Quilting Preparation
At Morning Star Quilting Studio, we are here to help. The following information should give you some simple guidelines, but it will not take the place of a phone call! 

• Square your quilt with correct boarder techniques.

• If the outside edge of your quilt top has bias edges or multiple seams, stay stitch 1/4" from the edge of the entire quilt to 
      prevent stretching.

• If the backing needs to be seamed, use a 1/2" seam and press open. 

• Use a good quality batting if you provide your own. The studio has Hobbs 80/20 available for a nominal charge.

• Batting & Backing 8" larger than quilt top in both directions.

• Clean the back of your quilt top, so trailing darker threads do not show thru lighter fabric.

• Label the top edge of your quilt top and backing.

• Do not pin or baste your layers together.

• Press and deliver top and backing on hangers to prevent wrinkling & additional pressing charges.
