Longarm quilting machines enable a professional quilter to load the back, batting, and top into a metal frame and stitch all three layers together at once. We sew edge to edge, left to right, creating a pattern selected by the customer. Since the sewing is computerized, all the stitches are clean and even.
The appeal of longarm quilting is that it helps you create quilts faster and without strain. This method allows you to indulge the creative process of designing a quilt, picking out the thread, choosing patterns, etc., while freeing you from the physical responsibility of stitching the quilt.
Choose your backing, making sure that your backing measures at least 10” larger than your quilt.
