Preparing Your Quilt Top

01
  • Pre-wash fabric.

  • Square up top.

  • Trim away loose threads.

  • Press the top as flat as possible.

  • Work out any wavy borders.

Preparing Your Quilt Backing

02
  • Add a minimum of 4-5" larger than your measured quilt top on EACH side.

  • If pieced, please sew a larger than normal seam allowance (at least a 1/2") and press the seam open. (cut off selvages).

  • Square up the backing.

Preparing Your Quilt Batting

  • If providing your own batting, please make sure it is at least 3-4" larger than your measured quilt top on EACH side.
