Here at Heavenly Notions we offer long arm quilting services. Our 30" Nolting Pro stitch is equipped with the IntelliQuilter computerized system. We offer hundreds of all-over (edge to edge) quilting patterns. Scroll to the bottom of this page to see a few examples of our patterns.
Preparing your quilt for quilting:
Your backing must be larger than your top. Your backing needs to be at least 8 inches bigger than your quilt top, meaning if your top is 60" x 70" we need your backing to be at least 68" x 78". We also ask that you check to make sure that there is minimal 'fullness' in your borders and your quilt is as square as possible. In some cases, when your quilt is not square it can lead to wrinkles, folds, or waves in your quilt top. Alternatively, you can lay your quilt flat on the floor. If there is a wrinkle that you seem to chase around the outside edge and can't get to lay flat then you've got a bit of a fullness problem. We are always willing to give guidance on how to prevent problems such as these. Please press or starch your quilt so that the the seams lay flat. .
We carry Warm and Natural batting and Polyester by the roll; however, you can bring your personal preferred batting. We strongly discourage the use of extremely thin packaged poly.
We price our quilts by square inch and charge for any additional services requested. Our all-over patterns are defined as patterns that start at the top edge and are the same over the entire quilt. Our all-over patterns start at $0.0125 per square inch and increase to $0.02 for more complicated patters requiring additional thread. A quick way to estimate what your quilting costs would be is quilt length x quilt width x .0125 and then add $20 for batting. This will give you an estimate, but will not cover any additional applicable fees. An example: A quilt that is 62 x 72 has 4,464 square inches. Multiplied by $0.0125 is $55.80, plus $20.00 equals a cost of approximately $ 75.80.
Potential/optional additional costs
Occasionally, people ask us to assemble backs. These are services that we can perform for a fee. Please note these services are optional.
- Backing assembly is $10 for a simple assembly .
- The non-cotton backing surcharge is $10. Non-cotton backings such as fleece, minky, or snuggle fabrics are excessively stretchy and warrant careful watching to ensure that there aren't any folds or tucks. They can create difficulty when loading and may take extra care in pattern choice.
