Binding services

Do you hate to do the binding, and wish your quilt was completely finished when you got it back from long-arming?  I can do that!  I offer binding services- you provide the yardage, and I will make & apply the binding on your quilt.
There are two options for this:  I can sew the binding to the front of the quilt by machine, and you can do the hand-stitching to the back.  Add up all the sides of your quilt & multiply by .05 to get the price.  For example, a 72 x 90 quilt would be $16.20 for front-only binding.
Or, I can do a complete binding, for .075/running inch.  So, a 72 x 90 quilt would be $24.30 for a complete binding.  Your quilt would be completely finished with this option.
Just bring the yardage along with your quilt, and I will do the rest.  If you aren't sure how much fabric you will need, I can help you with that.
Add up all the sides of your quilt and divide by 40.  Round up to the next number and multiply by 2.5.  This will give you the amount needed for your binding.  In the 72 x 90 quilt example, 72 + 72 + 90 + 90= 324.  324 divided by 40 = 8.1, round up to 9.  Then take 9 times 2.5, and get 22.5.  This is how much fabric you'd need to buy to send along for me to make your binding.  It would be best to add a few extra inches to that number, in case the cut edges are not straight, just for insurance.
