NEW!!! Bare Bones Quilting -If you have a quilt that just never got quilted or you just don't want to spend a lot of money on getting it quilted, this is the category for you.
What is bare bones quilting? It is a medium to large meander done throughout the whole quilt, including borders. This is very economical but you will still end up with a beautiful quilt with the outstanding workmanship that you are used to receiving from Quilts by Barb.
With bare bones quilting, your quilt is returned to you untrimmed. This saves me time and you money!!
Some restrictions apply to bare bones quilting.

All other Machine Quilting
QUILTING - There is usually 2 - 4 inches of shrinkage (width and length) from before to after quilting. The price for quilting is the size of your quilt top before quilting. All quilts will be returned trimmed even with the quilt top unless the customer requests to have their quilt returned untrimmed.
Designer overall designs - .022 per sq inch – Tell me what you want; I probably can come up with it! Also great on “busy” quilts but just a step above. If separate designs are quilted in the borders, custom quilting rates apply.
Custom quilting - .03 per sq inch and up - This is the category of most quilts. It includes outline quilting and stitch in the ditch for stabilizing, a design in empty blocks and freehand quilting. Custom quilting includes quilting in the borders. This is the category I am famous for!
Heirloom quilting - .04 and up per sq inch and up - This is more intensive quilting with stitch in the ditch, stencils or patterns. It also includes more complicated patterns and crosshatching. This may include a background filler. Quilts with a lot of applique also fall into this category.
BATTING –The following types of batting are available:
Thin polyester - $8.00 linear yard
Warm and Natural 50/50 or Hobb's 80/20 - $10.75 linear yard
Quilter’s Dream Poly-Select Black- $10.75 linear yard (This batting is a must in those dark quilts. Quilts up beautifully!)
THREAD - Regular thread - $1.00 per bobbin used.
Specialty threads, such as variegated, jean thread, metallic, etc are
also available. $2.00 per bobbin used.
Backing – I would be happy to provide the perfect backing for your quilt. I have white-on-white and different tan tones on hand at all times. I also hand dye A LOT of custom backings for quilts. I offer a huge price break on hand dyed backings for quilts that are quilted at Quilts by Barb. Please ask for details and pricing.

BIAS BINDING is also available. The charge is $3.70 per linear foot.
SHIPPING CHARGE - $15.00 per order shipped. This is the approximate cost for UPS shipping and insurance for one quilt. If I return more than one in one shipment, the cost is still $15.00
