Ad Astra Quilting


Machine Quilting

Ad Astra Quilting offers two quilting options and a range of pricing for each. The two options, Computer Guided Edge to Edge and Custom, reflect the amount of hands-on involvement in the design and production of your quilting. The price range of each option reflects the density and difficulty of the stitching- the more complex and dense the design the more thread and time necessary to complete and thus the higher the price. All quilting services are priced per square inch.

Computer Guided Edge to Edge

Edge to edge quilting creates a repeating stitch path across the entire quilt. Computer guided stitching creates a perfect repeating pattern every time. The stitch pattern will be scaled to best suit the pieced quilt top while also meeting your budget and intended use. Edge to edge patterns are the most affordable quilting option, using a single thread type (solid colors/variegated/metallic),but sometimes provide the exactly right balance to finish your work. (.015 - .03 /sq. in.)


Custom quilting is designed to enhance and reflect the unique design of your piecework. It integrates whatever method of quilting is necessary to incorporate the quilting stitches with the piecing pattern for the greatest enhancement. The full range of options, computer guided stitch patterns, ruler work, and free motion quilting are utilized to accentuate the color, shapes, and overall composition of the pieced top. Custom quilting is designed to enhance your work, therefore thread selections will also be chosen to reflect the piecing, incorporating between 2-6 thread selections. (.035 - .12/sq. in.)
