Finishing

What is finishing?

Trimming the edges and making sure your quilt is square is part of my longarm quilting service and is provided in the quoted quilting fee unless the customer requests that the quilt remain untrimmed.

A quilt is not completely finished until it is bound.  While most customers prefer to do their own binding Quilting with Karen provides this service.

The cost of binding is determined by the distance around your quilt in inches.

Making double fold binding and attaching to the front side of the quilt by machine – 10 cents per linear inch. The customer will then hand stitch the binding to the back of the quilt themselves.

T-Shirt Quilts
