Professional Longarm Quilting Service
I have been quilting for over 30 years and after taking my first set of longarm quilting lessons I was hooked and proceeded to purchase a Gammil Classic in 2000. Then in 2015 I upgraded to add the IntelliQuilter. I enjoy designing quilts as well as making quilts for gifts and have given many baby quilts to new moms.
I recently retired from a career in data processing in 2019 and have been busy quilting the accumulated quilt tops. We have been fortunate enough to purchase T-Shirt Quilts of Texas in January of 2020 and David and I are thrilled to be able to continue offering the same quality of quilting services you have come to expect.
Quilt Finishing Services
If you are like most quilters, you love to piece those quilt tops but are then faced with the dilemma of how to handle that large quilt in a small home sewing machine. Hand quilting is one option but that is going to take months and you just don't have that kind of time.
We love quilts, we love to see what you are working on. There are many quilt shops in the Houston area, so we see a variety of quilts. However, my favorite quilt tops come from other areas of the country where the quilt shops have new and different ideas and offerings than what we have locally. I have a 'regular' quilter that lives in the Atlanta area. I 'know' that there are lots of quilters in that area, but she still sends all of her quilts to me. That is a huge responsibility that I take very seriously, and always strive to give her the best job I can.
Bring us the quilt top (or even a pile of blocks) that your mom or grandmother made. We will provide everything needed to turn those quilt tops or blocks into a treasured heirloom that you will be able to pass down to your family.
Express your special sentiments for having a quilt made with a label. Usually placed on the back of the quilt, tell those you love why the quilt was made

What do all those initials mean? BITE, BOM, D9P? Learn some the lingo that quilters use.
Most of the time, rules are a good thing, like stopping at red lights, do unto others and so on. But, in the quilting world we do it differently. I promise the "quilt police" won't come after you!
Whatever the reason you haven't finished your t-shirt quilt, we can help you get a completed quilt that you will treasure.
You have a tied quilt, it's hard to launder. Maybe consider having professional quilted.
