We know that our customers put in a lot of time, money and energy into making their quilt tops and we want to compliment those efforts with excellent machine quilting.

- Edge to Edge quilting on all tops at .02 cents per inch
- Two week turn-around
- If you buy your backing and batting from us, we will piece or trim your backing for free!
To get your quilt ready for longarm quilting, you need to do the following:
- Press all seams flat from the back of the quilt
- Check for weak seams and secure if necessary.
- Remove any loose threads from the front and back of quilt top and clip thread tails.
- Backing and batting need to be at least 8" longer and wider than the quilt top, (4" on all four sides).
- Do not baste or pin the layers together as they are mounted on the machine separately.
- Remove the selvadges from the backing.
- Make sure the backing is square and press it. If the backing needs to be pieced, sew the pieces together using a 1/2" seam allowance and press open (or we will do this for you, for free, if you have purchased your backing and batting from QuiltWorks).
- Make sure the quilt is square. One way to prevent wavy borders and having tucks occur during quilting is to attach the borders using the following method: Take the average measurement of the quilt top on both edges and down the center. This will be the length you will cut the border. Mark the centers of the border and the quilt and pin together, easing in or out the difference. Do the same for the other borders.
- Use a note to mark the top of the quilt and/or backing if you have a directional preference.
- When working with bias edges or seams on the outside of your quilt, you will want to sew a 1/8" staystitch on all sides of your quilt top to prevent stretching and the seams from popping open. This is a good habit to develop.
We all know that quilting can hide many imperfections; however, we cannot guarantee that any fullness in your top will be quilted out. We will do our very best to blend imperfections as much as possible and provide you with a beautiful quilt that you will treasure. Two Week Turnaround!
