Q1: What must I do to prepare my top piece for quilting?


  Step 1:  
 Iron your quilt top from top to bottom, making sure:
    — All seams are pressed
    — and your quilt is wrinkle free

  Step 2:  
 Clearly mark the top of your quilt

  Step 3:  
 Make sure your quilt is as SQUARE as possible
    — Ensure you don't have flared borders

  Step 4:  
Cut all loose threads
    — Ensure all seams are securely stitched and tied off

  Step 5:  
Please DO NOT pin or baste your quilt top and remember to remove all pins, buttons, or other 'objects' which may damage the needle.
These items may be reattached after your quilt is returned.

  Step 6:  
  Backing:
      — Make sure your backing is square
      — Ensure your backing is 4 inches wider than the quilt on ALL FOUR SIDES.

(For example, a Queen size quilt measuring 90" x108" requires a backing that's 98" x 116". Simply add 8 inches (4 x 2) to both the length and the width)
