 Did you know that we can baste your quilt?

If you’re looking for the perfect finish to your latest quilt project, Quick Stitch Quilting can help.

Our basting service (for those who prefer to hand quilt or machine quilt their own quilts)

Machine Basting is a wonderful service for quilters who want to complete their own quilts. With machine basting, large tacking stitches are run across the quilt in parallel lines, 3- 4 inches apart for stabilizing.

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.


Custom quilting ~ is an unique style of quilting that takes into account each block, border,  and appliqué, using the most appropiate technique to enhance the beauty and the piecing and quilt. Please allow 30 -45 minutes for your first Quilting Consultation. Includes, Quote, Design, Pattern options, thread choice, and expected finished date.  NOTE: Before 1st Consultation Contact me via Email ~ Quilt dimensions and Photos ~Attached a photo of your quilt this is to help assist/ guide the best quilting method. From this I can give you my honest opinion on the best method, price & time frame.


Bring to the consultation your quilt top , backing and wadding as three separate pieces.
