We know that choosing a top stitch design can be nerve racking but you have made a beautiful quilt top and to get to the point of completion you have achieved, follow your instincts. If you aren’t sure, message us with at least two or three designs you are considering for your quilt and an image of your quilt and we will give you our best input. BUT it is your quilt! You do know best and we can be that friend that gives you our best guess.
We only use high-quality thread because it holds up better over the lifetime of your quilt and it delivers the best result for your top stitch.
If you would like a bold impact to the top stitch, chose a contrasting or strongest color in the design of your print fabrics, if you would like a top stitch design that blends or is more muted to your design then choose something very neutral. A beige, pale yellow, grey or middle ground color. What is a middle ground color? In the spectrum of very dark to the lightest colors in your quilt, chose a color you see in the design that looks like the color that would be between the darkest to lightest therefore the middle ground color.
Cotton batting provides a heavier feel to your quilt, more reminiscent of older quilts.
Polyester batting provides a higher loft, lighter weight and can be warmer than the cotton batting.
A blended batting with polyester and cotton provides the two.
Iron the top side and backing. Iron seams consistently so the surface is very smooth. Iron all to the right side, all to the left side or down the middle but be consistent.
The quilt backing should extend 3 inches in all directions that means 3 inches to the width and 3 inches to the length. Square up backing.
Cut all loose threads on top and bottom side. Threads show through if left unclipped on bottom side.
