What Happens at a Quilting Consultation?

 

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.

 

Edge-to-Edge (allover designs) – This is a repeating pattern of your choice that starts at the top of the quilt and goes in rows to the bottom. 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. Includes, Quote, Design, Pattern options, thread choice, and expected finished date.
