If you are sending in your own backing along with your quilt top, make sure that it is at least 4" larger than your quilt top on all sides. If you are using standard width fabric (42" wide) instead of wide backing fabric (108" wide), you may need to sew your backing fabric together.

If no binding fabric is provided, we will use the fabric left over from the backing for the binding if there is enough.

Long arm quilting

I was very happy with the results on my full/Queen size quilt. Very nice.

I had it trimmed and was glad I did, can’t beat the price of trimming.

Two weeks on the nose, compared to 3 months for my local long armer. Again worth the nominal add on fee for that quick turn around.

Now to bind it

Thanks again and I will return!

Easy!

I loved how easy it was to follow the steps to prepare and send off my quilt to be machine quilted.

I picked a really cute standard design for my baby quilt, but left thread color to be decided by the quilter. It came back on time, looking beautiful. The price was very reasonable and I like that the batting is included. I chose to bind it myself, because that’s what I like to do.

Excellent, as always

Very pleased with the quilting done on my quilt. Length of time from my sending it in to receiving it back was about 8 weeks (NY). I like the convenience of not having to purchase quilt batt, and just being able to package and ship through the PO priority mail. Highly recommend!

Wonderful machine quilting with fast turnaround

I procrastinated getting my daughter's quilt pieced together and put myself in a bind. Instead of calling in favors to local others or family who have long arm quilting machines, I found Missouri Star Co's. expedited quilting service. I'm very pleased with the machine quilting service; the pattern and thread color was left up to the quilter and they made a wonderful choice for the quilt. My quilt was returned within the two week expedited period, actually before, and I had plenty of time to bind it before giving it to my daughter for her graduation. I am happy with the quality, timing, and customer service from Missouri Star Quilt Co. I will definitely use their service again.

Long arm quilting of the last quilt

The last quilt that I sent to you for long arm quilting I was disappointed with as it appears that the quilter didn’t stretch it out on the long arm as good and a thinner batting was used than had been used on the previous two. So far I have purchased 4 machine long arm quilting jobs from MSQC. I have had three to come back. You have my fourth waiting for the long arm now. The work done on the first two was excellent. I was very pleased with the quality. But the third was not done with the same attention to detail in the quilting process or clean up and the batting wasn’t the same as the first two. I hope the one you currently have will be equal to the first two.

Quality Quilting

I love the way my quilts are quilted at MSQ. After spending so much time making a quilt I know it will be finished tp perfection at MSQ. I love the results I have recieved on the quilts I have had done so far and will continue to send my future quilts to the wonderful quilters there.

Blown away

I absolutely love this quilt. They picked the thread and it is perfect. Thank you so much. It is a wedding gift so I was really nervous about it. Will definitely use this service again.

My only complaint is that I did not get a tracking # notice to know it was on the way.

Thanks

Do you happen to have a stack of unfinished quilt tops patiently waiting to be quilted? For many, that final step can seem daunting, but we’re here to help!


What Do You Do With Unfinished Quilt Tops?


Do you happen to have a stack of unfinished quilt tops patiently waiting to be quilted? For many, that final step can seem daunting, but we’re here to help! There are many ways to go about finishing your quilt, from old fashioned hand quilting and straight line machine quilting to free motion machine quilting and even sending in your quilt to be finished professionally on a longarm. There are many quilt top stitching ideas out there. We can also help you learn how to finish a quilt with a sewing machine. But whichever method you choose, we want to help you feel confident in your decision. After all, there’s no wrong way to finish your quilt!


First off, let’s talk about hand quilting. It doesn’t require a sewing machine, but it does require some patience. The easiest method is to hand tie your quilt and Jenny’s here to show you how it’s done.



It’s fairly straightforward and requires a hand quilting needle and a frame or a large hoop. The best thread for hand quilting is either 100% cotton floss or perle cotton. Hand quilting stitches are traditionally small, but more recently, big stitches have been popular in modern quilting. Hand quilting stitch patterns for beginners can be helpful if you’re looking to create a particular design; we recommend trying these quilt stencils to help you get started.


Next up, straight line quilting on your home machine is a popular way to finish your quilt. Some are still asking can I quilt with a regular sewing machine? Yes! Of course you can. It’s less challenging than attempting to free motion quilt at first and it doesn’t require too many adaptations to your machine, just a walking foot. Many beautiful straight line machine quilting designs can be found in Jacquie Gering’s popular books WALK and WALK 2.0 including many easy machine quilting designs for beginners. Learn more about quilting on a sewing machine with Natalie on the Final Stitch. She’ll help you with machine quilting basics like machine quilting instructions for beginners, walking foot quilting patterns, stitch length for stitch in the ditch quilting, and much more.


Now it’s time to talk about free motion quilting. What does free motion quilting mean? It’s a type of quilting you can do on your home machine and it means that you move your quilt freely beneath the needle to create a unique quilted design. It’s not straight line quilting, it’s loops and swirls, and just about anything you can imagine! Now, it does require some specific things to help your free motion experience go well. Some might be wondering, can you free motion quilt with a regular foot? And the answer is no. You will need a special free motion presser foot. It has a spring inside that allows the foot to “hop” and move about freely above your quilt. You can follow along with Jenny in the video below as she demonstrates how to begin free motion quilting on a sewing machine. Learning how to free motion quilt on a regular sewing machine is just like riding a bicycle. It requires plenty of practice!


Finally, if you would prefer to hire someone to finish a quilt, that’s also completely fine! There are many options out there. You can take your quilt top to a local longarmer to have it finished, but if you don't have professional machine quilting services near you, you can send it in to Missouri Star and try our professional 5-star mail-in machine quilting services! Our longarm quilting services are sure to leave you impressed. Our computerized quilting machines, also known as longarms, are programmed with intricate edge to edge quilting designs to elevate your quilt. With hundreds of quilting motifs for machine quilting to choose from, your quilt will have a professional look you’ll love. Long arm quilting pantographs can vary from a simple meander to detailed designs like lush florals, fall leaves, feathers, and designs for holidays and special occasions.


Missouri Star’s amazing long arm quilters will treat your quilt with care from the moment it arrives to the final stitch. Our professional quilting service has been rated by hundreds of quilters and they are happy with the final result. You can have confidence in our mail-in machine quilting services when you see the gallery of beautifully finished quilts. Longarm quilting is a time saver for you and eliminates the stress of quilting with a machine on your own. If you haven’t tried machine quilting services yet, there’s no time like the present.



The Cost of Professional Quilting Services


Machine quilting is amazing, but how much does it cost to have a quilt machine quilted? That depends on how quickly you’d like your quilt back. If you’re not in a hurry, our value machine quilting option takes up to eight weeks from the time we receive your quilt to the time we ship it back to you. Value machine quilting is a bargain at 3 cents a square inch! If you would like your quilt back as soon as possible, we offer priority machine quilting for just 3.5 cents per square inch. The wait time is 10 business days from the time we receive your quilt to the time we ship it back to you. Now, that’s speedy!



How to Choose Machine Quilt Stitch Patterns & Thread


Choosing a beautiful machine quilting pattern is half the fun! We have over 100 computerized machine quilting designs including cute animal patterns from butterflies to birds, classic long arm quilting machine patterns like elegant swirls, brocade, feathers, and paisley, modern stipples, squares, and loops, and holiday quilting designs for Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, the 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! There’s so many machine quilt stitch patterns to choose from to make your quilt design truly shine.



Preparing Your Quilt for Mail-In Quilting


When you send in your quilt to be machine quilted, be sure to include the backing of your choice that’s at least 8” wider than your quilt top on all sides so it can easily work with long-arm machine quilting. You can also order your backing along with your machine quilting order. Check out our selection of 108” wide machine quilting fabric at Missouri Star so your quilt has a smooth finishing touch without any seams on the back. And guess what? Batting is included with your machine quilting order for free!

Caring for Your Handmade Quilt
