Free motion Free-motion quilting: this process may include meandering, loops, swirls, hearts, stars and many other informal, free-motion patterns. Usually the most economical way of finishing your quilt.
Edge to edge Edge-to-edge quilting: this is a continuous-line design that covers the entire quilt, regardless of the patchwork pattern, borders or sashing. The pattern is repeated several times across each row. This type of quilting is economical and quite durable for quilts that will be loved and used.
Custom quilting Custom quilting: we will work closely with you to develop just the right quilting design for your top, based on the design of your blocks, sashing and borders. Multiple designs might be used, as well as close stippling, feathers, echo quilting, stitch-in-the-ditch, crosshatching or outlining.

Machine basting: this service eliminates the tedious hand-basting process that most quilters go through. We quickly baste the three quilt layers together, usually about 4” apart.

Thread: We use high-quality Superior™ polyester or cotton thread in all of our production quilts. Choose from hundreds of gorgeous colors, including a wide selection of variegated threads.

Backing: You may provide your own backing (no bedsheets, please!) or we can special-order extra-wide backing to enhance your quilt top. See our “Quilt Preparation Guidelines” for further information.

Batting: We recommend high-quality Hobbs™ batting. Our favorite is an 80% cotton, 20% polyester batting, and it quilts up nicely, for an "antique" look after laundering. We can also supply a beautiful Hobbs PolyDown Plus 100% polyester batting. Other high-quality batting may be special-ordered, or you may provide your own batting. However, please do not expect us to use low-quality batting – neither of us will be happy with the finished quilt!

Binding: Should you desire, we can complete your quilt with a quality binding process. Solid color binding is available, or you can provide fabric for binding to match your quilt top or backing.
