Email and Postage:
I have considerable experience arranging quilting projects while using email and the postal service and never meeting the customer in person. In this regard I normally have the initial discussion with the customer by telephone or email and if required I send examples of pictures, patterns and fabric for your consideration via email. Once this has been determined and once I receive the tops usually via the postage service I review the quilts and then provide a formal quote. Once agreed the completion date is advised and we progress from there.
The backing fabric and the batting (if provided) should be at least 4” larger than the quilt top on all four sides.
The backing needs to sit flat and square. If needing to join the backing it is suggested that the selvage edges along seams be removed.
For good colour balance it is suggested that the backing fabric blend with the top.
Threads used for quilting are normally the same for top and the bottom. Variegated threads are often used.
If you are providing your own batting please ensure that there are no bulky seams. It is suggested that the edges needing joining be abutted and zig zagged together or that a batting tape is utilised.
Please trim all threads on the back of your quilt top as these can show through when quilted.
It is also suggested that the quilt top and backing be ironed and gently folded prior to arrival for quilting to avoid additional costs associated with pressing.
Quilting costs are calculated on a pre determined fee per square foot of the quilt top measurements. The calculation includes measuring the quilt length x the quilt width then dividing by 144 to give the square foot measurement.
Depending on the size of the quilt a small loading fee may be applied.
Costs for batting are based on the same measurements as the quilt top. A varied range of battings are available.
If you wish your quilt to be professionally quilted or just seek an initial quote please do not hesitate to contact me in any of the following ways: telephone 0429024299 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
