Preparing Your Quilt

  1. Piece backing 4-6 inches larger than your top.
  2. Please trim off the selvage edge before seaming your back. All edges should be square. Bed sheets are usually not suitable because of their high thread count.
  3. Press all top seams.
  4. You provide the Batting (2-4 inches bigger than top).
  5. We provide the Thread. We only use Signature 100% cotton thread and have many solid colors and varigated colors to choose from.
  6. Do not pin or baste the quilt together. We need all three layers separate to load onto our machine.
  7. We are not responsible for tucks in quilting when there is too much fullness in quilt or borders. (tip: when applying borders, measure through the middle of quilt instead of edge)
  8. Include fabric for Binding if you would like us to do the binding.
  9. The top should be free of embellishments such as buttons or beads.
  10. A row of stay stitching will be applied to your quilt 1/4 inch or less away from the edge to stabilize edges. Unless otherwise requested, we will trim your quilt to about 1/4 inch from top edge when we’re finished quilting.
