Longarm Information

Quilters Quest is fortunate to have a talented team of longarmers who are able to help you put the finishing touches on your quilts. We offer edge to edge quilting, semi-custom, and custom quilting. We can also piece your back, trim it after it has been quilted, attach a sleeve or label, and/or bind it!

We are currently running at a 7 week turnaround time for quilts that need to be longarmed, plus an extra week if it needs binding. If you need your quilt sooner than that, please let us know at and we will get it done for you!! :-)
