prepping your quilt

wondering how best to prep your quilt top? here are some of my recommendations

Beach Waves
Beautiful Ocean
Sandy Beach

stay stitch

square it up

trim those threads

if your quilt top does not have a border, sew a stay stitch all the way around the edges of your quilt top. all too often i see seams coming apart, especially along the edges. 

square up your quilt top AND backing. the quilt top must lay flat. measure quilt top across the top, bottom, and at the center. these measurements should be the same. if not, you may end up with puckers and an un-square finished quilt.

trim off any loose threads from the back side of your quilt top! the biggest culprit is when dark fabrics are adjacent light fabrics and they start to fray. let me assure you that you will see those underneath the light colored fabric.

final preparations

• make sure your backing and batting (if you're sending your own) are at least 4” bigger on all four sides of your quilt.

• if you prewash your quilt top it is highly recommended that you also prewash your backing fabric.

please iron both your quilt top and your quilt backing.

• if your quilt top or backing is directional, please pin a note to the top.

• when you ship your quilt, please place it in a bag inside the box to protect it if the box gets wet.
