Below are some helpful tips and answers to frequent questions.
Preparing Your Quilt Top and Backing
- Make sure you have squared your quilt top and backing.
- Your backing should be 3" larger than your quilt top on all sides. For example, if your quilt top
is 50" x 70" your backing should be at least 56" x 76".
- Iron the quilt top and bottom so that all seams are laying flat.
- There is no need to pin or baste your quilt top to the back or batting.
- If your quilt top or backing has a top or bottom, please mark this.
- Remove all loose threads so nothing shows through the finished quilt.
- Fullness, puckers, and uneven borders will not magically disappear during the longarm quilting process. I will do my best to work with these potential issues, but may not be able to alleviate them. Additional charges may incur.
