Longarm Quilting Services We have a selection of quilting patterns and designs, including blocks, borders, sashing and Edge-to-Edge designs. We will work with you to help you choose the designs and quilting thread that will turn your quilt top into a treasured quilt. Quilt Preparation • Choose high quality, 100% cotton fabric. Polyester blends can cause slipped or skipped stitches. • Choose a print cotton fabric for the backing that will blend with the top thread color. A different color thread for the bobbin will usually show on the top, creating unsatisfactory results. • Backing fabric must be at least four inches larger on all sides (total 8” wider and 8” longer) than the pieced top. For Queen/king size and larger, add a couple extra inches. If your pieced backing is larger than needed, do not trim it down; however, please be sure that the ends are straight. • The quilt top must lay flat. Measure your quilt top across the top, bottom, and at the center. These three measurements should be the same. If not there may be puckers in your finished quilt. • Check to be sure all seams are secure. You should stay stitch around your entire quilt to ensure that seams do not pull apart. • Remove selvages from backing seams. Press backing seams closed and to one side. Clip all stray threads from pieced top and back. Stray threads will show through (shadow), especially on light backgrounds. • Use one safety pin to mark the top of the quilt. Remove all other pins and threads, as well as buttons and other embellishments. • Quilt must be clean and free of any odors. • Quilt top and backing fabric must be completely pressed. All seams should be pressed flat. Ensure that all seams are fully sewn. An open seam could catch the foot of the machine and cause disastrous results. • Quilt top should be trimmed down to final finished size. We will not cut or trim a quilt top. • We reserve the right to refuse unfamiliar backing fabrics such as sheets or decorator fabrics. • If you pre-washed the fabrics in your quilt top, it is highly recommended that you pre-wash your backing fabric also. • Quilt top and backing must be brought in as separate layers, pressed and neatly folded on a hanger. • We will only use our batting and it is included in the per square inch price. These guidelines are to ensure that we provide you the best possible finished product.
