Send your quilt top pieced and ready for quilting. You will need to
cut the quilt backing and batting at least 4" longer and 4"
wider than the size of your quilt top. Indicate the top of the quilt
front and the top of the backing with safety pins.
Do not baste or pin the quilt top and backing together. Press your
quilt top and backing material. Horizontal seams on backing allows for
the best tensioning on the quilt. Please remove all selvages before
piecing the backing.
Trim and remove all loose threads from the top, front and back of the
quilt top as well as the backing. If there are light areas on your top,
dark threads can really detract from the finished product.
Your quilt is measured both through the middle and along the edges.
Any difference in the measurements will alert me to the possibility of
"ruffled" edges. We will discuss options available to deal
with this. To determine square yardage, measure (in inches) the length
and width of the quilt top. Multiply the two numbers together and divide
Example 65" wide X 78" long = 5070 sq. inches 5070 /
1296 = 3.91 square yards
