Edge to Edge Quilting​ (E2E)

All over / edge-to-edge designs are 3¢ per square inch (psi) with a minimum charge of $50.

For example: your quilt top is 60 inches by 80 inches = 4800 sq in

4800 x 3¢ psi = $144

*CDN currency



As a convenience, batting is available in my studio for purchase. You are welcome to provide your own high quality batting.

I use and stock Arctic 96" and 124" wide batting. Arctic batting is mechanically cleaned without the use of harsh chemicals and provides wonderful results in its drape and lightness.

Cost is calculated by the linear inch.

I cut only what is needed for your quilt (smallest side + a 5" margin)


Cotton/poly blend 96":           48¢ /in (~$19 /m)

Cotton/poly blend 124":          54¢ /in (~$21 /m)

Cotton (white) 96":                  69¢ /in (~$27 /m)

Bamboo/cotton blend 98":   53¢ /in (~$21 /m)

Often, arrangements for other types of batting (wool, poly etc) can be made.  Please let me know when you book your quilt.

*CDN currency. Batting is a separate charge and is NOT included in the square inch price, nor available for discounts.


My personal style is to match or blend thread colour with

the lighter (or focal) areas of your quilt. 

From experience, I find this gives the best results.​


If you have something else in mind, please let me know. 

Your quilt deserves quality thread.

I quilt with Glide (40 wt), So Fine (50 wt) and Botton Line (60 wt).


I don't charge extra fees for thread use.

It is included in your square inch price.​

I'm not a professional photographer. I wish!

But I do my best to take "nice" photos of your quilt. :)

Upon completion of the quilting,

I will take photos of your quilt in my well-lit studio.
Please, let me know if you would like copies of them.


I am happy to share those images with you to use however you would like, I just ask that you credit me for the photo/quilting if posting publicly.

There is no extra fees for this.

As well, I will ask you if I may share photos of your quilt on my own social media and how you would prefer to be credited for your work.

How to get your quilt to me

I live in Grande Prairie, Alberta. I accept local quilts and quilts by mail.

Local Quilters:

2 options: drop off at my home studio or drop off at Around the Block Quilt Shop in Beaverlodge.

*handy tip - clearly label your quilt/quilt bag with your name & contact info and have it in a clear, homemade or otherwise noticeable bag (NOT a black garbage bag - this is never a good idea!)

Shipping your quilt:

Protect your quilt top from any possible moisture during transit and place in a cardboard box or other protective wrapping.

Canada Post has some great flat rate box options for you to consider.

As a convenience to you (and to reduce shipping fees), you are welcome to purchase batting from me. If you are purchasing your backing fabric online, you are welcome to have it shipped directly to me, to save on shipping.

Return shipping:

I will send your quilt back to you in the same manner described above via Canada Post (using a flat rate box when possible/economical). I will provide you with a tracking number and charge you the Canada Post rate plus $5 for handling.

Other Services


You are welcome to prepare your own binding, but keep in mind that my binding prices include prepping the binding for you.*

Simple: 10¢ per linear inch (machine bind to one side only)

Complete: 19¢ per linear inch (machine bind both sides)

Hand Binding: 30¢ per linear inch (machine sew to front and hand stitch to back).

Big Stitch Binding: 30¢ per linear inch (machine sew to front and big stitches on the back).

*make sure to provide enough fabric! Measure the full perimeter of your quilt and add and extra 10-12 inches. Take that number and divide it by 40. This will tell you how many strips you will need (round up to a whole number). Multiply how many strips are needed by your binding width preference (ie 2.5"). This will tell you how many inches of a fabric cut you will need (I suggest you round up a tiny bit).

Keep in mind that  the largest king quilt uses about .75m of fabric for its binding.

Piece backing

$5 - $10 per seam

Rush Request (*may not always be available)

<5,000 sq inches: $25

>5,001 sq inches: $50

Basting your quilt

If you would prefer to quilt/free motion your own quilt at home but dread the basting process - I can baste all your layers together with large stitches using contrasting thread (1¢ per square inch) *min charge $50

Complimentary Trimming

Opțional complimentary service.

Let me know if this is something you like me to do or if you prefer to do for yourself.

* if your quilt has borders that are anything but square/rectangle, I prefer to leave the trimming to you.

Pressing & Trimming Threads

Should your quilt require extra attention prior to loading, there may be additional charges. I'll let you know in advance!



After the work is complete, I will forward you an invoice (text or email).

I accept cash, cheque or e-transfer (

I really do appreciate timely payments as that enables me to get your project(s) back to you right away.
