Tips for great quilting –
Press your quilt top and backing thoroughly.
Place a safety pin at the top of both the quilt and backing fabric, if appropriate for a directional quilt backing
If you pre-wash your fabrics, pre-wash all of them.
Clip all loose threads from the back and front of the quilt top.
Square up your top and backing fabric.
Size your backing and batting a minimum of 4” larger than your quilt top on all four sides; i.e. a quilt top that is 54x76", the batting and backing at a minimum should be 62 x84".
Do not baste, pin, or tack your quilt together. Simply fold each piece or place on a hanger if you prefer.
Be sure to remove all selvages when seaming your backing.
Be aware that fullness and puckers, which have been pieced in, cannot be quilted out.
Avoid handling your quilt by the borders once they have been attached. This can stretch them and cause them to become loose and wavy.
Cut your straight borders from the length of the grain (parallel to the selvage). This direction will make them lay much flatter than those cut cross-grained.
