THERE IS NOTHING LIKE A CUSTOM-MADE ITEM
LONGARM QUILTING SERVICES
You have worked so hard on your amazing project, so let me help you with the finishing touches. I free hand quilt on my Bernina Q 24, from a mini up to a king size.
Prices: I charge by the square inch in 2 different categories; edge to edge and semi-custom.
- Simple Edge to Edge over your entire quilt- this is one pattern over your entire quilt with one thread color. Cost is 3 cents per square inch.
- Semi-Custom – This is a combination of a simple overall design along with some custom borders, sashing and or block design. This varies from 4 cents up to 5 cents per square inch.
Example: A quilt which measures 60 X 70 = 3600 square inches X .03 (3 cents per square inch) = $108.
(All quilts - $40 for prep)
Backing: The backing fabric needs to be at least 6” inches wider and longer than your quilt top. It can be bigger but not smaller.
Batting: Your batting needs to be at least 4” inches wider and longer than your quilt top.
Thread: I have a large variety of threads and will try to match the color to your quilt top. My personal style tends to match the thread to the lightest fabric in your quilt, if there is heavy contrast I try to select a good neutral to blend the two colors. Let me know if you have a preference on thread color.
Binding: I can machine bind the binding starting at $30+ (depends on size). You will supply the fabric for this.
Quilt top preparation: To assure a quality finished product and minimize your cost, please follow these guidelines:
1. Your quilt top must be clean, threads clipped/removed and make sure the quilt top is pressed and lays flat to prevent puckering.
2. Square-up and trim quilt top and backing.
Please note: fullness, holes and puckers within a quilt top cannot be quilted out. I can not guarantee that puckers and tucks won't be sewn in. In some cases excessive fullness in borders may result in quilt top corners not being square. The flatter your quilt top is, the better the finished quilt will be.
Shipping: I live in Alaska and would be happy to receive your quilt by mail. I would recommend sending everything in a bag to protect against the elements during transit. (Address will be given once we have emailed)
Local Drop Off/Pick Up: If you are around the Anchorage, Alaska area you can drop off to my house. (Address will be given once we have emailed)
Payment: After the work is complete, I will invoice you via PayPal. Once payment is received I will then ship your quilt back. Timely payments will get your quilt back in your hands ASAP!

Most t-shirts, jerseys, sweatshirts, dresses, uniforms and pajamas can be used. If you have a material question, please ask! If you don't have enough clothes I can supplement fabric into your quilt. Every custom order is unique; these sizes and prices are subject to change.
Do you have clothes your children wore for a special event or have a favorite blanket you want to keep. When a loved one has passed a perfect way to remember and feel their presence is having a keepsake. A memory bear to hold or display is such a special way to keep these memories.
Bear measures 18 inches tall.
*Materials that can be used: shirts, onesies, flannel, jeans, slacks, dresses, thin blankets or sweatshirts.
Please send clean garments.
I will return any unused material but no scraps unless requested.
Baby items: 6-8 pieces for one bear. (Depending if they are sleepers or onesies)
Child items: 4-6 pieces for one bear.
Adult items: one large long sleeve men's shirt or 2 large long sleeve female shirts for one bear.
(If you don't have enough clothing items I can add coordinating fabric)
While it was made to be durable, this is a hand-finished item. Always use adult supervision when your little one plays with the bear. (Buttons are a choking hazard)
I am humbled that you are entrusting me with your treasure and I will treat it with the care it deserves. I look forward to working with you!
