Drop Off Instructions


If you are a current client and know what to do, click here to download the form.


If you are a new client, some information about the way I quilt might be helpful.

    1)  When I quilt edge-to-edge designs, I do quilt off the edge to be sure that all quilt top fabric is included. 

    2)  If you finish your quilt with FOLDOVER binding (bring the backing to the front to form the binding)...Please let me know on the form.

           I will Not quilt off the edge if you use this style of binding so that your binding area is clean.

    3)  For custom quilting, there is a long, long line.  Call or email for information about custom work.

     4)  You may bring your own batting, or you may purchase from me.  (See Batting page for pricing and details.)

     5)  I give Friend Referral credits (ask me!)

     6)  I accept all payment types -- Check, cash and Zelle.  

             I also accept Venmo, PayPal, or credit card with an added merchant fee.

Drop Off Instructions

Please follow these stops to drop off your quilt for service, by appointment only, Monday through Saturday.

1.     Click here to Download, print, and complete the New Form prior to drop off.

        If you require a consultation, please call prior to your appointment 2O6-786-II23.

2.     Quilt Backing and Batting must be larger than the quilt top.

        Add an additional 4" to each of the 4 sides of back and batting.

                   (i.e. If your quilt top is 60" x 80", your backing & batting should be 68" x 88")

3.     Mark the top orientation of both the quilt top and quilt back with a pin or note.

4.     If you have a full stamp card, it should be submitted with the form at drop off.

5.     Call, text 2O6-786-ll23 or email [email protected] to schedule an appointment.


Backing

Backing and Batting should be as even and straight as possible.

If you pre-wash your quilt back fabric, re-measure the back to verify that you have 4" extra on each of the 4 sides.  Flannel especially can shrink to a size that is too small for the quilt top.


Quilt Back borders, pieced blocksas well as some plaids and strips are gladly accepted; however, these cannot always be perfectly lined up with the quilt top.


Minky or store-bought blanket or sheet - Please remove static with a spray-on fabric softener or other means.  (Static can affect the computerized longarm machine).  Store-bought blanket or sheet needs to have the hem removed on all sides.  Sheets are very tight woven and will have an occasional skipped stitch.


Backing & Batting must be larger than the Quilt Top.  

Add 4 inches to each of the 4 sides of both Backing and Batting.

Example:  Quilt Top 50" wide x 60" long

                 Quilt Back & Batting should measure 58" wide x 68" long

If packaged batting is significantly larger than the quilt top, it will be trimmed at the time of quilting and all pieces will be returned with the quilt. *


Batting - you may bring your own or you can check my pricing here.

*NOTE: PELLON packaged batting has been 2" to 4" smaller than the noted size on the printed package. If you have already purchased and will be submitting at drop off, please open the package and double-check the dimensions prior to your appointment.

Tips for the

best results

Pet hair and Strong pet odors should be removed prior to drop off.  Gently hand wash if pet odor is strong.  Thank you :-)

No vulgar words or pictures on quilt pieces will be accepted.

Spray starch or sizing gives incredible results!  It helps control fabric while cutting, sewing and pressing.  If the quilt top has wavy borders, uneven blocks or cuts are on the bias, starch or sizing prior to cutting and sewing can help with these issues.

Cut off the salvage edges when piecing the Quilt Back.  Salvage edges have a tighter weave and can feed unevenly on the quilting frame.  Finished results are better with these removed.

Tame Stray Threads that occur during piecing by using a pinking rotary blade.  (Thank you, Colleen, for that tip!)  Starch may also help.
