Preparing your quilt for longarm quilting

How you prepare your quilt top and backing can make a huge difference on how your quilt will lay. You must square your top and backing on all four sides if you want a flat square quilt.

Top
  • Iron your quilt top with seams pressed open or to one side.
  • Trim all thread, front and back.
  • Square up your quilt top.

Backing
  • Piece your backing making sure that it is 3-4 inches larger than your quilt top on ALL sides, I can piece it for you for an extra cost, if so make sure you send enough yardage. If you need help with this please contact me.
  • Trim thread, front and back
  • Iron seams either to the side or open.
  • Square up you backing.
