Long Arm Quilting

My Quilting Beehive is happy to offer long arm quilting services.  I have the Baby Lock Crown Jewell II machine with a nice selection of Computer Guided designs. Drop off quilts by appointment only. Your quilt will be returned fully quilted with the backing and batting trimmed to 1" larger than the quilt top.
Please call or email with questions.
Quilts are also welcome by mail (Click here for information about the mailing process).  We can communicate by phone and email to make decisions on what will make your quilt perfect! I have set up an account with Fed Ex and will return all quilts via Fed Ex,

One of a Kind Quilting Designs:
I also have the Art and Stitch Program.  This program makes it possible for me to create designs! We can convert line drawings into stitch patterns to make your quilt extra special. The possibilities are endless!

This design was created to match the star printed on the fabric

This was made to recreate an old hand quilting template

I used the "Prince Symbol" to create a special stitch design for this quilt
