Holiday Quilt Cutoff is October 1st
Get your quilts in now before Ellen has her hands full!
Drop a quilt off by October 1st and we will guarantee you will have that quilt back in time for holiday gift giving this year. 

CALL NOW to make an appointment - 727-935-1739 #1

In October we are anticipating a 7 week turnaround.
Right now we are already 5 weeks!
The earlier you get your quilt in the sooner you will get it back.
Prepare Your Backing Appropriately!

For quilts 60" and Smaller
Backing must be 4" wider on all 4 sides.

For quilts 60" and Wider:
Backing must be 6" wider on all 4 sides

Is your backing a single fabric or too close to the size of the top? Sew on scrap fabrics to the sides to get the proper width and length. We can center the quilt to your fabric and still have enough to put it on the frame.

We love selvages on backs, don't cut these off!
Selvages are straight edges which makes it easier for us to load.

If you are unsure if your backing has a straight edge,
snip and rip along the grain to get a straight edge.

  • Cotton Select White
