This is the machine I use for my free-motion quilting.  It is a Babylock Tiara II with a 16″ throat.

I have been doing free-motion quilting for a few years now on a Pfaff Quilt Expression 4.0 which has a 9″ throat.  I totally enjoy free-motion quilting and thought it was about time to upgrade and start doing quilting for others.  I have taken classes on Craftsy as well as members of a quilt guild and other nationally know teachers.  I love doing feathers and try to incorporate them as much as I can. Please see below for my pricing guidelines, an estimate will be written up when you bring the quilt top to me and we discuss what kind of quilting you want. If you are not local please send a picture with measurements when inquiring.

All my quilting is free-motion.  I may use rulers and templates and stencils for the designs.  I try to do as little marking as possible.  When I do mark I use white or colored chalk that can be brushed off.

I would love to take your quilt tops and enhance them with my quilting.  I can do basic meandering or an overall edge to edge stitch, but I would rather do something special to make your masterpiece stand out (whether it is pieced or appliqued). I love feathers and swirls.

Call and make an appointment with me where we will look at and talk about your quilt and what quilting I can do for you and give you an estimate.  We can work together to make your vision for this quilt come through.
