Tips for Preparing Your Quilt
Backing should be 6-8”longer and wider then your quilt top.
Quilt top and back should be fully pressed. You may use spray on sizing or light starch when pressing.
Please mark the quilt top if it is directional.
Assure all seams are secure. Staystitch an 1/8” around the edge of your quilt.
If backing is seamed, remove the selvage edge. Use a 1/2” seam and press open, this will result in a flatter seam.
Backing should be washed and pressed - this helps eliminate any bearding.
All quilting costs are considered on the size of the quilt:
L - ______ x W - ______ = _____ sq in
