edge quilting?
Edge-to-edge quilting is a quilting design that covers the entire quilt, regardless of quilt pattern, borders or sashings. The pattern is repeated several times throughout each row. This type of quilting is excellent for quilts that will be loved and used.

How is my quilt attached to the quilting machine?
The backing for your quilt will have a zipper attached to the head and foot ends and will be zipped onto the quilting machine. The quilt top is attached to a zippered leader at the foot end, and basted to a leader at the head end. Please stay stitch a scant quarter-inch around the outer edge of your quilt top to prevent seams from coming unstitched.

What batting is recommended?
Batting is your personal preference.

How much backing and batting should I provide?
If you provide your own backing or batting, it must be at least 5 inches larger on all sides, than the quilt top measurements. This allows for a gentle pull on the quilt top which enables the quilt to lie as flat as possible during the quilting process. It is better to have too much backing & batting than not enough. Please have your backing "squared". This means the head and foot measurements are the same as well as both sides the same length. Also, avoid selvages in your quilt top and backing as they cause puckering during the quilting process.

What about binding on my quilt?
If you would like us to bind your quilt, you must provide adequate binding ready to be applied to the quilt. We will machine stitch it to both sides of the quilt.

What type of payments is accepted?
Payments can be made through PayPal, money order or credit card. If you pay with money order your quilt will be sent back after we receive your payment. When we receive your quilt we will send you an e-mail invoice with the actual cost.
