Preparing your Quilt:
Your backing & batting need to be at least 3 inches bigger than your quilt top on all sides.
I use the same color thread on the top & in the bobbin. Keep this in mind when choosing your backing.
Press and neatly fold your quilt top and backing fabric. The backing should be pieced (if necessary) and squared up. Please press the backing seam open to reduce bulk.
Borders that do not lay flat may cause tucks or pleats in the final quilt.
Trim any loose threads on your quilt top. Unclipped dark threads can show through underneath light fabrics.
Identify the top of your quilt & the top of your backing with safety pins.
I buy batting by the roll and will sell it to you by the yard. If you would prefer to provide your own batting, I am happy to use most any product you bring along with your quilt. Just remember that in most cases, you get what you pay for, and you worked hard to make the perfect quilt top and purchasing batting is not the time to pinch pennies.
