Drop Off Instructions

Available by appointment Monday through Saturday. Closed Sundays.

  • Download and print the Quilting Form and complete prior to drop off.  (No printer?  No worries...just let me know prior to coming.)  If you require a consultation, call prior to your appointment 2O6-786-II23.  
  • Quilt Backing and Batting must be larger than the quilt top.  Add an additional 4" to each of the 4 sides of back and batting.
    (i.e. If your quilt top is 60" x 80", your backing & batting should be 68" x 88")
  • Mark the top orientation of both the quilt top and quilt back with a pin or note.
  • If you have a full stamp card, it should be submitted with the form at drop off.
  • Call, text 2O6-786-ll23 or email [email protected] to schedule an appointment.

Backing

Backing and Batting should be as even and straight as possible.

Backs with Borders or Pieced Backs (as well as some plaids and strips) cannot be matched up to the quilt top.  If possible, avoid these.  They may not stay completely straight and square on the back.  I  do my best to keep these backs on track and straight, but it is tricky when it's on the back, and not recommended.

Borders and pieced Quilt Backs cannot be centered or matched to the quilt top.  Avoid these if possible.

Minky or store-bought blanket or sheet - Static in minky or store-bought blankets should be removed (this can affect the computerized longarm machine).  Store-bought blanket or sheet needs to have the hem removed on all sides.  Sheets are very tight woven and will have occasional skipped stitches.

Backing & Batting must be larger than the Quilt Top.  

Add 4 inches to each of the 4 sides of both Backing and Batting.

Example:  Quilt Top 50" wide x 60" long

                 Quilt Back & Batting should measure 58" wide x 68" long


If packaged batting is significantly larger than the quilt top, it will be trimmed at the time of quilting and all pieces will be returned with the quilt. *


Batting - you may bring your own or you can check my pricing here.

*NOTE: PELLON packaged batting has been 2" to 4" smaller than the noted size on the printed package. If you have already purchased and will be submitting at drop off, please open the package and double-check the dimensions prior to your appointment.

Tips for the

best results

Pet hair and Strong pet odors should be removed prior to drop off.  Gently hand wash if pet odor is strong.  Thank you :-)

No vulgar words or pictures on quilt pieces will be accepted.

Spray starch or sizing gives incredible results!  It helps control fabric while cutting, sewing and pressing.  If the quilt top has wavy borders, uneven blocks or cuts are on the bias, starch or sizing prior to cutting and sewing can help with these issues.

Although starch will aid in making a quilt remain square and borders remain flat and straight, if the outside edges do not hang completely straight prior to quilting, it is likely that there is fullness.  In these cases, easement or a slight tuck will need to be taken in.  I do my best to make this work "invisible".

Cut off the salvage edges when piecing the Quilt Back.  Salvage edges have a tighter weave and can feed unevenly on the quilting frame.  Finished results are better with these removed.

Tame Stray Threads that occur during piecing by using a pinking rotary blade.  (Thank you, Colleen, for that tip!)  Starch may also help.  This is not required, but your finished results will be better if you take the time to tame.
