Preparing Your Quilt Top
  1. Make sure your seams are secure and have been pressed down. Pay extra attention to bulky seams and try to get them as flat as possible.
  2. If the quilt top and backing have a designated top and bottom, please mark them accordingly.
  3. Clip any dark threads on the back of the quilt top that could show up through a light background.
  4. Check your quilt top for any foreign objects – like sewing pins that have been left behind. The longarm doesn’t like those at all.
Preparing Your Batting & Backing
  1. Your quilt back will need to be 4″ larger than your quilt top on all four sides. Get as close to 4 inches as possible. Bigger is not better in this case, as we prefer not to load a king size backing for a throw size quilt. (Example:  If your quilt top is 60 x 70, your batting and backing should measure 68 x 78)
  2. If you are using prepackaged batting, please cut it down to the same size as your backing. If we need to do it, there is a $10 fee.
  3. Please trim up your quilt back so that it is square and has even edges. This has to be done before it is loaded onto the machine. If we need to do it, there is a $10 fee.
