Comfor & Joy Quilting wants to help you prepare your quilt for the greatest quilting success possible.
Here are a few helpful hints:

  • Press all seams.

  • Trim all threads.

  • Do not baste your quilt top, batting, and backing together.

  • Stay stitch any pieced borders and edges.

  • Please mark the “head” of the quilt top with a safety pin or masking tape. Also mark the quilt backing
    if you have a preference on which end is up.

  • Backing and batting should be a minimum of 4 inches larger than the quilt on all sides for best results.
    This is necessary for pinning and clamping onto the machine.

  • If you plan on having scalloped quilt edges, please do not cut the curves until all the quilting is done.
    You may mark your intended edges with basting thread or other marking pen.

  • Please make sure your quilt top and backing are square. Straight edges are required for loading your
    quilt top and backing to the machine rollers.
