10 Tips for Preparing Your Quilt
- Press all your seams flat to avoid lumps or puckers.
- Top and backing should have straight top and sides and be squared up.
- Please ensure your top is squared up and that your backing has also been squared (an easy way to square up your backing is to snip and tear your backing fabric as this ensures the fabric is on the straight grain).
- Backing and wadding needs to be 4 inches wider than the top of the quilt on all four sides.
- If joining backing fabric, we prefer the seams to run horizontally (across the quilt).
- If your backing is not large enough and you need to add extra fabric, we suggest that adding a piece through the middle will yield a better result as we cannot guarantee that borders on the outside will be perfectly centred.
- Seams - please make sure your outside seams are secure as these can come undone when the quilt is being racked up.
- Loose threads - ensure all loose threads have been clipped from the front and back. Dark threads can show through the fabric if it is a light fabric, once machine quilted there is no way to remove any unwanted threads inside the quilt.
- Basting or pinning - You do not need to baste or pin the quilt as we require the 3 layers to be separate before putting it on the machine.
- Please do not bring in a quilt that has 3D motifs or buttons etc. as the machine cannot go around these.
Please Note: This is an edge to edge service, our service does not include going around motifs, or icons and does not include any ditch stitching.
