All of my quilting is done freehand. I get my inspiration for all my designs from the quilt. Patterns are not used and I do not mark the quilt. My services range from simple all-over designs to heirloom quilting. Please look through my Quilting Samples to see the scope of my work. It is best to decide on the quilting based on the use of the quilt, the style of your quilt and your personal likes and dislikes.

Preparing Your Quilt
Quilt top – well pressed with all threads cut.
Quilt backing – 4” larger than the quilt on all sides.
- Backing pressed with seams pressed open.
- Backing should be square with all sides trimmed evenly.
Do not add any embellishments until after the quilting process.
Fold the quilt and backing separately. Do not baste or pin your quilt prior to shipping.
Indicate the quilt top and backing top if necessary.
Place the quilt and backing in a plastic bag, then in a sturdy box for shipping.
Tips for Borders
Borders are the number one problem for machine quilters. To avoid border problems always measure your quilt to see the exact length the borders need to be cut. Always pin the borders to the quilt and then sew. This will prevent the fabric from “walking” and creating fullness in the border or the body of the quilt.
