Welcome to By the Vines Quilting!

My longarm quilting studio is located on the grounds of a winery & vineyard … by the vines!

I’ve been quilting for over 20 years and have considered having a longarm studio many times during that period.  In 2005, I added a Pfaff Grand Quilter on a frame to my toolkit and finished numerous quilts for my family.  I am thrilled to take the next step and finally start my own longarm studio!

The goal for my quilting business is to help you complete your works of art with stylish and high quality craftsmanship.  In my studio, a Bernina Q24 Longarm machine with Q-matic software helps me add personality to your quilts.  My design portfolio continues to grow and as I master another software program, Art and Stitch, I will soon be able to create and customize designs specifically for you.

With great support from both my family and industry members, I will always strive to be educated about the capabilities of my tools and practiced to deliver the best quality and results my customers deserve!

 

Prep Your Quilt Top

Prep Your Quilt for Quilting Checklist

Top

  • Check for and repair loose seams.
  • Press all seams flat.
  • Remove loose threads from the front and darker threads from the back.
  • The quilt top must lay flat to prevent puckering and folds.
    TIP: Measure your quilt top along the top, bottom and center. Even measurements indicate a flat top.
  • Baste outer edges of pieced borders to prevent stretching.
  • Make sure any appliqué is secure.

Backing

  • Backing and batting must be 8″ longer and wider than the quilt top.
    A 4″ allowance on all sides is necessary for maintaining proper tension during quilting.
  • Make sure all four sides of your backing have straight edges and are not cut on the bias.
    TIP: While holding opposite sides together, the folded area of the fabric should hang smoothly.

General

  • No selvages in a top.  Selvages can only be on the outer edges of backing.
    TIP: Selvages shrink at a different rate than the rest of the fabric and will cause puckers.
  • Tops, batting & backing must be separate for proper loading on the quilting frame.
  • NO PINS!
  • NO BASTING (except for outer edges of pieced borders)!
