So what is edge-to-edge quilting?
Edge-to-edge designs use one color of thread and run continuously, from one edge to the other, over the entire body of the quilt, regardless of borders, blocks, seams, or piecing designs. The designs are digital patterns which are computer guided (with the assistance of one of our team members) and can be sized to achieve the desired level of quilting density and scale.
Edge-to-edge quilting offers beautiful all-over quilting, wonderful texture on the surface of the quilt, and is available in numerous designs, including but not limited to: geometric shapes, lines, vines and flowers.

What does it cost? And what is included?
Our BERNINA long-arm quilting machine can accommodate quilt tops ranging in size up to 100” maximum width, with no restrictions on length. Edge-to-edge quilting prices are based on square inches of $.03 per square inch.
To determine the square inches of your quilt top, multiply the length x width. (For example, if your quilt top is 60” x 60”, the total square inches is 3,600 inches x $.03 = $108.) There is a minimum charge of $75.00.
Thread is included in the per inch calculation but you will either need to provide batting or purchase batting. We carry 100% cotton as well as an 87.5/12.5 cotton/poly blend (in both white and natural).
Quilt backing is also not included in the cost of E2E quilting services. Don't have a quilt back? We have a selection of wide back cotton in contemporary patterns and solids that you can choose from. Or for an additional $25 we will piece your back using either Kona cotton solid or a print. Other additional longarm quilting services are available. Simply select them when filling out the Quilting Request or when dropping off the quilt.
