Frequently Asked Questions

1. How much fabric do I need for the backing, and how much batting do I need for the quilt?

My quilt frame can accommodate up to 130″ in width. The backing needs to be at least 8″ wider and longer than the quilt top (4″ on all sides), and the batting needs to be 6″ wider and longer than the quilt top (3″ on all sides). So with that in mind, take note of the diagram below.

I really LOVE to have even more space than that outside your quilt top. It would also be lovely to have some scrap pieces of your quilt top that I can put it on the edge and use it to check the thread tension easier. The above measurements are the bare minimum that I need.

2.Can I have you quilt just a portion of fabric, and not necessarily a blanket?

Yes! Quilted fabrics can be used for lots of projects like pillows, totes, bags, pot holders, vests/jackets, tablecloths, runners, Christmas stockings, etc. I can quilt any piece of fabric as long as the top fabric measurements are a minimum of 40″ long so that it can be loaded onto my frame. The minimum charge is $50, but the price will be calculated based on the size of the “quilt” top. All you have to do is fill out an order form just like you would for a quilt. Pick a pattern and thread color family, and tell me the measurements of the fabric top. There are several places on the order form to make a note about your project, or you can email me at or call me at (907) 521-0316 if you have any questions.

I offer a discounted price if you are already ordering a whole quilt and want to add pillow shams to your order to match your quilt. I have specific instructions for making pillow sham fronts (click here). 

3.What methods of payment do you accept?

I can accept cash or checks, but I will not begin the project until the check clears the bank. I can also send an invoice via PayPal for you to pay online. I am in the process of updating my payment processor, so keep checking back for updates on the website.
