I am a fabricholic and a quiltaholic. I love everything to do with fabric, quilts, quilting and patchwork. I have been patchworking since 2004, and in 2007 I purchased a computerized Gammill Optimum long arm quilting machine with Statler Stitcher. Since then I have quilted numerous quilts and UFOs for myself, friends and family. My specialty is edge to edge quilting. I prefer not to do custom quilting. I have made two trips to the USA and each time I have come home with a suitcase full of fabrics and vintage quilt tops to add to my collection and stash. I have lots of quilts and wall hangings of my own to showcase my quilting, as well as sample designs for you to choose from.
Fabricologist: one who has perfected the art of stashing fabric.
I live in Livingstone Lane, Ironbark, Qld (in the Walloon / Haigslea area), just 15 minutes west of Ipswich, off the Warrego Highway at Schultz’s Road turnoff. My husband and I enjoy the rural life on our acerage property.
Please note that you will need to contact me to make an appointment to drop off your quilt. If you are local or close to Ipswich city, I may be able to pick up your quilt when I go to town, and can bring samples of quilted designs for you to choose from.
As a guide, below are examples of prices for EDGE TO EDGE quilting – Prices are subject to change from time to time. Firm quote given at the time of order.
* Edge to Edge – a repeated pattern quilted in rows across the quilt, from top to bottom – average cost based from $5.00 sq. ft. My minimum charge is $50 – examples of average prices below, which do not include extra time needed for “Quilting Out” any issues or preparing your top or backing (refer Quilt Preparation charge below).
Lap size, say 55 x 60” $115
Lap size, say 60 x 65” $135
Single 54” x 75” $145
Double 80” x 90” $250
Queen 90” x 100” $315
I do not charge a set up or consultation fee. A thread charge of $5 – $10 applies, depending on the size of your quilt and density of the design. If you request dense quilting, a surcharge applies for extra machine running time and thread.
QUOTES: I am happy to give you a preliminary quote based on the size of your quilt. You can phone or email me. Simply give me the width and the length of your quilt (in inches) and I will work it out. Otherwise, multiply the length x width, divide by 144, then multiply by $cost per sq ft, which is currently $5.
* See Quilt Preparation section for any extra costs which may apply e.g. trimming, joining or extending your backing if needed – $25 per hour or part thereof.
