Quilt Top:

  • Careful pressing during quilt construction and a final pressing before machine quilting will help the quilt look its best.

  • Trim all loose threads from front and back of quilt.

  • Make sure quilt lays flat and square. A quilt with fullness in the body or borders may not result in a flat end product!


  • Backing must be at least 4 inches larger than the quilt top on all four sides.

    • Example: if your quilt top is 60x80, your backing must measure at least 68x88 inches.

  • Backing should be squared and pressed. If backing is pieced, make sure the selvedge is trimmed off from seamed areas before piecing. Piece the backing with a 1/2" seam. Press the seam open and flat.


  • Batting should be at least four inches larger than the quilt top on all four sides. (You do not need to trim the batting down if it is too large)

  • Batting should be a good quality product for optimum results. You may provide your own batting, or I carry Quilters Dream batting and Warm and Natural batting in my studio for your convenience.

At my studio you will be able to choose between one of my all over patterns, or a custom quilting option.
