    No one who charges only $300 for custom quilting three queen/king quilts is worth an 18 month wait, imho. For a wait that long, it'd have to be either Joe the Quilter or Michael James for me to put up with it (and their rates would be sky high). Glad you're happy with both the quality and the time.

    4 weeks sounds good to me. Most LAQers here have waiting lists of about 6 mos. to a yr.

Will have to try this one when I finish my 2 quilts I am working on now.
    Sounds as if she's constantly bumping your quilts, for others!

    We have a LAQ up here in the Thumb of Michigan whose turnaround time is usually a day-hardly time to make it back home. LOVE HER!!!

    My normal turn around is 4 to 6 weeks. I do not have a computerized machine. If I don't move the machine it doesn't move. I know the computerized machines can do the work faster but they can't do the personailzed quilting so decide what type of quilting you want before you start contacting longarmers.

    1-2 months here..that is another resaon I decided to do my own. I was so worried not to have my Christmas gifts done the first couple times I did it. I bought the Janome 7700, totally worth it....someday I would love to buy a long arm just no room.
