I take your quilt very seriously and strive to make the quilting what you want it to be. Please expect to spend a little time with me discussing your wishes for your quilt, so that together we can decide what designs will look best on your quilt and and show off your hard work - but still fit within your budget.
My long arm machine does not have a computer guided system and I control every motion of my machine by hand. I take great care to ensure the work that leaves my studio is of the highest quality, and I take pride in it’s handmade uniqueness.

The balance will be due when the quilt is completed. I accept cash, personal check, PayPal and Venmo.
Additional charges may be added if extra preparation is required!
