Get Set: Checklist for preparing your quilt for the long arm quilter:
Top and backing have all loose threads, pet hairs, etc., removed, and are clean and pressed with seams going to one side (not pressed open). Seams in the backing should be 1/2" wide, with selvages removed.
Top and backing are accurately squared with a 90 degree angle at each corner. You might need to lay this out on a large table and measure with a long straight edge. Think of a picture frame, the opposite sides are the same measurement.
Backing and batting at least 8" wider and longer than the quilt top.
Top edges of backing and top are marked with a note and pinned in place.
If the backing is pieced, please have the seam(s) run parallel to the top and bottom of the quilt. If your yardage is directional and the seam needs to run vertically, we may be able to load your quilt sideways on the quilt table, depending on the design you choose.
Include a note with any additional instructions, and feel free to ask the quilter to call you before starting the project, to discuss further.
The quilter will call you with any additional questions or concerns, if necessary.
