Preparing Your Quilt Top

I have listed a few things to help you prepare your top for quilting:

  • Make sure you have squared your quilt top and backing.
  • Backing and batting needs to be at least 3” larger than your quilt top all around.  If quilt is 52 x 72 then the backing needs to be 58 x 78.
  • Please do not pin or baste your quilt.
  • Press quilt top and backing so that all seams are laying flat.
  • If your quilt has a top and bottom, please mark.
  • Clip and remove all loose threads so that nothing shows through when your quilt is finished.
  • Wavy borders are a problem. Fullness and puckers cannot be quilted out. I have an information sheet that shows how to attach borders the proper way. If you would like this sheet, please email or call me and I will send it to you.
  • Any additional services, piece backing, press top, press backing or any repairs needed - $15.00



Please feel free to email or call me if you have any questions.

This is your quilt and we will work together to create a cherished keepsake!

Thank you,
