Tips for Preparing Your Quilt Top for Long Arm Quilting

  • Trim the loose threads on the back of the quilt. This is very important if you have a light background with dark piecing. The threads will show through after stitched.
  • Press the quilt top if you have NOT pressed as you pieced. Press bulky seams open.
  • Press the quilt back, seam to one side. The quilt back should be 8 inches longer and wider than the quilt top. Example, quilt top is 80x90; the back should be AT LEAST 88x98.
  • Do NOT baste or attempt to sandwich the quilt top, batting, and backing.
  • Batting should also be at least 8 inches longer and wider than the quilt top.
