All designs are free motion and hand guided when quilting. What does this mean? I don't have a computerized machine and so the designs are drawn by me when quilting.
I may sometimes use stencils or mark a pattern on the quilt, but usually just for reference.
Edge to edge or all over quilting. Starts at .01 per square inch. Edge to edge or all over quilting, is one design motif quilted over the entire top.
Custom starts at .04 per square inch. With custom quilting the design is specific to a certain area or block. Most often more than 1 motif is used.
PREPARING THE BACKING AND BATTING
It is important to note that when you prepare your backing and batting that i have a minimum of 4 inches all the way around the edge of the quilt. This is so I can quilt all the way around and as close to the edge as possible.
If you need to piece the backing, do so in the middle of the quilt using a 1/2" seam allowance. Trim the selvage before doing this.
