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

As each quilt is different, please stop in with your quilt top to request an accurate quote. Communication is essential for a great finished product. Please plan to spend at least 10 to 15 minutes per quilt top. We will ask many questions to help ensure that we understand what your expectations are. Please read through Preparing Your Quilt for a Longarm Quilter for additional tips and tricks.


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.


Heartbeat Quilting has almost 20 different types of batting available by the yard. Prices start at $5.50 per yard. Batting should also be 8 inches wider and 8 inches longer than your quilt top.


Heartbeat Quilting has pretty much any thread color you can imagine, including variegated threads. There is a small fee for thread, based on type of thread, density of quilting and size of your quilt top.

Turnaround Time

Our turnaround time is constantly fluctuating. We tend to be busier leading up to the WSQ Quilt Show in October, which then leads directly into Christmas. We are averaging 7-8 weeks out for computerized allover/edge-to-edge quilting and up to three months for our custom quilter. Please note that if we are doing the binding, this can add an additional week to the turnaround time. If you have a deadline, please call to see if we can meet it without a rush fee. We only discuss how much a rush fee would be once we know all the details of the project.


Heartbeat Quilting completes quilts from all over USA and Canada.  Contact us for further information about shipping costs and design. We can often take care of most details via email and phone. If you are interested, feel free to send us a photo of your quilt top to begin a discussion.
