How to Prepare Your Quilt Backing for your Longarmer

Important Requirements

Backing material should be 3 to 4 inches wider on all sides than the quilt top.

If you are piecing the backing, trim off the selvages before seaming. Try to make your seams in an area that will not be subjected to a lot of wear such as from folding.

Press the backing.

Check on the square of your backing by holding two corners together, and the  material should hang evenly all the way around.  If they are uneven, the edges need to be trimmed so they are even.

Your longarmers thank you.
