Tips for preparing your top and backing for Long Arm Quilting
Press the quilt top so seams lay as flat as possible. This helps insure the best possible result for your quilt.
Square up your quilt. Make sure the top width is equal to the bottom width and the right side is equal to the left side. Measure the horizontal and vertical across the middle of your quilt, it should also measure the same as the length and width of the sides.
If your backing is pieced, make sure the grain of the fabric is running the same direction with all the pieces.
Your batting and backing should be at least 4-6 inches larger than your top on all sides. Therefore the total size of the back and batting should be at least 8 inches wider and longer than the top. This is necessary for loading your quilt on the longarm machine. As the quilt is rolled up on the roller more backing is necessary to ensure that there is enough at the bottom of the quilt.
Square up the backing. Please trim all sides of the backing so it is square. Make sure the top width is equal to the bottom width and the right side is equal to the left side.
