Rock Art Quilts in Los Alamos, New Mexico is your source for computerized long-arm quilting services. We specialize in edge-to-edge (E2E) computerized quilting as well as commissioned custom quilts. Our state-of-the-art equipment including a Bernina Q-24 and the Q-Matic computer system lets us offer you a wide range of simple-to-complex designs and provide quick turnaround. We love the creative process of quilting and take pride in helping you achieve the professional, finished product you envision.

Your quilt is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece; let us help you complete it with the perfect combination of thread colors and image designs to bring your quilting vision to life. No quilt is too small; minimum prices for our work start as low as $50. We can accommodate up to 105-inch widths.

We’re Affordable! Quilting prices start at two cents per square inch for all over designs with a beautiful edge-to-edge effect. Prices start at four cents per square inch for custom quilting jobs. Both E2E and custom quilting prices increase depending on the density and complexity of the design. Please refer to the Preparation checklist for quilt requirements.

Too busy to create your own quilt? We can make it for you! Commissioned quilts are priced on a case-by-case basis. Price estimates are free. Please contact us for a consultation.
