Professional Longarm Quilting

This is my A-1 Elite longarm quilting machine which is mounted on a 14ft. table allowing me to quilt very large quilts.
A vintage Missouri Daisy quilt.
 I have been quilting since the 1970's and became serious about it after moving to Phx. AZ in the '80's. My first longarm machine was a Gamill in 2001, and in 2007 upgraded to the A-1 Elite.
I have a fast turn around, often only a couple of weeks or a month at most. Occasionally I am able to fit in a quilt immediately or within a week in an emergency!

Charges for quilting range from:

two cents/sq.inch for all over freehand designs and pantographs

two & a half cents/sq.inch for semi custom [e.g.separate borders]

three cents/sq.inch and up for more detailed quilting, ruler work, separate blocks, and heirloom quilting.

Calculating the size/charge for your quilt:

For example:

 a 75 x 90" quilt all over freehand, including freehand feathers or pantograph, multiply the length by the width, 75 x 90 = 6,750sq.inches x .02cents = $135.

Please email me for more information/accurate pricing. Each quilt is different and it may be helpful to talk about your desires by phone, I will be happy to chat with you and meet with you, no obligation entailed.

For a small charge, $5 for three lines, I also offer embroidered labels, either separate, sewn on the back or embroidered directly on front or back. More detailed labels are also possible for an additional charge.

I stock several kinds of batting including Quilter's Dream 70/30, Dream Angel flame retardant and Dream Wool, Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 all at below retail prices, or you are welcome to supply your own, but I do not work with Fairfield batting, it is too fragile for the longarm.

I return out of state quilts usually by UPS insured/signature required, as the most reasonable and dependable service but you may request a different delivery system. UPS average charge is $20-$25

There are many examples of my work on my Phanfare website:
My preference is freehand quilting but I do use pantographs on occasion and have quite a few designs from which to choose. My quilting has won ribbons and my work has been well regarded by my clients.
I love what I do and would enjoy exploring with you your longarm quilting needs.
