Quilts by Val Catalog
Quilting thread is color matched as close as possible upon request, otherwise will be black, white, ecru, or grey at my discretion- I will use what I think looks best on each individual quilt.
Personalization of the quilting (name/event/etc. in the actual stitching) is available upon request. This is done at an extra fee of $3.00 per letter and a $10.00 minimum.
Turnaround time for machine quilting is 3 weeks, whole quilts 8 weeks, photo albums 2 weeks, binding 2 weeks.
Rush orders are available for an extra $10.00 for machine quilting and an extra 10% ($10.00 minimum) for whole quilts. Rush orders will be done in 10 days for machine quilting, 6 weeks for whole quilts.
Payment is due when you pick up your quilt, CASH ONLY. If you are not from the area, please use paypal(add $1.00 to the total cost) or mail a money order or cashier's check. If purchasing a whole quilt, a 25% deposit is due when you order, remaining balance is due when your quilt is finished, and the cost of material/batting is due when billed (approximately 1-2 weeks into the process).
If you are not in the Kansas City area: All shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer. Please ship your quilt top, backing, and batting to me. You may include your payment with these quilt pieces if paying by cashier's check or money order. I STRONGLY ADVISE you to purchase INSURANCE! Seller is NOT RESPONSIBLE for lost/damaged items! I also recommend that you seal all items in plastic bags prior to boxing them up for shipment- this will help guard against inclement weather. Please also include payment for RETURN SHIPPING/INSURANCE (cost of return shipping will be your cost plus $2.00 to cover possible added weight from quilting) when you send your quilt. Seller will not purchase insurance unless the cost was included with payment. If return shipping payment is not included, your quilt will be held until payment is received from the buyer.

Buyer supplies: quilt top (pieced together), backing (pieced together), and batting (low loft: 3/4 inch thick or less, can be purchased from wal-mart or any fabric store). Please make batting and backing 4 inches longer and wider than the top. If you are unsure or unable to purchase batting yourself, I will provide it at prices listed below.
Binding services are available for $1.50 a linear foot. Buyer must supply the quilt and the binding material (or purchase in conjunction with other servies). Binding should be cut into 3.5 inch wide strips and sewn together end-to-end into one long piece. The length of the long stip should be a least 12 inches longer than the total perimeter of your quilt. Determine yor perimeter length by measuring the length and width of your quilt. Total perimeter is length + width, then multiply by 2. Example: you have a quilt that is 10 x 20, your perimeter is 60 inches (10 + 20 = 30 * 2 = 60). Your strip should be at least 72 inches long (60 + 12) and your cost will be $7.50 (60 inches / 12 inches in a foot = 5 foot * $1.50 = $7.50).
