Quilt Preparation
Preparing your quilt for quilting:
 
  • Backing should be 6” larger than your quilt top on all four sides (ex. if your quilt is 60” X 80”, we need your backing to be 72” x 92”) 
  • All layers should be separate (quilt top, batting, and backing) - they have to be loaded individually, so please don’t baste
  • Quilt top & backing should be pressed well so seams are nice & flat
  • Please trim the extra threads away from the back of your quilt - especially dark threads behind light fabrics
  • If your quilt has borders, measure through the center of your quilt, then cut borders to that exact measurement. (If you haven’t done it that way before, click here for a great tutorial!) If borders are sewn on and then trimmed to fit, they won’t lay flat on the longarm, and this can result in puckering and pleats. 
  • We offer several different types of Hobbs batting options, or you’re welcome to send your own. Just make sure it’s a good, quilt shop quality batting - feel free to check with us prior to sending if you’re unsure. Click the title to learn more about each of the battings we carry.
