Preparing Your Quilt For Longarm Quilting Services

1

Press all seams flat.
2Remove loose threads on both the front and back of the quilt.
3Backing and batting need to be at least 5 incles longer and wider than the quilt top on each edge. Don't baste or pin the layers together.

Basting: 
For hand quilters and/or home machine quilters, the basting is
done in rows and
columns for the entire length and width of the quilt in 3
to 4 inch blocks. Large
stitches make it easy to remove once your hand
stitching is completed.

 

4If the backing needs to be pieced, sew the pieces together with a 1/2 inch seam and press open. Remove all selvages and square up.

 

Selvage: 
The lengthwise finished edge of a piece of fabric that is usually tightly woven.
The selvage shrinks at a different rate than the rest of the fabric, and is hard
to needle. As a result, it is usually cut off before measuring and sewing fabric
pieces together.

5Make sure the backing is square.
6Use a safety pin to mark the top of the quilt and the top of the backing if you have a preference.
