Long Arm Quilting By: Sandy


Preparing The Top/Backing

The backing should be 3 to 4 inches bigger than your top all the way around. For example if the top is 60"x 70" then the backing should be 68" x 78". The back should have all the selvaged cut off before it is pieced and should be 100% cotton fabric. The top and the back should be pressed and squared.

Cost Explanation:

Edge to Edge quilting is 1.75 cents per square inch plus the cost of batting. We use Hobbs 80/20 batting that is made in Texas organically with no pesticides. The price of the batting varies by which kind is used. We currently have 96" in natural, 108" in natural, and 108" in white in stock. There is a minimum quilting fee of $50.00.
Example: If your finished top measures 60 inches by 70 inches
60 x 70 = 4200 x 1.75 cents = $ 73.50 + (2 yards Batting @ 9.39 per yard) 18.78 = $ 92.28 + (8.25% Tax) 7.61 = $ 99.89
