Do you hate the tedious task of basting your quilt layers together? 

I provide professional basting services on my longarm quilting machine. This process ensures that your quilt top, batting, and backing are sandwiched smoothly and evenly. Using long running stitches at 6" apart, your quilt "sandwich" will be returned to you and ready to quilt. Once quilted, you will be able to remove the basting stitches easily. 

This service includes:

  • Sandwiching your quilt top, batting, and backing
  • Basting with long running stitches around the perimeter of the quilt, and every 6" horizontally and vertically
  • Glide or Gamut polyester thread is used for ease of removal, in a contrasting colour to your quilt top and back

** Calculate the square inches of your quilt top by multiplying the width x length and then choose your pricing option **

Baby Size Quilt 

(up to 1,200 sq in): $25

Crib Size Quilt
