For many of us, quilting is a lifeline. Each stitch ties us to other lives and brings a closeness to
those we love – sometimes even to those we don’t know, but still care about. May your own
quilting bring you joy and comfort throughout your life.
We at Just for Fun! Quilting pride ourselves in getting your quilt back to you within two weeks!
Pressing your quilt is very important. If your seams are not laying down, it can cause the hopping foot to push the fabric and create uneven quilting.Loose Threads:
Clip loose threads and check for loose seams. They can be caught on the machine while quilting.Edges:
If your outer edge has a lot of small pieces you can run a straight or a zigzag stitch on the outer edge. It helps to keep them from stretching.Adding Extra:
Be sure to add 8″ to both the width and length of your back and batting. This gives us room to mount your quilt and an area for the clamps to hold up the edges.Selvages:
Using the selvage edge in your quilt back or top will cause a tightness that has no give. Always avoid using the selvage.Each piece:
We need top, batting and backing separate for mounting onto the machines – basting is NOT necessary and must be removed before quilting.
