Longarm Quilting & Custom Quilts

Share

Lady Bird Quilts provides longarm quilting services in a wide range of designs and we make custom quilts to order.  Prices for special order quilts vary so contact us for a quote.

We quilt on an APQS Millennium Longarm Quilting Machine which has a 14’ frame that can accommodate the largest quilts.  It incorporates the state of the art IntelliQuilter computerized quilting system to stitch digital designs with incredible precision.  We can make your quilt look its very best!  Whether quilting your latest project or perhaps a heirloom quilt top that you have inherited, we would love to help you.

Quilting Prices:
Basic edge to edge quilting is priced at 2 cents per square inch.
Individual Blocks with up to 4 designs are 2.5 cents per square inch.
Custom Quilting all over is 3.5 cents per square inch.

We sell Premium Quality 108” width, 100% cotton tonal printed quilt backing fabric in a variety of patterns and colors for $10.00 per linear yard or we would be happy to use your own special backing, just make sure the backing is at least 6″ larger than the top on all 4 sides.  We carry two different types of quilt batting (sold by the linear inch so you only but what you need) or you may supply your own quality batting.

We create unique Memory Quilts to commemorate the special times and defining moments in the lives of you and your loved ones.  These can include pictures, t-shirts, military colors and seals, fabric in theme or collegiate prints and much more.  These quilts are beautiful reminders of what we cherish and you can use and enjoy them for a lifetime.  Our Quilt and Fabric shop is located at 7161 Highway 90 in Grand Ridge, Florida where we are open from 9 to 4 every Saturday.  You can also pick and drop off quilts by appointment at my quilting studio which is conveniently located close to I-10 about 30 minutes west of Tallahassee just south of Greensboro, FL. Give us a call at 850-329-8276 or message us (click contact above) to discuss your quilting project today!

Memories…

Share

This is a Memory Quilt made by my sister Iris Melvin to capture memories of Earl Franklin.  His wife, Dorothy asked Iris to make a quilt out of several of Earl’s cowboy shirts as a present for Brian Hunt who was like a son to them.  Iris also incorporated pictures of Earl, Dorothy and Brian along with appliqués of a couple packs of Earl’s trademark Winstons.  She did not sew down the flap of the pocket Earl carried his cigarettes in so she could slip a real pack in the pocket.  The back is a nice comfortable plaid.  Since Earl loved his boots, fishing and Brian, I quilted it in Cowboy Boots, Fish and Teardrops.  Gone but always remembered…

Musical Santa Christmas Throw

Share

This throw was made for Sonya Wiley by Lady Bird Quilts.  It was made from a linen tablecloth that belonged to her mother.  Sonya remembers this tablecloth being on their table for many years.  It features Santa Claus singing Christmas carols and playing a variety of traditional musical instruments surrounded by holly.  The Santa squares are stripped together with a traditional Christmas print that Sonya found and it’s backed it with the same material.  The binding is cut from our Tonal Vineyard Hunter Green 108” fabric.  I quilted it in Musical Bells & Candy Canes.  A Christmas tradition preserved!
