Does your pile of pieced quilt tops seem to be getting bigger? Let's take them from being folded in a closet to full of edge to edge quilting texture, so you can show them to all your family and friends.
I offer a full range of Longarm Quilting Services, from all-over edge to edge quilting patterns to custom quilting. I have a 14' APQS 'Lucey' long arm quilting machine with a computerized system called QuiltPath attached to it. Custom work is done freehand and/or using computerized custom designs.
I go above and beyond to cater to the attention to detail of each project's specific needs.
Not sure where to start?
I would love to help! When you book your quilt with me, you have the option to have me pick the design entirely and/or make the thread choice.
When using digital edge to edge quilting designs, this means that the quilting will be uniform across the quilt top and not area-specific.
My personal aesthetic leans toward modern-looking, often geometric, and abstract quilting designs. I also favour more dense quilting with the goal of giving your top a lovely texture that compliments your patchwork.
I have several different E2E designs to choose from. Check out my selection and we can work together or I can select a design that will fit perfect with your quilt top.
What kind of pantograph design would you like?
Take a look at the pantographs I have available here.
For additional options, search any of these websites below. If you find a pantograph that I don't own, I'm happy to split the cost with you to buy it for your project. Search the terms pantograph or edge-to-edge (E2E) to find the right type of designs.
Go forth and search!
Or take inspiration from other projects I've done.
If you're after something just a little bit extra, we can work out something custom. By adding in ruler work, freehand/digital designs or a combination, I can accent all your hard work.
Now that you've finished your top, picked your quilting design and thread colour, you have to think about your backing fabric and batting. I offer Hobbs 80/20 Premium Batting at an extra cost.
If you're not using a wide back backing and need to piece it, I can offer that service as well.
I know the final steps of making and adding the binding is not everyone's favourite, but it is for me! Seriously, I enjoy doing it. I make binding by using the continuous bias method and attach it to the quilt while it's still on the longarm frame. If you want to receive your quilt ready to go, I can attach to the other side as well. Depending on your budget and preference, I can do it by hand or machine.
I grew up enjoying art and crafting. From drawing, painting, embroidery, knitting and sewing.
I love making things with my hands.
I have a background in design which is useful when helping you choose the scale and design of quilting for each individual project.
I have cold feet so I always wear slippers.
I love to wear large, unusual rings.
I drink tea, not coffee.
I like to draw and paint, lately on my iPad.
I love surface pattern design and have aspirations of designing a fabric collection.
I'm the Vice President of my local Quilt Guild.
I'm a member of the Longarm League.
I love flowers, birds and quilty texture.
By day I work at a Foot Clinic in my hometown helping patients with their feet!
I like splitting the rest of my time between family and sewing /artistic related things.
