Machine Quilting Services
SuZquilts uses an Innova AutoPilot Quilting System with a Lightning Stitch regulator. The Innova AutoPilot system includes:
SuZquilts is currently focusing on local quilters, and accepts quilts by appointment only. I will meet with you to review what is needed (for example, squaring of the quilt top, batting, binding, etc.), what type of quilting you would like and what designs would create the quilt you desire.
Please bring your quilt top, any backing and batting you would like to use, and the measurements of your quilt top.
Please note: quilts are scheduled for quilting in the order they are received. Currently there is a 30 day turn-around for longarm quilting. Please be clear about any deadlines that you may face.
Types of Quilting
SuZquilts offers several machine quilting services:
Allover or edge-to-edge designs -patterns are sewn edge to edge on the quilt. Patterns range from a simple meander to a high density design. The pricing is based on the level of density, and this cost-effective method of quilting is very popular.
Semi-custom quilting includes a combination of continuous line designs and border or sashing treatments. While more detailed than allover designs, each block may not necessarily be quilted individually.
I am not doing Custom quilting (includes specific designs in each block and special treatment of sashing or borders) at this time.
Tips and Requirements
Please make sure that your backing and batting are 4" larger on all four sides.
Keep all layers separate, do not pin or baste.
Make sure that your top, batting, and back are squared, and remove selvages.
Snip all loose threads.
Carefully press the top and backing, and mark the top of each with a pin.
Gently fold each component and place on a clothes hanger.
