All quilting is hand-guided (as opposed to computer guided) and completed in a pet-free, smoke-free studio.
I offer two types of quilting designs: Edge-to-Edge and Simple Custom. You can see some examples of these on quilts in the gallery.
What’s the difference?
- Edge-to-Edge: a meandering design is applied to the entire quilt top. These designs are perfect choices for when you want the pieced design of the quilt to stand out – not the quilting. Want something a little more unique? I can do a design mash-up. For example, how about my favorite: a doodle-loop-meander with some swirls thrown in? Or – let’s add stars, flowers, or hearts to your meander. Maybe combine silly daisies with silly swirls. Even Box Maze and Modern Lines can be customized with simple stars or flowers along the lines. Some examples:
- Simple Custom: An Edge-to-Edge design is applied to the center of the quilt, with a separate design in one border. Below are a few of the combinations you can make, but you can use whichever designs you like.
PRICING: Easy Peasy. Labor + Needle & Thread Fee + Batting + Binding = Total Cost (pre-tax).
|Quilt Size||Edge to Edge||Simple Custom|
|Baby (maximum 55” wide)||$30||$50|
|Throw (max 65” wide)||$50||$75|
|Twin (max 75” wide)||$75||$95|
|Full/Queen (max 90” wide)||$95||$125|
|King (over 90” wide)||$125||$155|
Needle & Thread Fee (not optional): This fee covers the cost of needles and thread (top and bobbin) – $8 per quilt
I use either white Glide thread (40 wt) or a white/off white Superior So Fine! Thread (50 wt.). Additional colors can be ordered, but will have an additional cost.
Batting: Purchase on your own and send it in with the quilt top, or I can provide batting. Choose from Hobbs Tuscany Polyester, Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 (cotton-poly), or Warm & Natural 100% Cotton: $20 for baby/throw size, $35 for twin/full/queen size, $40 for king size. Hobbs Tuscany 100% Wool batting is also available: $35 for baby/throw size, $45 for twin/full/queen size and $55 for king size.
If you provide your own batting, be advised that some batting does not hold up to longarm machine quilting. If you are unsure that your batting choice will work, contact me. I’ll be happy to help guide your purchase.
Binding: This service is available, for an additional fee of $50 (Baby and Throw) or $75 (Twin and Full/Queen). Clients must supply the fabric for binding strips. I can use excess backing fabric for binding if you like – if so, please specify ahead of time, and make sure to purchase enough fabric! Strips must be a MINIMUM width of 2 7/8 inches.
PREPARING YOUR QUILT TOP and BACKING
Quilt Top: Please prepare your quilt top by squaring it up, snipping all long thread tails from the backside, and pressing all seams.
Backing: To prevent delays in quilting time, clients should supply their own quilt backing. Backing needs to be a minimum of 8″ wider and 8″ longer than your quilt top. If you piece together your backing from regular width fabric, I recommend you use a seam allowance BIGGER than the standard 1/4″ piecing seam. A 1/2″ seam works well. Press backing seams open to reduce bulk – this helps keep things nice and straight.
I am happy to supply quilt backing for your quilt – just let me know what color/style you are looking for.
That’s all there is to it.
Quilting time: about 4-6 weeks.
If you aren’t in my area, that’s okay – contact me and I will give you my mailing address. Mail your top and backing to me, and I will mail the finished quilt back to you for a small additional charge ($10). If you are mailing in a quilt, please contact me and let me know it’s coming; once it’s here I’ll let you know it has received safely.
PAYMENT: A deposit of one-half the cost is required before quilting starts. When your quilt is complete, I will notify you, and the finished quilt will be shipped back to you when your payment is received in full. Personal checks are accepted for payment: make payable to Stacey Holley.
REFUNDS: Due to the nature of the services provided, all sales are final.
I can’t wait to see your quilt!
