order to obtain the highest quality and satisfaction in
the finished product, please consider the following:
must be a minimum of 8" longer and 6"
wider than quilt top.
I can accomodate quilt backings up to 102"
you provide the batting, it needs to be the same
width as the backing.
sure the top and backing are well pressed, flat,
and have been squared off.
if a seam on the backing is necessary, it will be
across the width, horizontal. Seam should be ½"
and pressed open on the backing. Selvage removed.
choosing a backing fabric, keep in mind the thread
color that you are going to want for the top. Light
colored thread on a dark back or dark colored thread
on a light back will create a major contrast.
in the borders will not "quilt out" so be sure to
measure the borders carefully before sewing them
onto your quilt. To ensure your borders are applied
the full length of your quilt in 3 places: left side,
center and right side. Add those measurements and
divide by 3 to get an average. For example 61"+62"+60"=
183". Divide by 3 equals an average of 61".
the two side borders to this length measurement,
in this case 61". Pin border to quilt, first
in the center and then each end. Ease to fit,
if necessary and pin to distribute fabric. Sew
and press the seam towards the border.
this process widthwise for top and bottom borders,
and remember to include the borders in the width

"stay-stitch" the outside border edge of the whole
quilt. This prevents fabric stretching from any
threads from the back of quilt top.
no sheets for backing fabric
effort will be made to get your quilt done in a
