Woodland Quilting offers machine quilting using a longarm quilting machine.
Quilts are quilted with an all-over, edge-to-edge design that the customer picks from a variety of design choices.
The workroom is pet and smoke free.
Most of the quilting designs cost $.025 per square inch with the exception of a few of the more detailed designs that cost $.030 per square inch.
There is an additional charge for thread. The cost is determined by the type of thread chosen by the customer and the amount that is required for the quilt. The usual charge for thread is between $10 to $20.
Here are some tips to prepare your quilt for quilting:
- The quilt top needs to be pressed and the threads need to be trimmed.
- The backing should be 4 inches bigger than the quilt top on both sides and on the top and bottom of the quilt.
- Please have the backing squared and pressed.
- The batting also needs to be 4 inches bigger than the quilt top on both sides and on the top and bottom.
- The quilt will be quilted in the condition that it is received.
The most overlooked aspect of quilt construction is the borders. If the borders are not measured properly before sewing them to the quilt you are almost always guaranteed a wavy border that will not lay flat. If the quilt has a wavy border it is pretty hard for the longarm quilter to return this quilt to you with a perfectly flat border. The following information is very helpful when sewing borders to your quilt.
Tips on the Sewing of Borders to Your Quilt
- Measure your quilt top vertically through the center and down both sides. Take an average of these three numbers and cut two border strips to this measurement. Sew the side borders to your quilt top.
- Measure your quilt top horizontally through the center and along the top and bottom of your quilt. Take an average of these three numbers and cut two border strips to this measurement. Sew the top and bottom borders to your quilt top.
