Binding - Machine Binding is offered
.015 cents per inch which includes cutting, folding and applying binding to the front of the quilt. Then you can complete the binding with hand sewing or I can complete sewing the binding on for an extra charge of $15.00. You must provide at least a yard of fabric for the binding, I will prep the binding for you, any fabric that is leftover will be sent back to you. I can apply the binding.
Example for Binding:
  1. Length + Width x 2 = Binding Length

    All quilts are quilted in the order that I receive them. A 1st come 1st serve system. Until I have your quilt in hand and $30 deposit there is no guarantee on the finished date. Most quilts will take 4-5 weeks.
