If you have a design in mind let me know, or have me choose a design for you to complement your quilt top. Some options are listed for you.
Pantographs and overall designs:
Edge to edge pantographs designs with Quilt Path. Many designs to choose from.
Custom/complex overall designs:
May be done free hand, by use of templates. or Quilt Path. Block designs, borders, sashings, cornerstone, feathers, wreaths, echo quilting.
A heavier much more detailed quilting with a more traditional feel or modern. May include many techniques such as, block motifs, small background work, and use of templates, rulers, faux trapunto, and separate border designs.
To be determined after viewing quilt top.
Trapunto is the art of using a high loft batting, stitching around the design to be highlighted. The top is then removed from the quilting machine and the excess batting is very carefully cut away. The quilt is then remounted with the backing and the batting of choice and the quilting is finished with very small meandering. This makes the design really stand out.
I use a variety of quality threads, including specialty threads.
You may purchase my batting or provide your own (subject to approval)

Quilting is priced by the style of the design and the size of the quilt. Prices start at 0.02 (2 cents) per square inch.
Prices will vary according to the technique and the complexity of the design. I have a minimum charge $50.00. To estimate the quilting costs simply multiply the length by the width of your top.
