How to prepare your quilt top and back
I piece my own quilts so I know you've spent many long hours choosing patterns,colors and fabrics, painstakingly cutting, piecing and assembling your quilt. It is as important to me as it is to you to have a great finished product. These few extra steps will assure the best possible outcome for your quilt. 


1. Be sure to press all seams .
2. Trim loose threads, check for any open seams.
4. Indicate top of quilt with a note and safety pin
5. Include quilt top and backing measurements on the note
6. Square up top and back the best you can.
7. Backing must be at least 4-6 inches longer on ALL sides of quilt top
8. If you provide your own batting, it should be at least 4 inches wider on all sides of
    the quilt, but not wider than the back.


Some other things to think about: 
  • ​   When selecting a thread color, consider how much contrast you want in the quilting          
  •    Consider your thread choice when selecting a backing fabric.
  •    Embellishments should be added after quilting.
  •    I will trim your quilt leaving 1/2 inch for binding (unless otherwise specified.)


If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to send me an email.
