Batting:  You may supply your own or purchase from us. 
Available battings are:  

    • Hobbs 80/20* - $.29 inch
    • American Fiber Products 80/20* - .29 inch
    • Warm & Natural - $.45 inch

*80/20 - 80% cotton, 20% polyester Gives the batting a little stability while working on the longarm. Won't bunch up after multiple machine washings. 

*Fullness Disclaimer - Fullness and/or puckers within a quilt top cannot be quilted out. We cannot guarantee that puckers and tucks won't be sewn in. In some cases excessive fullness in borders may result in quilt top corners not being square. The flatter your quilt top is, (ironing helps a lot) the better the finished quilt will turn out.

*Mechanical Disclaimer- Please be aware that sewing machines including long arm machines are mechanical devices. Although we do our best to ensure perfect results every time, on the very rare occasion mechanical problems can occur which may cause minor damage to a quilt top and/or backing.

How much fabric do I need for binding?

For binding, we need to determine the 'perimeter' of the quilt top. To determine the perimeter add together the outside dimensions of the quilt top, the top and bottom widths, and the left and right side outside dimensions and add 10 inches for closure (to allow for mitering of the binding).

Example, if a quilt top is 60" x 70", you would calculate (60+60+70+70+10) = 270". Divide this measurement by 42" (width of fabric) = 6.43 strips. You would realistically cut 7 width of fabric strips 2.5" wide.

These strips are then sewn/mitered together, then sewn onto the quilt on the back side of the quilt sandwich AFTER the quilting has been completed, then fold the strip to the top side and machine stitch along the folded edge.
