Quilt preparation

Do NOT baste your quilt top! Please do not apply embellishments until after your top is quilted.

Your quilt top and backing should be pressed, squared and free of loose threads. Stitching close to the edge all around the quilt top is strongly recommended to help keep seams secure during the quilting process. Be sure to clearly mark the top end of your quilt.

Batting and backing must be at least 4” larger than your quilt top on all sides. For example, if your quilt top is 40” x 50”, your batting and backing must be at least 48” x 58”. Backing seams should be without selvedges and pressed open. Karen can provide wide seamless backings and a range of batting options. Prices vary by materials and size.

If your top is not flat or has a wavy border these situations cannot be quilted out. Tucks and puckers may appear in the quilting despite best efforts. In some situations the borders may need to be reapplied before quilting can be done. Quilt preparation can be done for you, including reapplying borders, seam repair and squaring of top and/or back for a service fee of $20.00 per hour.
