Mail order is acceptable - just send a picture of your quilt and
measurements with a choice or idea of pattern and I can give

quilts around the country.
Post and Packaging will be added but there is no handling fee.

Binding of quilt ready for you to hand sew $1.80 per foot
Me to hand sew binding $1.50 per foot
Special Threads eg Metallics P.O.A
An Example of the how to work out what it might cost
Measure your quilt top through the centre from top to bottom to
get the length.
Measure your quilt top through the centre from side to side to
get the width.
Then calculate using the formula below.
Example only - 60" x 80" = 4800 square inches
4800 square inches divided by 144 = 33.33 square feet
33.33 square feet x $4.00 = $132.30
Pre-requisites needed for your quilt

If you are supplying the backing and wadding - it needs to be at
least 3" larger than the tip of the quilt on all sides. This allows
for loading into the machine.
All threads need to be trimmed from the front and back of the
quilt top and all seams to be ironed flat - this applies to any
pieced backing.
Mark the top of the quilt with a pin or tag.
There is no need to pin your layers together as they will need
to be undone before putting through my machine.

Happy New Year to you all!!

May 2012 be a happy, healthy and great year for everyone!

The end of the year kept me a bit busy - what with the Christmas family dinner and festivities to attend along with some quilts that needed to be put on the machine :)

This lovely bright quilt by Kerry was a little different from the usual quilts that come my way. It had a lot of stitchery and painted bits as well as some "bling" which added to the colour. I quilted it with the popular dragonfly & hummingbird pattern.
Another bright quilt - this time by Anne.

Another of Annes quilts - a nice mish mash of blues and golds.

Till next time, stay safe and be happy!
