Quilt Preparation



  • Batting & Backing must be at least 4” larger than the quilt top on all sides. For example: if your quilt top is 50” x 50” then the backing fabric should measure 58” x 58”.
  • Please remove selvedge edges if the backing fabric is pieced together.
  • Do not send bed sheets to be used for the backing.


  • If your quilt has a pieced border or any bias edges, it is recommended that you stay stitch 1/8” around the entire perimeter of the quilt top for stability and to avoid distortion. The stitches will not be visible once the binding is on.


  • Please remove all pins, buttons, charms and any other embellishments from your quilt top.
  • Trim all loose threads on the top and underside of your quilt top. This will ensure that the threads will not show through in the lighter areas.
  • Please ensure your quilt top and backing is well pressed and wrinkle free prior to drop off. It will be quilted in the condition it is received unless otherwise arranged in which case a pressing fee will apply.
  • If the quilt top or backing is directional, please identify with masking tape or by pinning a note to the top.
  • If your quilt top has a flange, please baste it down prior to quilting to ensure the folds do not flip under the machine needle.
  • Glass Thimble Quiltery reserves the right to refuse to quilt any project that does not meet the acceptable standards listed above.
