Using my Innova Autopilot long arm quilting machine I can finish your piece within a couple of weeks. I will notify you as soon as it’s completed.
How do I prepare my quilt for quilting?Preparing your quilt for machine quilting. Piece your top carefully. The flatter the top is, the better it will quilt up. Trim away any stray threads on the top as well as the backing. Press your top and backing carefully. Your backing will loaded onto the machine with the seams running horizonta Backing must be at least 4” longer on all sides. Ensure your backing is square (90degree corners parallel to sides). Wonky edges are hard to attach to the quilting machine. Don’t pin or baste your quilt. If your top and or back is directional, mark the top edge with a pin and a sticky note stating so. Please confirm that I have this written on your worksheet. Remove any embellishments. Reattach them after the quilting is complete. Leave the cutting of scalloped edges until after the quilting is complete. Stay stitch 1/8” around pieced border to prevent seams from opening. Remember, that I can attach your binding while it is on the long arm, for a very reasonable rate. It will save you time! Talk to me about this service!

Do you offer bindings?This service is offered at an hourly rate of $30/hour. Most clients bring a binding that they have made to attach to the quilt. I prefer a 2.25" strip folded in half and ironed.
