Why custom instead of edge to edge ?

Eureka ...

A new client came into the studio two weeks ago which is nothing out of the ordinary. Most of my clients are new. So first thing I have them do is take out the quilt so one can have a good look at it. Then we ask a list of questions. Whom is this for , this in important because it lets us know if it's for a baby and is going to be washed a million times, it's for a man well then maybe floral flowers are out. You get the picture. What will it be used for ? If this quilt is going on the wall rather than a bed well your going to need it quilted differently. Gravity is not our friend . This question then brings you to battings. Yes your longarmer will ask you questions but that's our job to insure you get the best from us. And some questions may seem silly such as which is the top & bottom of the quilt, but are important because what one person see's maybe another person doesn't. Well this client after all the questions I ask then said could she look at my panto designs . Okay don't get me wrong panto's are great. Today I did a king size quilt using a panto. Finished the quilt in one day. Here's where you as a quilter have to decide do I just let the Longarmer do an all over to keep the costs down or do I pay that little extra for custom? My new client decided to trust and when she picked it up she just loved it.

Then the Eureka came in this client was a referal and she said do what ever I liked ... two more are coming into the studio because she loved the finished quilt. Then she said could we quilt the next two the same way. The answer to that is no. Okay guess one could but here's the thing the next two are different colors so they might have a different feel to them. So no was the answer until we see them. Now can you imagine an all over design on this quilt ? This would be a crime !!!! Just saying when you are trying to decide how to quilt your quilt look at it .Look at the values of the fabric. Creams read where as a busy fabric nothing will stand out. If your learning and want to practise , do it where it doesn't read . When you master it then stitch away where everyone can see your skills. And if you like to piece then bring it to the Longarmer cause they love to quilt.

Your Longarm person is just like your hair dresser, you build a relationship and work together to build trust. I have a client that takes her edge to edge quilts to one longarmer and she brings her custom work to Loopy D's .

So next time you are talking with your longarmer and they ask a ton of questions they are just trying to give you quilt it's shining moment. And we will tell you if an edge to edge is the way to go or maybe a little custom.
