Welcome to DDQuilts!

DDQuilts is a Maine based longarm machine quilting business, owned and operated by me, Diane Dixon. I have been making quilts for 30+ years and come from a long line of quilters! I've been longarm quilting for over 15 years, starting out with a 17" mid-arm and after 2 years upgraded to a Nolting Pro 24" with IQ. I use pantographs and also provide custom quilting for my customers. I have taken classes with a number of internationally famous quilters including Jamie Wallen, Angela Walters, DeLoa Jones, Karen McTavish, Kelly Cline, Laurie Tigner and Vicki Ibison. 


  • Make sure your borders lie flat. Trim all loose threads. Press the top to ensure that the seams all lie flat  Repair any seams that are separating. 

  • Make sure your quilt top is square

  • Backing: be sure your backing is also square. An extra 4-6 inches on all sides is a minimum. 

  • Batting: I can provide batting (cotton, wool or poly) or you can provide your own. 

  • Thread: I will supply the thread for your quilt. I keep a wide variety of colors and types of thread on hand for you to choose from.

  • Quilting Designs: If you have an idea of what you want on your quilt, be sure and tell me. If you just don't have any idea what to do with the quilting, we can discuss some ideas.

  • Pricing: Pricing is based on the size of the quilt and the difficulty of the quilting design chosen.

  •  When we meet and examine your quilt, you should plan to discuss the thread, batting, quilting design, and any preferences you may have regarding your quilt.

  • If you have any questions regarding your quilt, feel free to email me with any concerns or questions here.
