Quilt Preparation


A few notes on preparing your quilt and backing fabric

  • Keep all layer separate no need to pin or baste together
  • Check all seams for gaps or loose stitches
  • Trim all loose threads front and back
  • Square your quilt top and backing fabric
  • Press the quilt top, making sure the seams lay as flat as possible.
  • Backing fabric must be at least 4" - 6" larger than the quilt top on all sides, to accommodate loading onto the machine
  • Mark the top of your quilt if directional.  A safety pin or piece of fabric loosely stitched near the top works well
  • If you need to join the backing fabric.  First remove the selvedge and stitch using 1/2" seam allowance. Press the seam open. 
  • Optional: If you do not purchase the wadding from us make sure that it is the same size as the backing fabric
  • Optional: if you would like us to complete your quilt and attach the binding please provide the binding 2 1/2" width and 12" longer then the measurement around the quilt edge.  For example 2 x length + 2 x width + 12" to allow fro corners and joining.
Please note that quilts should be free from embellishments, beading or buttons.  Any trimmings should be added after the quilt is returned.
