The Process

01.

Submit the Quilting Form

The request form has space for you to tell me all about your quilt, and let me know your preferences. Your project is unique, and I want to know everything about it!  I'll contact you within 24 hours to get any additional information and provide my address.

02.

Mail Your Materials

Mail (or drop off) your quilt top and backing. I recommend getting tracking on your package to be certain your hard work is protected.  Once your quilt arrives, we will finalize the quilting design and other choices.

03.

Your Quilt, Made With Love

When your quilt is complete I will send you an invoice and photos showing off the quilting.  Once you pay the invoice, I will mail it back to you. I always insure and track client projects, mailing in discreet packaging to protect your work.

Longarm Quilting Services

Edge-to-edge longarm quilting for quilt tops up to 120” wide.

Edge-to-edge quilting is 2.5¢ per square inch.
There is a $60 minimum charge per quilt.

Once you send your quilt, I’ll begin quilting. This starts with
measuring your quilt, loading it onto my longarm quilting machine, and quilting. When I’m done, I will send photos of your quilt and an invoice via email. After you pay the invoice, I will ship your quilt back to you!

Your quilt will be mailed in discreet, protected and insured packaging.

Batting Options

Quilts Made With Love proudly carries Quilter’s Dream batting. This batting is high-quality, made in the USA, and it quilts like a dream! In-stock options include:

Cotton batting is the most traditional choice, made with all natural cotton fiber grown in the USA. Cotton batting has excellent drape, is very warm, and breathable. Your quilt will shrink ever so slightly after washing.

Binding Services

I would love to return your quilt to you completely finished! I offer binding services in two options:

When you receive your quilt back, it will be ready for hand stitching the binding down. It may not be completely finished… but you’re one step closer!

If you would like to take advantage of this service, please include binding fabric when you drop off or mail your quilt top and make sure it’s clearly labeled.  Making the binding strips is included in the above pricing.

Testimonial from Renee

I was lucky enough to find Michelle after musing on Instagram that I really wanted to find an African American longarm quilter. Someone tipped me off to Michelle and I’m so happy!

She helped me choose a quilting pattern and also sewed my binding. Her communication was top notch and she happily provided me updates along the way.

I will definitely be sending her more quilts in the future, because there will be more.

Testimonial from Tracy

Michelle has a great sense of what designs will bring out your quilt pattern and work well with your fabrics. I recently finished a quilt top that I wasn’t in love with.

I consulted with Michelle about how to best bring out the pattern and she knocked it out of the park!

I’m full of confidence that my quilts will be handled carefully, and I’ll love the finished product when I leave them with Michelle!

Check out my library of quilting designs. I am adding new designs all the time! You can see a few here.

Don’t know which design you would like to use? I would love to help you select a design that best complements the style of your quilt top. Indicate on your request form that you need help choosing, and I’ll send you three designs that I think would look stellar on your quilt.

If you want to use a design not shown in the library, I’ll split the cost of the new design with you!

Quilt Prep

Getting ready to submit a quilt top for quilting? Please review the following requirements to make sure you get the best possible results.

  • Make sure your batting and backing are larger than your quilt top by 4” on all sides. If your quilt top is 60”x60”, your backing should be 68”x68”.
  • Square up your backing fabric so there are no uneven edges.
  • Backing seams should be pressed open if possible, with the selvedges removed.
  • Label the top of your quilt top and backing with a note and/or a pin.
  • Give your quilt top and backing a fresh press before mailing or dropping off.
  • Clip loose threads, especially dark threads that may show through white fabric.
  • If you are shipping your quilt, fold your quilt top, backing, and batting separately. Place them in a plastic bag inside the mailing box or envelope.
