Services

 
Quilting 1 — Longarm Quilter in Johns River, NSW
 
 
 
I offer a variety of quilting services to complete your quilt top.
 
From simple all over designs, such as edge to edge and continuous pantographs of which I have an ever-increasing number of gorgeous designs.
 
Panto Plus - this is where the body of the quilt is quilted with a continuous design and the border is given its own separate treatment... very effective. The look of custom at a user-friendly price.
 
Light Custom - includes simple background fills, block motifs, pattern boards, sashing treatments and border treatments chosen to complement your quilt top.
 
Custom - may include stitch 'n' ditch, feathers, ruler work and x/hatching, designed with you, to produce a gorgeous quilt that is both special and unique.
 
Please consider WHO your quilt is for, as this will help determine an appropriate quilting design.
 
For instance, if your quilt is a 'utility' quilt and will be washed regularly. I would more than likely suggest an 'all over' design or pantograph, rather than finishing it with a custom treatment.
 
Some things to have in mind when we discuss your quilting needs may include some of the following:
 
  • Have you made your quilt for a child; teenager;male; female; special occasion; a family heirloom?
  • Is your quilt top a utility quilt? Has it been pieced; appliqued; embroidered; embellished?
  • Is your quilt top traditional; modern; a whole cloth?

FAQ

 
Quilting 3 — Longarm Quilter in Johns River, NSW
 
 
 
Some basic GUIDELINES to follow to prepare your quilt top for quilting include:
 
  • Making sure your backing fabric and wadding is at least 8" larger than your quilt top eg. If your quilt top is 72" x 72" , then your backing and wadding should be at least 80" x 80".
  • Please DON'T pin baste your quilt
  • If your quilt top and / or backing is directional, PLEASE identify the top in an obvious manner.
  • Please remove stray threads and press your quilt top and seams well .....I really hate ironing
  • Please do NOT embellish your quilt with buttons, beading etc until after your quilt has been quilted.
  • Please note - borders that do not lay flat may cause pleats, tucks or fullness. It is highly recommended that you measure borders accurately to avoid this.
  • Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have further questions regarding quilt preparation. I can be contacted by phone on 0448 282517 or email me at admin@florabella.net.au
