Quilting


For many of us, quilting is a lifeline. Each stitch ties us to other lives and brings a closeness to
those we love – sometimes even to those we don’t know, but still care about. May your own
quilting bring you joy and comfort throughout your life.

We at Just for Fun! Quilting pride ourselves in getting your quilt back to you within two weeks!


Preparation
Pressing: Pressing your quilt is very important. If your seams are not laying down, it can cause the hopping foot to push the fabric and create uneven quilting.
Loose Threads: Clip loose threads and check for loose seams. They can be caught on the machine while quilting.
Edges: If your outer edge has a lot of small pieces you can run a straight or a zigzag stitch on the outer edge. It helps to keep them from stretching.
Adding Extra: Be sure to add 8″ to both the width and length of your back and batting. This gives us room to mount your quilt and an area for the clamps to hold up the edges.
Selvages: Using the selvage edge in your quilt back or top will cause a tightness that has no give. Always avoid using the selvage.
Each piece: We need top, batting and backing separate for mounting onto the machines – basting is NOT necessary and must be removed before quilting.


Typical Costs

Level 1 – .02 cents per square inch. Patterns are large and run quickly.
Level 2 – .028 cents per square inch. Patterns are slightly more complex, such as a small meander or pattern which doubles back on itself.
The guide below shows the costs of each tier, as well as space to calculate the typical price for your quilting. Note: These prices are only for the quilting, and do not include thread or the purchase of batting or backing.

I.E.
A 60” quilt done in a large meander (Level 1) would be as follows:
60” x 72” = 4,320
x .02 = $86.40

To Price:
Length x Width = _____________
x Level = _____________

General Information
Backing
With backing fabric, we require a minimum of four inches extra on all sides due to our loading style. This means your backing must measure at least eight inches wider and eight inches longer than your quilt top. I.E. if your top is 50″ x 70″, then your backing needs to be 58″ x 76″ before we can work with it. Note: This also applies to batting.

Patterns
We are the proud owners of two top-of-the-line Gammill machines equipped with Computerized Statler Stitchers, which means literally thousands of patterns to choose from. And if we don’t have the perfect one for you on hand, we can order it electronically or even have one custom made! The choices are endless.
