We'll take a picture of your quilt then overlay several different patterns for you to get an idea of what the finished product will look like before quilted. Zoom in/out to see if you want a pattern smaller or larger. It does not show thread color. Choose your favorite or we can do more mockups until you find one you like.
Edge to Edge design is $0.02 per square inch for most designs plus $7.00 for thread

$20 each consecutive hour. No class required. Call and schedule time.
If the quilt border is small pieces (i.e. piano keys) or cut on bias, sew 1/8" around the entire top. This will keep edges smooth and from unraveling.
Batting and Backing should be at least 8" longer and 8" wider than quilt top. This allows plenty of room to attach the fabric to the longarm.
Example: Top measures 50" x 50", Back Minimum is 58" x 58"
BE AWARE that fullness in your borders may not quilt out and may therefore create tucks in fabric.
Ensure your top and backing are square.
Trim all loose threads.
Ensure quilt top and backing is pressed, clean, free of animal hair and loose threads.
If the backing has seams, press them open for the quilt to lay better. Horizontal seams will quilt best.
