Quilt prep

Please iron & square up your quilt top. Trim any loose threads.

Do not pin baste or spray baste your quilt.

If your quilt has a specific direction, please mark the top with a safety pin.

Please iron & square up your backing fabric. An additional $50 will be added to square up your quilt back.

Quilt back & batting must be minimally 4" larger than your quilt on each of the 4 sides.

Example: if your quilt top is 40” x 48”, then your quilt back needs to be 48” x 56”.

Make sure that all seams are tight enough to handle being stretched on a frame.

Warm & natural cotton batting, or quilters dream washable wool batting, is preferred. (Quilters dream cotton batting stretches on the long arm frame, & results in uneven areas of thickness & puckering. Unfortunately, i will not accept quilters dream cotton batting.) Alternatively, I can provide batting @ NYC retail price.

Puckers, tucks, frayed seams, and fullness cannot be quilted out!!

I will provide you a choice of thread colors to match your quilt top & back, cost: $3.00/ bobbin.

Trimming of your completed quilt is also not included.
