Quilt Prep

In order for me to do my best work please make sure of the following:

  • Backing is at least 10 inches wider and 10 inches longer than your quilt top
  • Back and front are pressed
  • Your loose threads are trimmed
  • Your quilt and backing is square
  • Your borders lay flat with no wave
  • Your seams lay flat, preferably pressed open with minimal bulk
  • If your quilt is directional please mark the top
  • If you are supplying batting please make sure it is as big as the backing
  • If your backing is pieced please be aware of seam placement as your quilt top will be centered on the backing width. Preferably have your backing seams run horizontally.
  • Please no shag or minky backing fabrics.
  • When your quilt is perfect my quilting is perfect!
