  • Preparing the Quilt for Finishing

    • If you have bias edges in your border, I recommend you machine baste 1/8 inch from the edge of your quilt to help stop stretch while quilting.

    • Do not attach any buttons, beads, plastic or metal pieces.

    • Do not leave any pins in your top or bottom.

    • Iron your top and back and make sure seams are pressed open or to one side. This is an important step in the process of turning out a flat quilt, so take your time. It is really, really important to have your quilt top seams ironed flat. I can show you an example if necessary.
  • The Back

    • All sides of top and back must have a straight edge and be as near square as possible.

    • For machine quilting, the back must be 4" longer and 4" wider than the top.

    • This is added insurance for stretchy fabrics or those that aren’t quite square, as well as for fitting the quilt into the machine rollers. Do not count this material as part of your finished quilt.

    • I center your top to the back width-wise and pin the top edge of your top 1 to 2 inches from the top of your back.

    • If you put a border on the back it will not be centered in one direction.

    • Do not baste layers; send two separate pieces.
