I have a quilt top finished that I'd like to take to a local longarmer to do just the quilting for me. I like doing the binding so I just want it quilted. I will be taking my own batting and backing.
I've never had anyone do my quilting so I'm not sure what to ask, such as do I need to ask what kinds of quilt designs they do; should I ask to see some finished work; do they use their own thread, etc. ? Are there any other things I should be asking?
Something else I'm kind of concerned about is...will they be critical of my work? I know I'm not perfect, but I don't want the "quilt police" to judge me.
