Longarm Quilting and Basting Services
You spent a great deal of time and effort making your quilt top. Quilter's Corner wants to help complete your project with beautiful quilting! Our Statler-trained team of quilters treat your quilt with care and precision, as if it were their very own!
Preparing your quilt:
Quilt Top must be pressed and squared-up with all the loose threads snipped off the backside. For best results, the top should lay flat with consistent 1/4" seams.
Backing needs to be 8″ wider and 8″ longer than your top. You may supply your own or Quilter's Corner has a selection of wide backings for you to choose from. If you piece your backing fabric, remove all selvages and use a seam allowance BIGGER than the standard 1/4″ piecing seam (1/2" - 5/8″ is fine). Press the seams to one side and square-up the back.
We price our services based on the square inch size of your quilt top. Multiply the length by the width through the middle of the top to find the number of square inches.
