Longarm Quilting

Smartfrog offers a bespoke quilting service using the Longarm quilting machine for either pantograph or custom quilting designs.

Basting

Smartfrog can baste the quilt layers for you leaving you free to hand quilt your own designs.

Edge to Edge Quilting

An overall design, provides an even coverage of quilting and gives a professional finish to the quilt. Choose from a wide range of patterns to complement and enhance your piecing.

Custom Quilting

If you have something special in mind I would need to see your quilt and discuss the design before estimating a price.

Binding

Smartfrog can make French doublefold binding from your material and attach to the front of the quilt, leaving you to turn and complete the back.   Alternatively, we can do this on your behalf.

Threads

I have a range of 100% cotton threads including Signature and King Tut. I also have a range of other threads including So Fine by John Flynn, Bottom Line by Libby Lehman, Rainbows and Metallics by Ricky Timms and Superior.

Wadding

I offer waddings in a variety of widths, both 100% cotton, cotton and polyester 80/20 and needle felted polyester. Prices start from £7.50 per metre.
