Please read the following before delivering your quilt to us.
Considerations before delivering your quilt for Long Arm Quilting:-
- Trim all loose threads on the back of your quilt top as they may show through light colored fabrics
- Trim loose threads on the top as they will interfere with machine quilting
- Please make sure all seams are secure (particularly those along the edge of your quilt top)
- Seam allowances should be pressed appropriately
- Check that twisted or dark seams are trimmed so they won’t show through to the front
- Seams need to be pressed correctly for best stitch-in-the-ditch results
- If the borders are longer than the top and applied without proper and accurate measuring, the top will not lay flat. Pleats and puckers will develop during the machine quilting process.
- To apply borders properly:
- Measure your pieced top center (before the borders are added).
- Lay your top out on a flat surface and measure at least three different places across the width and length.
- If these measurements are not the same, take the average measurement and use this for cutting the borders.
- Apply each border to the quilt top evenly – divide the quilt top and border into quarters (or eighths) and ease or slightly stretch between marks, to make the border to fit.
- Fullness and or puckers within a border cannot be quilted out. I will try my best to work in some fullness, but I cannot guarantee that puckers and tucks will not be sewn in. Just remember, the flatter your quilt top lays, the better your finished quilt will look.
- If your quilt is directional, please indicate the top of your quilt top with safety pin
- no embellishments please, as they interfere with machine quilting
- If you piece your back, I cannot guarantee that the top will be perfectly centered on the back..
- Please do not layer top, batting and backing (no basting required)
