FLAT AND EVEN BORDERS:
~ Measure the length of your quilt along the center line and use this measurement to cut the side borders. Stitch border to each side, easing fabric as needed, and press seams.
~ Measure the width of your quilt along the center line and use this measurement to cut the top and bottom borders. Stitch border to top and bottom, easing fabric as needed, and press seams.
~ Press and square up your quilt top, trimming edges and corners evenly.
~ Stay-stitch around the outside edge, slightly less than ¼” in from the edge. This will prevent stretching and keep any seams that extend to the edge from coming unstitched.
~ Clip and remove any loose threads, as they could show through the top or interfere with the quilting process.
~ Do not add beads or other dimensional embellishments until after your top is quilted.
~ If your quilt top has a specific top and bottom, please mark the top edge with a piece of paper indicating “Top” and attach with a safety pin.
~ Please do not baste your quilt layers in any way. Each layer (top, batting, backing) must be loaded separately on the longarm frame.
~ I cannot accept any quilt tops with strong odors, especially from cigarette smoke. The odor can permeate the canvas leads on my rollers, and could transfer to other customers’ quilts.
BACKING AND BATTING:
~ Backing must be at least 8 inches wider and 8 inches longer than the quilt top to allow 4 inches extra on each side while quilting.
~ Batting must also be at least 8 inches wider and 8 inches longer than the quilt top.
~ Remove all fabric selvages before piecing your backing as they can cause puckering. Do not use bed sheets for quilt backings.
~ Square up and press your backing.
~ If your backing has a specific top and bottom, please mark the top edge with a piece of paper indicating “Top” and attach with a safety pin. Note: it is nearly impossible to center an intricately-pieced backing under the quilt top when loading on the long arm machine. For best results, keep the backing simple, and do not attach a label until after the quilting is completed.
