Preparing your Quilt for Quilting

Top should be pressed and all loose threads trimmed. Please be aware that fullness and puckers that have been pieced in cannot be quilted out. They will be eased in as well as they can be.

Backing should be squared and at least 8 inches longer and wider than the quilt top. Example: a 45X67 quilt should be presented with at least a 53x75 backing.

  • Selvedges should be removed along seam lines.

  • Any seams should be pressed.

  • Sheets will not be accepted for backings.

Batting should be the same size as the quilt backing.  You can provide your own batting or batting is available from the quilter at additional costs.
