Quilt Preparation for Long Arm Services

The backing must be 5" to 7" larger than the quilt top on all 4 sides. This means it should be 10" to 14" larger than the top.

For example: If your quilt top measures 90" x 90" the backing should measure at least 100" x 100". If you are providing the batting, it also must be 6" to 8" larger than the quilt top. We recommend higher-quality batting. Some are made with uneven density or are too fragile and may shred in handling. Others may beard and spoil your quilt. We do have batting for purchase.

Your quilt top and bottom should be separate. Please DO NOT pin or baste layers together. If you provide your own batting, that must
be separate also.

Quilt top and bottom must be squared, pressed and all threads cut.

Stay stitch 1/8" to 1/4" around the edge of your quilt to help prevent seams from coming unstitched during the quilting process.

Please ensure that your piecing and borders lie flat. Longarm quilting will not "fix" misaligned patchwork or the uneven borders that can cause your quilt to have puckers or tucks when quilted. Your quilt will be as free of pleats, fullness, or tucks as your piecing allows.

If the direction of your backing is important, mark the top of quilt with a safety pin. Do the same with your backing if it is a directional fabric.
