We are proud to announce that Swink Girls Quilts now offers professional long arm quilting services!

We believe in providing unique, one-of-a-kind quilting to enhance your piecing and turn your quilt into a family treasure!
Long Arm Pricing
We offer three levels of service:
A. Edge to Edge - this includes pantographs and freehand designs. Price depends on density of quilting and ranges from $.015 to .045 per square inch (quilt top measurement prior to quilting).*
B. Semi-Custom - combination of simple overall design along with some custom border, sashing and/or block designs priced at $.020 to .050 per square inch.
C. Custom - Extensive stich in ditch, ruler work, complex design or pattern with variable prices to be determined on a case by case basis and starting at $15/hr.
*$40 minimum charge. Prices do not include thread, batting or backing. Thread charge is $1.00 per bobbin used. We typically use Aurifil or Superior brand threads.
Top and Backing Preparation
- Top must be well pressed and lay flat to avoid puckers or pleating in the quilting process.
- Please clip loose threads and make sure there are no stray pins!
- Square the top by measuring in three places left to right and top to bottom and trimming excess.
- Press backing fabric and measure carefully. Backing must be at least 10 inches longer than the quilt top and 4 inches wider than the quilt top. For best results, piecing seams on backing should run horizontal to the quilt top.
You may provide your own batting or we can order it for you from our supplier - Quilter's Dream. Pricing available upon request.
