I am a free-style hand guided machine quilter, limited only by my imagination and not purchased designs! I welcome the design and thread colour ideas you bring with your top and will take the time to ensure you will receive the exact quilting design your quilt top deserves.
Your top will be treated with care and respect in my home. My home is smoke and pet free and the studio is cleaned after every quilt is finished to ensure your top will stay as clean as I receive it.
Typically, I stabilize the top by basting it down around the outside edge so you may find any colour at all being used! I do a test swatch to check tension and you may find that along one edge as well.
Custom and Heirloom quilting require the top to be marked for spacing or motifs. I usually use chalk and I do my best to remove these markings but quilts must be kept away from heat and gently washed after binding to remove any markings that remain.
I do not trim the quilts so all quilts are returned with the extra batting and backing attached. Any offcuts I do will be returned.
