Rock Art Quilts, located in the county of Los Alamos, New Mexico provides computerized long arm quilting services specializing in edge to edge quilting. We use a Bernina Q-24 and the Q-Matic computer system. We have a variety of designs to choose from and we would love to collaborate with you to choose the perfect combination of thread colors and image designs to bring your quilting vision to life. No quilt is too small with the minimum charge of $50. We can accommodate up to 105 inch widths. Quilting prices start at two cents per square inch for all over designs with a beautiful edge to edge effect. Prices increase depending on the density and complexity of the design.
