Techniques

Elegant Stitches offers a variety of machine quilting techniques, including:

~ Meandering (stippling) - an overall random pattern that covers the whole quilt, or certain sections of the quilt, to enhance the quilt blocks. The meandering can vary in size.

 

~ Pantograph (edge to edge) - a continuous design from one edge of the quilt to the other, including borders. Many designs are available to choose from.

 

~ Custom quilting - set to your own specification. Custom quilting includes any or all of the above techniques, or custom designed patterns such as feathers, circles, grids, etc.

 

~ Basting - If you prefer to hand quilt your quilt, why not have it basted by machine? Basting is done every 4-5 inches.


 

Measurements

To calculate the square footage of your quilt do the following:  

-measure in inches the width and

length

- multiply width by length and this

will equal the total square inches of your quilt

- divide the total square inches by 144

The result is the size of your quilt in square feet.

Example:

Quilt Size – 84” x 96”

84 x 96 = 8064”/144 = 56 sq feet

56 x $2.00 = $112.00
