Preparation

Your quilt is important to us. In order to guarantee the highest quality and satisfaction in the finished product, please use the following guidelines:

Quilt Top:
Trim any loose threads to prevent them from showing through the quilt top.
Make sure all seams are pressed flat in desired direction.
Please mark top of quilt with a pin or note.

Quilt Back:
Quilt back needs to be a total of 8 inches longer and wider than the quilt top. Example: If your quilt top is 50 x 50 then the back needs to be 58 x 58. If your backing is bigger than the 8 inches longer or wider, then it needs to be trimmed to the correct size otherwise a $15 service charge will be applied.
If you need to piece the backing, use a 1/2 inch seam allowance and press open.
If quilt back is directional, please mark top of quilt back with a pin or note. Please note, it is very difficult to center backings. If you have a special design on the back, I would recommend making sure it is off center.
Please wash and iron your backing fabric if it is flannel or batik. Otherwise, please press the backing fabric really well.

Batting:
If you provide your own batting, please make sure it is a total of 8 inches longer and wider than the quilt top. Example: If your quilt top is 50 x 50 then make sure the batting is 58 x 58. If the batting is bigger than the 8 inches longer or wider, then it needs to be trimmed to the correct size, otherwise a $15 service charge will be applied.

Borders:
Please take care when attaching borders to your quilt top. Be sure to measure them carefully. If you have any questions about this, please give me a call at 425-483-9801.
