Density is the closeness of the quilting design in itself. Not the stitch length of the actual stitches. The density of quilting the longarmer performs on a quilt is determined on how the quilt will be used by the receiver of the quilt. Seldom used or used for show on a wall, to cuddle with while watching TV or as a bed quilt? How often will it need to be cleaned? The age of a person utilizing it? These factors are helpful for the longarmer to determined just how to design the quilting. The more the quilt is utilized, the denser the quilting needs to be. The higher the density, the more thread used during longarming. Thus higher prices for quilting. When dropping off your quilt for longarming, be sure to include this information to the longarmer. Communication with your longarmer will assist in a quilt they will be proud to give to you and you in turn to give as a gift to that someone special on your list. Write your post here.
