Detailed Charges will be provided on an invoice of account!  Payment to be provided at time of invoice/quilting completion.

A.  For quilts headed to longarm quilting( both edge to edge and custom) ....Backing and batting need be at least  8" larger top to bottom , and side to side than quilt top itself.  example... a quilt TOP of 60 x 80 would require a backing and batting at least 68 x 88.

B.  PROBLEM Areas:  Repairs, border adjustments,  any "required pressing" will be billed at $25/hr. Believe me, I won't do this unless absolutely necessary and you will need request pressing. If you have a pieced seamed wool quilt...know the chance of quilted bulky seams are high especially when seams are not fully pressed to stay open.

C.  For both Custom and Edge to Edge quilting... Customer will mark .. the middle of quilt top edge / backing edge  and  middle of  top and bottom backing edge ! Last thing I want is to get a different orientation than you desire!

D. Particularly if shipping your top and backing for quilting , Patt can acquire batting for you if needed. Discuss up front if so desired... otherwise customer will provide desired batting.

E. IF needed, discuss w/ Patt if you need binding created, and/or added to quilt... avg. to create/attach to front.. .10c/inch To hand stitch to back .10c/inch. I'm not promoting this service but can do if you really need me to. ;-)

F. RUSH JOB .. i.e. required completion/delivery w/i 30 days... + 10% of invoice total.

 Custom,  Heirloom,  and Competition Level Quilting...  billed at $25/hr.   Please let's talk. I'll try to design within your budget... Just tell me.... We'll work it out.
