Quilt Preparation

Mail or deliver your quilt top, backing and batting. Do not baste, pin or tack your quilt together.
Identify the head of the quilt top and head of back, if necessary.

The quilt backing and batting should be a minimum of 6 inches larger, on all sides, than the quilt top.

IMPORTANT: All quilts are welcome!  
The quilt top should be free of embellishments, such as, buttons, charms, pins and loose threads. 

Check quilt top for seam breaks. Old quilts and hand stitched quilts are prone to seam breaks. These can cause tearing of the quilt top and sometimes the back which can cause snags and uneven stitching. On lighter fabrics, loose threads on the backside of the top will show through. Top and backing should be pressed.

It is not recommended that you use a sheet for your backing fabric. Because of the high thread count in sheets, the quilting stitches tend to sit on top of the fabric rather than sink into the fabric and there will be a problem with skipped stitches. If you must use a sheet, take the sheet out of the package, remove all hems, wash and press and measure against your quilt top. Sheets often run short or narrow compared to quilt tops.

If you want the quilting to be more prominent, choose a solid color fabric or a contrasting thread color. If you prefer the quilting to not be prominent choose a busy print fabric and a matching thread color. Choose a good quality batting such as Quilter's Dream batting for best results.
