Thank you for your interest in longarm quilting at GRS Fabrics! Completing a quilt is a wonderful experience and we are excited to help you with your quilting needs. Through our shop, we offer edge-to-edge pantograph quilting. You will be able to choose from a multitude of designs and choose your thread. We only offer longarm quilting for our local customers. If your quilt needs more custom work, please inquire for our custom quilting recommendation. Below is a "know before you go" on prepping your quilt top and/or backing for longarm quilting.
Measuring: Our quilters require the quilt backing to have an additional 4" extra on each side than your quilt top (Example: If your quilt top is 50” by 60” then the quilt back needs to be at least 58” by 68”). This allows for the long-armer to secure the quilt "layers" on the machine.
Quilt top prep: We request you snip all those pesky loose threads and press your seams before dropping off your quilt. This will help produce a beautiful finished quilt!
Square it up: Please take a moment to make sure you have squared up your quilt top to the best of your ability. This will ensure the best possible outcome of the quilting design.
Check those seams: All seams should have an appropriate seam allowance, typically ¼”. If you have too narrow of a seam allowance, seams may become undone when securing the quilt on the machine and may cause the quilting foot to get hung up and damage the quilt.
Quilt top condition: We only take in “like-new” quilt tops to be longarm quilted. We are unable to take quilt tops with stains, tears, holes, or any visible damage.
Thanks for reading the fine print; we want you to be 100% satisfied with your quilt! If you have any further questions, please call 281-528-9898 and ask for Sarah or Rena.
