Longarm Quilting

Hi!  I’m Jenn’s mom, Kathy.  I love helping her and her students finish their beautiful quilts.  I use a Grace Q’Nique 21X Elite longarm, named Priscilla, to do computerized quilting. This gives your quilt improved durability through regulated stitching, precision tension and computerized accuracy for a quilt that will last for years to come.  

Do you happen to have a stack of unfinished quilt tops just waiting to be finished? There are many ways to go about finishing your quilt – old fashioned hand quilting, straight line machine quilting, free motion machine quilting or finish it professionally with longarm quilting services. That’s where I can help!

Priscilla is programmed with intricate edge to edge quilting designs to give your quilt the perfect finish.  There are hundreds of quilting designs to choose from to give your quilt a unique, professional finish that you will love.  Longarm quilting pantographs can vary from a simple meander to detailed designs like swirly paisleys, beautiful florals, scattered leaves or special holiday or occasion designs.  No matter what pattern you select, my longarm quilting services will surely give your quilt a special final touch.  

So, thank you for trusting me with your beautiful quilt top. Below is a gallery of some of the work I have done, instructions for preparing your quilt for longarm services and my services pricing.  I promise to treat your quilt with care from the moment it arrives to the final stitch.
