Quilt Preparation

Please follow these instructions to insure that your quilt is ready for quilting:

Quilt Top:

• Trim All Threads
• Secure All Edges and Seams
• Iron Well, Pressing All Seams
• Borders Should Be Flat
• Square the Top
• Identify the Head or Top of the Quilt
• Do Not Pin or Baste the Quilt Layers


Backing Fabric:

Backing should be 6" larger on all sides of the quilt top. This allows for pinning to machine as well as for shrinkage that occurs during quilting. To prepare:

• Cut off Selvages from Backing Fabric and Press the Seams Open
• Identify Seam Direction Desired
• Iron Well
• Square the Backing
• Trim Any Loose Threads

Standard or older mattresses average 9 - 12" and newer pillow-top mattresses are 14 - 16" deep.
