Preparing your quilt for machine quilting
To ensure the best results are achieved from long-arm machine quilting, it is important to prepare your quilt top and backing carefully. If you do not wish to prepare your back or top I am happy to do this for you. A fee (outlined in Pricing) is charged for this service.
Below is a list of recommendations.
A couple of things to think about
Do you have any ideas for your quilting design, for example, from your books or magazines. If so, bring them along to your consultation and we will discuss your ideas. I have lots of books and magazines that you can look through and am happy to make recommendations about quilting designs. It is important that the quilting design enhance your quilt.
What effect do you want to achieve with your backing.
If you choose a plain backing, the quilting will be more visible than if you choose a patterned backing. This is great for an all over edge to edge design. The pattern will be highly visible on the reverse.
A patterned backing makes joins and thread colour changes less visible. This is great for custom quilting.
