Longarm Quilting Service choosing a quilting style….
Edge to Edge Quilting
A continuous line design worked from one edge of the quilt to the other, and repeated from top to bottom of the quilt. You can choose the density and design, giving a stunning result for all over quilting. These patterns vary from a light stitching density, to medium and heavy.
With the precision of our computerized Statler Stitcher we can adjust size and repeats of a pattern to suit your beautiful quilt.
If you would like a certain pattern and you don’t see it in our Pattern Library, I am happy to download new quilting designs for you.I can also design a new quilt pattern for your patchwork quilt.

Which pattern should you choose ?
There are many patterns available to suit a wide range of quilts.
Think about the recipient of the quilt.
Are they young?… Female? …Male? ..love a particular theme?
Think about the fabrics in the quilt do you want to repeat theme roses with roses ?
Should the image be … floral? .. linear? .. circles? .. points?..theme?
If unsure I can contact yourself once we have received your quilt and help you with a choice.
Is the thread colour important?
Yes the colour of the thread used for the quilting is important to the finished result!
Edge to Edge quilting only allows for the use of one colour of thread over the entire quilt.
I am a blender and choose a thread that blends into your patchwork quilt top the best. Therefore you need to decide whether you want the thread colour to hide into the pattern
Whether you want the stitching to add an extra decorative dimension to the quilt by being visible.
When quilting the top and bottom threads are the same colour.
WE are happy to use Variegated thread at an additional cost.
Art N Quilting Studio are happy to choose the best colour to suit your quilt.
This is where several different styles of quilting are required to complete the quilt including patterns that are made specifically to fit blocks, borders, sashes etc.This requires a quilt to be on the quilting Frame for days and requires more time then edge to edge. This style of quilting needs longer to complete so quilt returns are slower then edge to edge Please allow 3 months for custom work
These include: stitch in the ditch, background fills, crosshatching, feathers, borders, motifs, echoing. This style of quilting is charged at an hourly rate of $30.00 per hour. The cost to quilt custom varies from $ 10.00 a square foot up to $ 18.00 Depending on the quilt. Example a sampler quilt requires lots of patterns as each block is different so this will take longer.
I do free motion quilting and computerised to get the best look for your quilt top.
Clients can choose from budget to show quality, depending on complexity and density of patterns.
Costs to have your quilt professionally machine quilted will vary according to the size & design of the quilt & type of work to be done. Minimum fee $150.00

Or If you would like the quilt finished with binding on both sides machine sewn, this can be done at an hourly rate of $30.00 an hour. If needed I can also make your binding.
I hope I have explained the different quilting techniques. If you have any questions, then please send me a message via my contact form.
Happy Quilting 🙂
