Longarm Quilting Project Preparation


Before you mail your project to me, there are a couple of things you'll need to do:

  • Make sure your backing fabric is 4" wider on each side and 3" wider on the top and bottom. For instance, if your top is 80" x 80", your backing fabric needs to be at least 88" wide x 86" tall.

  • Clip loose threads from the back of the top of your pieced quilt top.

  • Press your quilt top and backing fabric. Pin a note to the top of your quilt. Is it directional? Is the backing fabric directional? PIN A NOTE IF IT IS!

  • Choose your pattern preferences and list them ranked on the order form. If you prefer, I can choose for you - write that down in the space listed.

  • Fill out the order form. Print the form and the liability release that is linked. ​You only need to fill out the liability release once, as it does not expire.  NO EXCEPTIONS: Your first quilt must be mailed in with completed forms. We can also do this if we meet in person.

  • Questions? Just contact me! Text 304-940-2088 for fast response times. Don't forget to let me know any special instructions or services you'd like for your quilt.
