Policies for the Studio

Press your quilt top taking special care to press seams flat.

Trim all loose threads and thread tails.

Sew a running stitch around the outside edge of your quilt top, especially important if you have no borders.  (This helps hold edge seams together while the top is being handled and pinned to the quilting frame.)

Quilt backs and batting need to be at least 4 inches larger on all sides than the quilt top.  If your top is 45 X 65, your backing and batting need to measure at least 53 X 73.

Trim selvages from backing fabric before piecing together.  Selvages on the outside edges are okay.

Press backing seams open.

Flannel backing should have a running stitch around the edges to minimize stretching.

No sheets for backing!!!  Sheets have a much higher thread count than quilter’s cotton and are very difficult to quilt.

If you are using your own batting, please bring it in the package.  Knowing the fiber content and manufacturer will assist me in knowing how it will quilt.

Please remember a deposit is required at the time of drop off.  No work will be preformed on your pieces until the deposit is made.

Please be sure pet hair is removed from your fabric.

No t-shirt quilts accepted.
