How To Prepare Your Top For Quilting

How To Prepare Your Top For Quilting:

There are several things that you, the wonderfully skilled or adventurous beginner can do to prepare your top for long arm quilting:

1. Please press both the top and backing.

2. The top, batting and backing should not be pinned or basted together.  If they are, I have to remove all of it prior to loading it onto my machine.

3. The backing needs to be about 4-5 inches longer and wider than the top.  I need that space for pinning and clamping.

4.  The backing also needs to be square.  If it isn’t, I can square it up for you for an additional fee.  Keep in mind, squaring will need additional fabric, and the end result MUST be 4-5 inches longer and wider than the top.  Sooo, if you would like me to square it up, I strongly recommend having the backing about  foot longer than your top.

5. When in doubt, call or email for advice. We’re always happy to help!
