Steel Needle Stitchery
Machine Quilting Service


Before dropping your quilt please prepare it so I will have an enjoyable time quilting it and you can receive​​ an heirloom to be passed on.

1. Make sure the backing is at least 6 to 8 inches horizontally and vertically larger than top.
2. Make sure tops and backings are squared up prior to drop off and borders do not ruffle.
3. Trim all loose threads and press your quilt top so seams lay flat. Uncut threads and bulky seams will cause needles to break and throw off tension.
4. Quilts that are beautifully ironed have a better finished appearance.
5. During the quilting process quilts tend to shrink. This is more prevalent in more densely quilted designs and lofty batting. Quilt tops are machine basted to minimize shrinkage and insure straightness.
6. Quilts are loaded with the backing seams laying horizontally (side to side). Please specify top and bottom of quilt and if you want the top centered on the backing seam.
