Patterns and Pricing


For general longarm services using a pantograph design, my charge is 2.5 cents per square inch. There are no charges for thread or thread changes (although there is a charge for "matchstick" quilting).

I can provide batting at a cost of $8 per yard or use batting that you provide. If I am providing the batting, I will use either Hobbs Heirloom (white) or Warm and Natural 80/20.  Let me know if there's another type that you prefer.


Please do your best to have your quilt pressed and long threads snipped. Batting and backing should be 3-4 inches larger than your top on all sides.  The extra fabric gives room for my leaders and clamps, and a little flexibility to work with fullness.  

Pattern Library

My digital library of patterns includes the following pantographs.  I am willing to acquire additional ones if you want one that I don't have - they usually run about $10. 

I am happy to consult with you on pattern, scale, and thread selection! Contact me to get started!

In the works!

​I’ve been working on a few things lately- a mystery, an Alaska, a self drafted one for a friend’s mother, and this one. This one is called Indigo Bravo (by Nightingale Quilts). It’s being made as a surprise birthday gift for my neighbor’s father who is turning 90 soon. He’s a snarky old Marine, and we love him like family! I liked the Indigo pattern for its simplicity and how well it works with a solid color scheme. It’s navy, white, and gold, and will be bound in a red - a nod to the Marine Corps blood stripe. To balance the angles (or, at least not emphasize where my 45° are not exactly 45°) I’m quilting in an edge to edge fleur de lis design. It’s soft without being feminine, so hoping that works for this old leatherneck! Completed pics should be added soon - especially since this quilt has a scheduled appearance at Pap Pap’s party! I’ve learned an important, hard to swallow lesson on this piece. I’m a generally impatient person and I thrive on seeing progress. So I skipped some st

Christmas Quilting

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  A lovely customer brought this quilt for me to longarm, but she was worried that a busy pattern would detract from the quilt design. This holly and ornaments pantograph, in barely-there green, does the job by complementing the quilt without becoming a focal point.   Do you have something that needs to be quilted? I will always work with you to make sure that the quilting works with your quilt - in pattern, scale, and color.  PS. She loved it!!
