Preparing your Quilt
- Press your quilt top neatly and trim all loose threads, front and back.
- Piece the backing fabric, if needed, using 1/2 inch seams; pressed to one side.
- Be sure the backing is 10 inches larger than the quilt top in each direction.
(For example: if the top measures 90 X 100, the backing should measure 100 X 110.
- Mark the center of the top edge of the quilt and the backing with safety pins.
- The batting should also measure 10 inches larger than the top. You can provide your own batting or you can purchase it from our store. Annie's carries excellent quality quilt batting.
- Please layout and check your quilt for irregularities before we start. Annie's does not accept responsibility for problems that we encounter that are due to irregularities in the quilt top. Problems like rippling borders or loose or missing seams can cause a problem with the long arm. They create snags that catch on the equipment. We promise to do the best that we can on every quilt, but please try to anticipate and correct these issues before we start.
If you choose to ship your quilt to us, shipping is your responsibility. We recommend that you insure it. We will add insurance when we return it.
Payment for Long Arm Quilting is due when the quilt is complete. Please pick up your quilt as soon as possible after completion. Quilts left for more than 30 days after completion will be donated to a local charity unless other arrangements are made.
