Katy’s Kwilts
Quilting Service and Supplies

 

If you answer “yes” to any of the following:

  • Do you have quilt tops waiting to be quilted?
  • Do you like to piece tops but don’t relish quilting?
  • Do you find it too heavy to manage your quilt on a domestic machine?
  • Do you like to hand quilt but haven’t the space to sandwich the three layers together?

then I can help you!

I use a ‘Gammill longarm computer guided quilting machine’ to take all the strain of the heavy weight of the top, wadding and backing enabling me to quilt any size up to 100" wide and any length. The stitch regulated machine keeps the stitches the same length.

Quilting Service:

Pantograph edge to edge quilting - the pattern is quilted from side to side over the whole quilt. You choose the pattern from the ones I have and then personalise it further by choosing from a wide variety of threads either solid or variegated colours. (thread included in price).

Supplies

Thread - I use 'King Tut by Superior' quilting thread and either have in stock or can order the full range.

Waddings including:

50/50 cotton/bamboo - sew simple - a really soft, low loft wadding that drapes well. 92" and 124" wide. My most popular wadding!

100% polyester - sew simple, 92" wide

100% polyester - Hobbs polydown 108" wide - ideal for handquilting or where a deeper loft is wanted

Fusible - useful for wallhangings and bags but not recommended for quilts 35 1/2" wide (90cm)

Thermal insulated - ideal for household items or coolbags 45" wide (115cm)

sew simple 60/40 black wadding 90" wide

Backing fabrics - 108" wide fabrics for backing quilts without having to join pieces together for most size quilts. Please note these are top quality moda backing fabrics and not sheeting.
