Squaring

It is very important that your quilt backing is "Squared". This means that the opposing sides are parallel and that the corners form a 90 degree angle. If it is not square it will be difficult to mount your quilt on the long-arm quilting machine with even tension across the quilt. This may cause puckers and folds.

Start by measuring the length of the quilt along each side and in the middle. Try not to stretch the quilt while doing this. The measurements should be the same.

 

 

 

 

 


Next measure the width across the quilt at the top, bottom and the middle. These three measurements should be the same.


 

 

 

 

 

Last, measure the across the quilt from corner to corner. Again these two measurements should be the same.

 

 

 

 

 

 



The quilt backing needs to be 6 inches wider on each side and 6 inches longer on the top and the bottom (Total of 12 inches longer and 12 inches wider) than the quilt top to so that we can mount your quilt properly. The batting also needs to be a total 12 inches longer and 12 inches wider than the quilt top as well.

If Country Boy Quilting has to correct any sewing or preparation faults we must charge for the time involved at the rate of $25/hour. You will be notified prior to any work of this nature.
