(Example: 60" x 80" quilt top = 68" x 88" backing)

Square and press all backings and quilt tops. Trim loose threads.

Please Note: Excess fullness may cause puckers and tucks when quilted.

I request permission to photograph your quilt for publication purposes.
If your quilt is displayed or published I would appreciate recognition for the machine quilting.
