Last Updated 10-15-19


At Lone Star Quiltworks we can help you get your quilt tops out of the closet and onto the bed, wall, table or wherever you want to display them.  Your quilting will be done on a computerized twenty-six inch wide Handi Quilter Infinity.  You will be able to pick your pattern, design, and thread with Maegan when you drop your quilt top off. We will give you a written estimate for our services plus an expected completion date.  "Fin" as we affectionately call our Infinity contains many designs housed in his memory that you may choose from. Some may even be combined to create a new pattern of your choice.  Our main focus is not so much "custom" work as getting your quilt top quilted in an efficient manner so you will have little waiting time and can of course buy more fabric from us to move on to your next project! We can do custom designs inside of specific blocks for a slight increase in price.  Come and give us a try or use Norma, Gail, Janet or Dede to help you finish your quilting projects!
