Forget-Me-Not Quilting will treat your quilt as our own, exercising high standards of care and service. We want you to be happy with your quilting design. Please go through the checklist to be sure you have done everything necessary to enable me to do the best job possible with your quilt. Please understand that machine quilting will not “fix” fullness, puckering, poor sewing, inadequate seam allowance, improperly measured borders, or the squareness of the quilt.
1. In order to properly load your quilt onto the long arm quilting machine, your backing must be a minimum of 4” larger on ALL sides than the pieced quilt top. (That’s 8” longer than the total length, and 8” wider than the total width.) Maximum width for my machine is 124”. (At this time, I accept only cotton fabric for quilting. Additionally, we cannot accept denim, minky, flannel, cuddle, or fleece fabrics. Thank you for understanding.)
2. All threads must be trimmed.
3. Quilt top and backing must be flat and well pressed. At this time, we cannot accept quilt tops with embroidery, embellishments, loose fabric, or other obstacles to the continuous sewing. Appliqued designs will be stitched over just as the rest of the quilt.
4. If the quilt top or backing is directional, please indicate with a pinned note. While we will make every attempt to center the backing, we cannot guarantee that it will be perfectly centered.
