Shipping


  • I suggest using a shipping carrier that can track your package, such as USPS or UPS. 
  • Wrapping each item in plastic sealable bag to ensure that your fabric is not damaged by any moisture during shipment. 
  • Add a piece of paper with your name/address inside each wrapped bag.

General


  • The three layers of your quilt will be loaded independently of one another. Please do not pin or baste them together.

  • All of us have different skill levels. If you have any questions or need more details about what's on this page please reach out to me so any questions are answered.

Tips for Preparing your quilt top, quilt back & batting


Quilt Back


  • Please make backs 8" longer and wider than quilt top. 
  • Remove any selvages.
  • Please indicate the top of your quilt back. Pinning a piece of paper that says 'TOP/Backing' works great. 
  • Please do not use bed sheets as your quilt back.

Batting


  • I do offer batting for my clients for details 'Other Quilt Services Page'. 
  • Please cut 6" longer and wider than quilt top.
  • Batting should be appropriate for Longarm quilting. I recommend: Quilters Dream Puff & Quilters Dream Blend 70/30. 
  • Batting like all quilting is a personal preference.
