Press your quilt
top and backing well.
Clip any stray
threads from the back of the quilt top to reduce the chance of
their showing through on the front.
Be sure there is
no extra fullness in the borders or the edges of the quilt. To
prevent fullness in borders, measure the width or the length in
the center of the quilt, not on the edges. Cut the borders to
these measurements. Pin evenly to the edge of the quilt and
ease any fullness. Sew with the quilt top on the bottom, or use
a walking foot.
Don’t baste or
pin the quilt layers together. This will have to be removed
before loading the quilt onto the machine.
batting must be at least 3 inches longer and 3 inches wider
that the quilt top ON ALL SIDES (total of 6 inches).
Be sure to square
and trim evenly both the quilt top and backing to insure a
square and flat quilt.
If the quilt
and/or backing are directional, please place a safety pin at
the top of each.
carefully fold all layers, seal in a plastic bag in case the
package gets wet, and pack in a sturdy shipping box.
