Custom Longarm Quilting

I know how much work has gone into the special quilt top that you’ve finished. I’ve been there. You’ve selected a pattern and fabrics and have spent countless hours cutting, piecing and pressing. Now you want that top to become a finished quilt. I would love to help make that easy!

I specialize in custom longarm quilting. All my quilting is hand-guided using various free-motion quilting techniques and longarm rulers. I work with my clients to design quilting that will enhance each block and design of your quilt.

I’m based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, but I love to work with clients from anywhere! I quilt on my Handi Quilter Amara with a 12-foot frame and can quilt up to king-sized quilts.

Longarm quilting is my passion. I’ve worked on quilts of all sizes from traditional to modern and would love to work with you. You’ll find lots of information on these pages, but please reach out if you have any questions!

I am fully booked for quilting services for all of 2022 and 2023. To sign up for my email list to be the first to know when spots open up, click here.

If you are looking for recommendations for other longarm quilters, these are some friends of mine who I have sent many clients to. For all-over quilting I recommend Third Coast Quilting and for custom quilting I recommend Pierce St. Quilts and Lovely Threads.


In general, custom quilting is overwhelming because the possibilities are endless, but Kristin made the process incredibly easy and fun. Kristin’s eye for design and overall talent is truly impeccable. I would highly recommend her to anyone and I can’t wait to use her again!

Kristin is a joy to work with. She takes the time to preview quilting designs with me. We chat about her ideas and my ideas to come up with a beautiful product.

Kristin cares about your quilt being your creation; she talks to you about design, thread color and what you want in the outcome. I had a vintage top with beautiful hand appliqué and embroidery and Kristin and I collaborated on the quilting design to keep it vintage. I would not hesitate to recommend her work and I’m working to finish another quilt to send her.

Kristin is the longarm quilter that truly added the finishing touches to this quilt top. Every square she created a custom design perfect for the artwork in that square. I did not know Kristin before I asked her to longarm this quilt. I went searching on Instagram and stumbled upon her. Boy did I hit the jackpot! I can’t say enough good things about her customer service and quality of work. Thank you Kristin!!!
