How to calculate square inch....quilt length x quilt width = square inches
Example: quilt size 75" long, 65" wide: 75 x 65 = 4875 sq inches.
How to calculate linear inches... (quilt length + quilt width) x 2 = quilt linear inches.
Example: quilt size 75" long, 65" wide: (75 + 65) = 140 x 2 = 280 linear inches.1) Let us quilt it for you. Drop off and pick up your quilt at My Favorite Quilt Shop, turn around time is 4 to 6 weeks. Custom quilting will be more expensive, and will depend on the amount of custom work desired.
I have professional quilters that can quilt your quilt. One of my professionals has over 10 years experience in hand guided, pantograph quilting. My other quilters use computer guided quilting systems. All quilters use Gammill Quilting machines and do their work in smoke and pet free environments.
To prepare your quilt for quilting:
* Prepare your quilt front by pressing all the seams flat and make sure your quilt lays flat (if it doesn't lay flat, there is a possibility for puckers during the quilting process).
* Prepare your backing: verify your backing is at least 4 inches larger than the quilt front on all four sides, example: if your quilt front measures 50" x 60", your quilt backing must measure at lease 58" x 68". Make sure your backing is pressed and all seams lay flat.
* If your supplying the batting, make sure the batting is at least 4" larger than the quilt front on all four sides. If your batting is not large enough, we will substitute the batting with a "Quilters Dream" batting of similar type and the cost will be added to your invoice.
* Think about what color of thread you want the quilter to use.
If you would like to meet with one of the quilters to discuss the quilting you would like on your quilt, please call ahead to schedule a meeting.
