TO PREPARE YOUR QUILT
Please provide a nicely pressed, squared up backing that is at least 8 inches bigger than the top.
Be sure all loose threads are trimmed from the top and the top is nicely pressed as well.
When attaching borders to your quilt, avoid just sewing your long strips on and trimming off the extra.
This causes fullness in your borders and may lead to puckering as the top is quilted.
Instead, measure through the center of your quilt and CUT your borders that exact length.
Mark the quarter measurements on both the quilt and the border and attach it evenly.

Avoid adding extra bling to your quilt until it has been quilted. This includes buttons, beads, crystals, etc.
