Your quilt is important to me. In order to guarantee the highest quality and satisfaction in the finished product, please consider the following as you prepare your quilt for quilting:
  • Make sure your seams are well pressed. Top and back should be flat and well pressed.
    (Press seams open on the back fabric)
  • If the quilt has a top and bottom, please mark them.
  • Make sure your backing is at least 4-6" bigger on all sides.
    If you are providing the batting, it should also be at least 4" bigger on all sides than the quilt top.
  • When choosing a back fabric, keep in mind the thread color that you are going to want for the top.
    Light colored thread on a dark back or dark colored thread on a light back will create a major contrast.
  • Ripples in the borders will not "quilt out" so be sure you measure them carefully.
     
  • Please do not bring sheets for back fabric. It causes too many thread breaks.
  • Note: The denser the quilting design the more your quilt will "shrink" during the quilting process.
