             HELPFUL INFORMATION              

PRICING - See the pricing sheet for a complete list of services and prices. To calculate the square inches of your quilt measure the width and the length and multiple. 88” x 94” equals 8,272 square inches. To calculate the linear inches of your quilt add the top and bottom measurements together with the left and right side measurement.  88” + 88” + 94” + 94” equals 364 linear inches.  I charge by the square inch and the rate depends on the type of quilting being done.   I have a $75 minimum charge for edge to edge quilting.

MAXIMUM QUILT SIZES - The largest width top I can quilt is 122" wide.  The largest width backing I can quilt is 130" wide.  This is large enough for an eastern king quilt.  I have no restrictions on quilt lengths.  Do check your batting sizes.  Batting should be 3-4" larger, on all sides, than your quilt top.

MARK THE TOP - Mark the top of your quilt so I don’t quilt it upside down. If your backing has a top please mark this as well.

SQUARE YOUR QUILT - Please make sure your quilt top is as square as possible. If your quilt top is not square your completed quilt will most likely not be square. Please make sure your quilt backing is square. If not, it is possible puckers or pleats could occur in your finished quilt.

PRESS/IRON YOUR QUILT - Press/iron your quilt top flat, from the back, to help direct your seams. Press/iron your backing flat, from the back, to help direct your seams. If there are wrinkles in your quilt and/or your backing they will be quilted into the quilt.

TRIM THREADS - Trim all or close to all loose threads. Should excessive trimming be be required you will incur a fee of $30.00. Check your quilt for pins.

REPAIR LOOSE SEAMS - Look over your quilt top and repair any loose seams. The longarm machine foot could possibly catch the loose seam and rip your quilts. Nancy Duncan Quilts will not be held responsible if this happens.

SECURE BORDER SEAM - If your quilt top does not have a solid border (the border is pieced) you may want to add 3-4 stitches, 1/8” from the edge, across the seams located around the perimeter of your quilt top to prevent the quilt top from stretching as it is loaded and unloaded from the machine frame.  I do not recommend stitching the entire outside edge of the quilt as it could cause distortion on the outside edge.

DO NOT BASTEKeep all of your layers separate, do not baste them. Each layer is added to the quilt frame separately.

BACKING LARGER THAN TOP - Please make your quilt backing 4-8” larger than your quilt top on all sides. The extra backing is needed to properly load the quilt on the frame. Please make sure your batting is as big as the quilt backing. Please limit all backing fabric seams to horizontal when at all possible.

BINDING - Client supplied binding should be in a length sufficient to bind quilt, should be 2.5” wide, pressed in half length wise, and be ready to be attached.  If you would like the binding to be made from the remainder of the backing fabric after the quilting is completed there will be an additional $30.00 for cutting, seaming, and ironing the backing fabric prior to machine stitching.


MACHINE QUILTING DISCLAIMER - Longarm sewing machines are mechanical devices and on rare occasions mechanical problems can develop which may result in minor damage to a quilt top and/or backing.

ALLERGEN NOTICE - My home is smoke free and cat free however we do have dogs.  All quilt tops are placed on hangers and enclosed in garment bags until quilted.  They are then placed in plastic quilt bags.  My floors are swept daily and mopped weekly.  Everything possible it done to keep dog hair to a minimum, except getting rid of the dogs.

SHIPPING - Quilts needing to be shipped will ship USPS Priority Mail at your expense. Shipping costs will be added to the final invoice.

SALES TAX - If your quilt is shipped out of California I will not charge sales tax. For all other quilts California Sales Tax in the amount of 7.25% will be charged.  There is some confusion about sales tax and services but, in California, sales tax must be paid on services that are involved in the creation of new personal property.  The state ruled in 1951 that quilting services were subject to sales tax.  I do not charge sales tax on washing, drying, ironing, and trimming.  I will charge sales tax on quilting, batting, backing, and binding.

PAYMENT - Any quilt left for more than 30 days after completion and invoicing will be sold to settle the account. I accept cash, checks, and credit cards (3% processing fee applies).
