To better discuss your quilting requirements when your quilt is “machine ready”, please make a consultation appointment.

I take pride in my work and I appreciate the time, skill and money that you have invested into your quilts.

All quilts are quilted to your specifications. We discuss the quilting design and thread choice. I can provide you with examples of my work. I offer a range of quilting styles and guidance to meet your needs and budget. Every quilt starts with a design consultation so we can find a design that works best.

The rows are placed as close as possible to get the best effect. Quilting Consultation, Please allow 30 -45 minutes for your first Quilting Consultation.
