Our Forte quilting machine

All our longarm quilting is done on our Handi Quilter Forte longarm machine with Pro-Stitcher.  We have a large selection of quilting patterns and designs and are continually adding new designs to our collection. We will work with you to turn your quilt top into a finished keepsake.


  • Edge to Edge - A single pattern is used on the entire quilt top. 

  • Custom – Quilting specifically designed around your individual quilt. Typically, more than one design is utilized for the blocks, borders and sashing. Ask for quote.



The longarm quilting fee is determined by the size of your quilt in square inches. An example is quilt top is 60" x 75" would be 4500 square inches. The cost of quilting for an edge to edge design is $.025 cents per square inch x 4500 which comes to $112.50.


Other costs will include batting, thread, and binding services. You may choose your own batting, however, we do have Warm and Natural 100% cotton batting and Hobbs 80/20 cotton-polyester blend available for purchase.

    • Make and Attach - You supply the fabric and we will make and attach so that you can hand stitch down, $0.19 per linear inch.

    • Attach only - You provide the pre-made binding and we will attach it $.11 per linear inch for you to hand stitch.

  • Quilt top should be clean, pressed and trimmed down to final finished size.

  • Trim any loose threads. Make sure all seams are secure.

  • Use a safety pin to mark the top of the quilt.

  • Remove any excess pins, buttons and other embellishments.

  • The quilt top must lay flat. Measure quilt top across the top, bottom, and at the center. These measurements should be the same, if not you may end up with puckers and an unsquared quilt.

  • Quilt top, backing and batting should be 3 separate pieces. We load them separately on the longarm machine.

  • Batting and Backing must be at least 4" larger than the quilt top on all sides. For example, if the quilt top is 60" x 70" the Batting and Backing should measure 68" x 78".

  • If you pre-wash your quilt top it is highly recommended that you also pre-wash your backing fabric.



*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, the better the finished quilt will be.

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