To those that are unfamiliar or new to long arm quilting terms let me explain what is edge to edge quilting refers to. Edge to Edge quilting is just what it says, it is quilting from one edge of the quilt to the other edge. Then to the next row, starting at the edge and quilting across to the other edge. By turning the quilt on the frame and continuing quilting from edge to edge until the entire quilt is quilted. The entire quilt will be finished with an over all design. Sounds simple enough right?
The hard choice is what design to quilt from edge to edge and the density of the design. Another deciding factor would be if the quilt would benefit from an edge to edge design. Only the owner of the quilt can make that decision. I can make suggestions, but the owner of the quilt has the final say, they are the ones that will enjoy the quilt for years to come. Quilts that are very busy could benefit from an edge to edge quilting design. Edge to Edge quilting is less expensive than custom quilting because it is less time-consuming.
