Longarm Quilting

Preparing Your Quilt Top, Wadding & Backing

 You'll be glad to hear that very little preparation is required to submit your quilt top for longarm quilting. Simply follow these basic guidelines:

  • Your top, wadding and backing should be submitted as separate pieces, no pre-layering or basting is required.
  • Ensure your wadding and backing are at least 8 inches wider and longer than your top. For instance, if your top measures 40 x 60 inches, your wadding and backing need to be at least 48 x 68 inches.
  • If you have a thread colour and quilting pattern in mind please let us know, otherwise we are happy to recommend several thread choices and patterns to suit your top.
  • The largest size we can accommodate is 95 inches on the shortest side. That means that the other side can be as long as you want, but the shortest side can be no more than 95 inches.
