Professional Longarm Quilting

Turning your quilt tops into finished quilts - helping you to create memories for future generations.


How is the best way to apply borders to my quilt?

Borders do tend to grow and get very friendly (wave at you) if not done correctly. Learn how to apply borders that lay flat, it doesn't take any more time to do it the right way and the results are so much better.

  • Trimmed my quilt, pinned it up on my design wall. It looks so amazing!! I love all that you did. Thank you so much!!

    Laura F., California
  • Debra! Just received my quilt you finished for me and it's FABULOUS! Can't wait to send you more! Thank you

    Joy L., Florida
  • Her work is excellent, her prices are awesomely competitive and she’s kind. Never a word about wonky blocks, questionable piecing techniques or the occasional wavy border. Her philosophy is that all quilts deserve to be finished. She has a nice variety of patterns to choose from as well as options on how “finished” you want your quilt to be.

  • i Debra - I just love my quilt and could hardly wait to get home and spread

    it out and look it over.   I'm glad you took the time to make it extra

    special.  I keep looking and looking at it and finding someplace new where

    you did new stitches.   Love all the little circles and the borders.

    Thank you,

  • HI Debra - am home now, admiring your lovely work! Thanks so much for the very quick turnaround. I hope I can construct at least one more quilt top while I am here -- for your talented needle.

  • I can't thank you enough for how you finished my quilt. I love it.

  • A couple of years ago my pile of quilts that needed to be quilted was growing, so I started looking on line for someone  more reasonable than the big quilt stores where I live. I chose Quilters Touch and sent my quilt off.

    I was very pleased with the promptness and workmanship of the quilting,as it was for a wedding gift.  I have since had another quilt, quilted by Debra with the same results and plan to send more to be done in the future. So glad she is still quilting  in a new location.

  • "After my daughter-in-law's mother died, I made a quilt out of her clothing as a memorial. Obviously this quilt was extremely sentimental so I did a lot of research on the Internet to find someone dependable who could handle the job with care. From her first email to the lovely finished product, Debra was professional, competitively priced and extremely responsive. Her work is beautiful and you will not be disappointed."

  • I found Debra online a couple of years ago and looked at her gallery of happy customers and decided to have her long arm quilt my hand painted bird and cat quilt. All I had to do was send her the top, the batting and the backing, all separately and she put them all together for me with a lovely stitch I choose from her many designs.

    She did a great job and the turnaround time was about 10 days and at a very reasonable price too. I would definitely use her again and highly recommend her work.

  • It was the habit of our quilting group that while traveling they would stop in at quilt shops and bring back a yard or so of a fabric to give each member a square.  Once traveling in Arkansas found a shop that accepted mail order quilting for a very good price.  Unfortunately that shop went out of business, but I think they recommended Debra Pugh, but I am a little fuzzy on that point.  Anyway quilting in California was so high that it was more economical to pay shipping both ways and quilting fees and still costing less than CA quilters.  I found Debra Pugh quilting service to be a very good quality and the pattern selection extensive.  Shipping and returns were handled with care and promptness.  Unfortunately, my eyesight is getting so bad I don't quilt anymore but if I did I would certainly use her services again and recommend them to friends.  As I have.

About Debra

I began quilting many years ago when my youngest moved away to college although I was exposed to quilting at a young age by my grandmother and mother who were both quite creative. But when my youngest moved out I felt I needed a hobby and then decided to get my first longarm quilting machine and I have loved it ever since. I started out in Carthage Missouri and now live in northern Indiana (by way of southern California) and work out of our home here. It was quite the change moving from the sun to the cold again but I am adjusting quite well but I am glad I don’t have to drive anywhere to get to work. I started longarm quilting for customers in 2007 and have a Gammill Classic Plus hand guided quilting machine, every design that I make is hand guided, either free motion or for the more elaborate custom quilts I also will use rulers to help guide the machine.
