For beautiful quilting results, prepare your
quilt top & backing fabric with these few steps! 

  • First, Pin a note sheet with your Name and Phone Numberto your quilt! 

  • Trim threads, especially dark ones that may show through lighter fabrics.
  • Check your quilt top for open and missed seams or stitching gaps.
  • For design or pattern consistency use safety pin to mark your quilt top. 
  • Quilt top & backing should be well pressed to prevent pleats in quilting.
  • Fold lengthwise and place on a hanger to prevent wrinkling. 
  • Backing fabric & batting should be 4"wider on all 4 sides than quilt top.
  • I sell batting, but if you provide it, please ensure it's large enough. 
  • Trim all backing fabric edges straight.
  • Remove salvages before stitching backing fabrics together.
  • Stitch backing fabrics together with a double seam, then press to one side.
  • Wait to add embellishments until after quilting has been completed.
  • Quilt top, batting and backing should not be pinned or basted together.

* Please Do Not pin or baste together your quilt top, batting and backing.
   I will charge $10.00 handling fee to remove any and all pins or stitching.
