40% of all quilting charges are donated to ‘Quilting A Memory’. This charity provides free quilting services to the families of lost/fallen service men and women – making memorial and memory quilts filled with love from their clothes and uniforms.


Shipping costs are the responsibility of the customer. I ship using USPS – cheapest delivery option available (unless you request otherwise) with insurance & delivery confirmation. I can not be responsible for the quilt once it leaves my hands, so please keep this in mind.

I offer cotton or wool batting charged at $10 per yard, you are welcome to provide your own batting as long as it is of a high quality.

Battings currently available: Quilters Dream 100% Cotton & Hobbs Heirloom 100% Wool
I use Superior Threads So Fine #50 for most quilting. It is a high quality polyester thread with the look of cotton but the strength of Poly.

I use Superior Threads Bottom Line for the bobbin thread.

I am happy to use monofilament (invisible) thread top or bottom. Cotton, variegated, and other specialty threads are available upon request.

Note: On any special thread orders you might be charged the entire cost of the spool – however the remainder of the spool/thread will be returned to you with the quilt.


Quilt Preparation

Please make your backing at least 6 inches longer and 6 inches wider than your quilt top. Please clearly label both top and back TOP or BOTTOM etc

Please trim stray threads and please remove any pet hair.

I will not quilt anything that has embellishments on it. Please wait to embellish your quilt until after the quilting process has been completed.

After quilting I will trim your quilt (unless you request for it to be returned untrimmed.) All excess fabric will be returned to you.


Quilt Binding

I am happy to bind your quilt for you. I finish all bindings by hand. Please supply me with the fabric you would like to have your quilt bound with.


Quilt Size Binding Charges
Lap/Crib Size $35
Twin Size $60
Queen Size $80
King Size $95

Current Quilting Schedule
I’m currently accepting (as of April 2014):  Modern & Contemporary Quilts for completion July – October 2014.

I do not quilt Traditional/Heirloom quilts at this time.

Please be aware if you are severely allergic, my studio is full of fiber, some of that fiber is wool and could be transferred onto your finished quilt.

All prices are quoted in US dollars.


Before you send your quilt top & backing material:

1.  Are the thread ends trimmed?

2.  Is the quilt top pressed so the seams are flat?

3.  Do the borders lay flat or are they wavy?

4.  Do your blocks lay flat.

5.  Is the quilt clean?

6.  Have you marked which end is top & bottom?


Your quilt is ready to send if it is – trimmed, pressed, borders even, flat (relatively), clean and clearly marked!
