Long Arm Services - Thread White and Blue runs a computerized Gammill Statler Stitcher with several thousand digital pattern options available.  This top of the line quilting technology delivers consistency and quality of design that will take your quilt to the next level.  There are two price schedules for long arm services.  The first being Edge to Edge(e2e) or pantographs and the second is Custom Quilting.

  • Edge to Edge(e2e) or Pantographs are a design that is selected and repeated over and over to cover the entirety of the quilt.  This is the most popular method and the most cost effective.  Some pantographs start at $0.01 a square inch and go to $0.40 per square inch.  So for example if you were having a queen size quilt 90 x 108 long armed it would cost you $97.20 for basic quilting.  To figure out the cost to have your quilt quilted you would need to take the length x the width to = the total square inches.  Take the total square inches and multiply it by the cost of your selected pantograph will cost.  
  • Custom Quilting -  Custom is just that, anything that is not e2e.  This requires more planning time with the computer and your quilt to achieve that individual look you have been dreaming up.  Custom Quilting starts at $0.035 per square inch.
