Frequently Asked Questions

Call Barbara at 682-498-0370 to schedule an appointment.  During the appointment, we will complete a “Customer Information Form”.  We will measure your quilt and calculate the estimated costs and time for completion.  In addition, we will estimate costs for batting (by the yard) and thread (by the number of bobbins) provided by BLAQ. 

For quilting services simply bring you quilt top and coordinated backing to BLAQ.  Measure your top and then ensure that your backing material is 6-8” longer on all four side (Top, Bottom, Left Side, and Right Side). 

The Quilting Schedule is based on the order by which they are received.  Scheduling will be discussed during completion of your “Customer Information Form” with Barbara.

A longarm quilting machine can be hand or computer guided.  BLAQ provides computer-quided quilting which means that after selecting a pattern(s) the computer directs the operation of the long arm stitcher. Currently BLAQ does not offer hand-quided quilting.
