Long Arm Quilting
Using a hand-guided HandiQuilter Fusion 24” machine on a 12’ table, I offer a range of professional quilt finishing services. From basting, edge 2 edge and pantographs, borders, custom quilting and on to binding, I can help you finish your quilts – leaving you with more time to enjoy creating the next one. Just think; no more layering and basting. No more fighting with large amounts of fabric and batting, and your sewing machine. No more struggling to find time to quilt. No more stress. No more worries.
Especially wonderful for hand quilters who don’t fancy either crawling around the floor on their hands and knees, or the hassle of pinning and basting the 3 layers –crease free – together.
- Edge to edge.
Pretty much what it says on the tin, e2e designs ignore the overall design of the top and deliver a random meandering design covering the entire top and producing a gorgeous, soft textured finish.
A more structured version of e2e designs following a clear, repeated pattern in rows over the whole quilt. This also gives a wonderful textured finish.
Creating a separate but complimentary design in the borders of your quilt, to add a degree of customised work without taking the next step.
- Custom quilting.
An individual, bespoke design created especially for your quilt. This is where ruler work, feathers and cross hatching come into play to enhance each area of your top and help it become the beauty it deserves to be. Ranging from a light custom design, which might incorporate some element of e2e or panto, on up to custom +, which as its name suggests is a fully customised design incorporating all the bells and whistles.
I can use your prepared binding, or cut and prepare your fabric for you, apply it by machine and leave it to you to finish as you wish, or do the whole lot – apply by machine and finish by hand. Your choice. The binding would be double fold with mitred corners.
