Edge to Edge Quilting
Edge to edge quilting is a great option if you're looking for a quick turnaround and affordable price. A design of your choice will be repeated across the whole quilt, for a clean, uniform look. Great for utility quilts that will be washed and well-loved for years to come! See some of our design options on our gallery page.
Price: $0.015 - $0.03 per square inch depending on design density
Turn Around Time: Approximately 1 - 2 weeks
Semi-custom or “light custom” quilting is a good choice for those who want more a bit more detail on their quilts. This option would include a central edge-to-edge pattern of your choice, with separate designs in the borders & sashing, or other computerized block designs repeated across the quilt. Little or no stitch-in-the-ditch is included in this range. See examples on our gallery page.
Price: $0.03 - $0.05 per square inch
Turn Around Time: Approximately 3-4 weeks

Want to send us your quilt? We offer shipping service! Just send us your lovely quilt & backing, we’ll quilt it with the design & thread of your choice, trim it up and get it on its way back home. Here’s how to get your quilt ready for quilting:
Backing should be 6” larger than your quilt top on all four sides (ex. if your quilt is 60” X 80”, we need your backing to be 72” x 92”)
All layers should be separate (quilt top, batting, and backing) - they have to be loaded individually, so please don’t baste
Quilt top & backing should be pressed well so seams are nice & flat
Please trim the extra threads away from the back of your quilt - especially dark threads behind light fabrics
If your quilt has borders, measure through the center of your quilt, then cut borders to that exact measurement. (If you haven’t done it that way before, click here for a great tutorial!) If borders are sewn on and then trimmed to fit, they won’t lay flat on the longarm, and this can result in puckering and pleats.
We offer several different types of Hobbs batting options, or you’re welcome to send your own. Just make sure it’s a good, quilt shop quality batting - feel free to check with us prior to sending if you’re unsure. Click the title to learn more about each of the battings we carry:
