Quilt Preparation Checklist:
We will treat your quilt as our own, exercising our high standard of care and service. We want you to be
happy with your quilting design. Please go through the checklist to be sure you have done everything
necessary to enable us to the best job possible with your quilt.
Occasionally we all have seams coming loose, wavy borders, or puckers. We would love to say these
things are okay, but they will cause issues when quilting your quilt. We wish we had a magic wand to
“quilt it out” but we just can’t. We will do our best to make sure these things are not noticeable, but
depending on the situation, it still may be noticeable.
Quilt Top Preparation
• Quilt tops should lay flat and be square to avoid puckering when quilted. Excess fabric in borders
could result in puckering.
• Edge seams should be secured
• Remove all excess threads and pin your name and phone number to your quilt top and backing.
Also, mark the top your quilt top if it is not easily noticeable if you have a preference.
• Press quilt top seems should lay flat (press to one side). This is important and can make a big
difference in the final look of the quilt. Iron from the finished side (the front), and use starch, it will be especially appreciated. (**Use this step to double check your seams for “holes” in your
quilt top as well as any wavy borders.)
Quilt Back Preparation
• To properly load your quilt onto our long arm quilting machines, your backing must be a
minimum of 6 inches longer on all four sides than the pieced top (3 inches bigger all the way
around_ This extra fabric is a must to be able to attach the quilt to the bars of the frame
• If you piece your backing, make sure to trim the selvages off as they shrink unevenly when you
wash the quilt and create a puckered line. Use a half inch seam allowance and press the seam
open. You can do this by folding it in quarters and using your rotary cutter and ruler to trim it
• If you choose a directional fabric for your backing, consider that when piecing your fabric.
Please mark the top the backing fabric.
HOW TO GET A ROUGH ESTIMATE OF THE COST FOR QUILTING
1. Determine the overall square inches in your quilt by measuring the width and length of the quilt
and multiply these two measurements. EXAMPLE: A quilt measures 60”x72” = 4,320 inches
2. Then multiply this total square inch by the amount of $.02. For example, 4320 x .02= $86.40 for
the edge-to-edge quilting service.
3. To calculate binding cost, find the linear measurements by adding all four sides together. For
example, a quilt that measures 60” x 72” would be 60+60+72+72=264 linear inches.
