Information on preparing your quilt top

Below are some simple tips for preparing your quilt top before bringing it to me for quilting.

  • Clip all threads
  • Secure all Seams
  • Stay stitch around perimeter of top and back
  • Press quilt top and back
  • Remove all salvages
  • Make sure quilt top and back are square with straight boarders.
  • Back should be 8 inches longer and wider than quilt top. (Batting also if you supply)
  • Any fullness will cause puckers when quilting is done. We will try to work them out as much as we can
  • Mark the top of the quilt with a safety pin.
  • Batting and backing can be supplied at an additional charge.
