Preparing Your Quilt Top for Longarm Machine Quilting
The quilt top should be flat, pressed, and free of loose threads. All seams should be secure. Save three dimensional embellishments like buttons, charms, etc. for after the quilting is completed. Do not baste your quilt top, batting and backing together.
The backing and batting should be 4 inches larger than the quilt top on all sides. This is required for loading the quilt on the frame of the quilting machine.
If the backing is pieced, please use a 1/2" seam allowance and press it open. Please remove selvages from seams. When possible, run seam(s) horizontally. This allows smooth mounting of the backing on the quilt machine roller bars.
High quality Hobbs batting products are available for purchase. Please provide the quilting density recommendations for any batting you provide. Some very thin battings are not suitable for longarm quilting.
Superior So Fine thread is included in the price of quilting.
A work order will be filled out and approved by the client and quilter when a quilt is accepted for quilting. This work order will include all pertinent information, including measurements, price, estimated completion date, and the agreed upon quilting design and thread color. Both parties will have a copy of the work order.
Full payment is due when quilting is completed. No work will be released without full payment.
Cash, checks, and major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express) are accepted. Checks may be made out to Cathy Kirk, or Quilting Cowgirl.
