Please follow these guidelines to ensure that your quilt is ready for longarming...
Your quilt backing must measure a minimum of 8 inches wider and 8 inches longer than your quilt top. This will ensure that there is enough extra fabric to load your quilt on the frame.
Check that your quilt is free of loose threads and press your top if necessary.
Remove all embellishments like buttons, crystals etc. from your quilt top unless you are requesting custom quilting.
If you choose to provide your own batting please ensure that is also 8 inches wider and 8 inches long than your quilt top. Should we feel that your batting is not appropriate for your quilt we will advise you. We have top quality Hobbs 80/20 batting in stock and available at a reasonable price.
