The components of a quilt include:  Top + Batting + Backing + Thread.

Please read through Preparing Your Quilt for a Longarm Quilter for additional tips and tricks. 

How much will it cost? What type of quilting do you prefer?  Rates are determined by the density and complexity of the quilting. Your actual quilt measurements are used to calculate your quilting price.  A small fee is added for thread.

Backing: Heartbeat Quilting has many wide backings to choose from or you may bring in your own. Backing should be at a minimum 8 inches wider and 8 inches longer than your quilt top. We request a minimum of 10 inches for anything larger than a queen. For example, if your quilt top is 100 x 100, we will need 110 x 110. If you need to add fabric to your backing, please read through Adding to Your Backing for a Longarm Quilter for requirements and design ideas.

Batting: Heartbeat Quilting has 16 different types of batting available by the yard.  Prices start at $4.25 per yard.  Batting should also be 8 inches wider and 8 inches longer than your quilt top.

Thread: Heartbeat Quilting has pretty much any thread color you can imagine, including variegated threads. There is a small fee for thread. 

Shipping: Heartbeat Quilting completes quilts from all over USA and Canada.  Contact us for further information about shipping costs. Other quilting services available upon request. As each quilt is different, please stop in with your quilt top to request a quote. Communication is essential for a great finished product.
