Machine Quilting Preparation

  • The quilt top and backing must be pressed and squared up.
  • All loose threads must be snipped
  • All seamed edges must be basted to ensure they do not come loose.
  • If the backing is pieced, all salvage edges must be trimmed.
  • Pieced borders must have a stabilizing stitch 1/4 inch from all 4 edges.
  • Please do not baste, pin or tack the top, batting and backing together.
  • Batting and backing must be a minimum of 4 inches larger than the quilt top on all 4 sides.
  • Please let us know the preferred direction of your quilt, if applicable.
A base charge of $20 will be charged if any of the above must be done before quilting. Any additional time will be billed at $15 per hour.

Your quilt is important to us. Please remember than any puckers and fullness cannot be hidden in the quilting, but every effort will be made to accentuate the work you have created. We reserve the right to refuse any quilt, batting or backing.
