Preparing Your Quilt for Long Arm Quilting

For the very best results, it's important to take the time to prepare your quilt top and backing prior to sending me your project. 

Backing - make sure that your backing is 4" larger than your quilt top on all sides. Press 1/2" backing seams open and remove all salvages.

Quilt Top - square up, press and clip all loose threads. Attach borders properly to ensure there are no wavy edges. (See Borders for more information.) If the border is pieced, stitch 1/4" from the edge around the perimeter of your quilt top (stay stitch).  Mark the top of the quilt with a safety pin.
