Quilt Top Preparation:
Make sure your quilt top has been pressed and all threads cleaned up. Loose dark threads left on the back of the light colored patches can really distract from the quilt as they can be caught between the layers.
If there is a difference between the top and the bottom of your quilt, mark the top of your quilt top with a safety pin.
Please be sure all seams are secure.
It is important that your quilt top is square. If there is a problem with the squareness of the top, there also can be a problem with how the quilting design lays on the quilt.
If there is any fullness in your quilt or ruffles in your borders, I will do my best when quilting to try to ease in the fullness. But quilt tops with these problems may have tucks and pleats after the quilting is complete.
Backings and battings need to be 6-8 inches larger on the length and width of the quilt top. For example if you have a 60" x 60" quilt, your backing should be at least 66 x 66. This will supply the needed 6 inches on all sides of the quilt.
We carry an assortment of battings: Quilters Dream Cotton, Poly, Wool, Silk, Puff, Dream Green, and Warm & Natural. We give you a 20 % discount on batting if we supply it.
We carry an assortment of threads a Superior King Tut variegated and solids. Sulky, YLI, Glide, Wonderfil threads for you to choose from.
