Longarm Quilting

We use a 12 ft. Bernina Q20 Longarm for our quilting here at FORK MTN QUILTING.  We also utilize a Q-Matic computer to automate the process as well as giving us the ability to quilt many different and intricate design patterns to meet your needs.

Important Info to keep in mind:

 

Quilt Top

  • Give a final pressing from the front to the whole top just before sending it for quilting to be sure no pleats or tucks are pressed in.

  • Secure all seams, especially along the edges.

  • Remove all loose threads from the back and front of the quilt.

  • Mark the TOP of your quilt by pinning a slip of paper labeled "TOP" on that part of the quilt. **This will be at the head of the bed or top of a wall hanging.​​​​​

  • Carefully Fold each layer of the top and back separately to minimize wrinkling after pressing. Place on a plastic hanger until delivered or shipped. NOTE: You may choose to have us do any preparation such as pressing, squaring, mending seams or trimming threads for an additional charge.

Quilt Backing

  • 100% cotton is generally preferred

  • Remove all selvages

  • Use 1/2 inch seam allowances, for stability, if piecing the backing.

  • Cut your backing and batting at least 8" wider and longer than your quilt top. (4" larger on each side)  Example - 60"x80" quilt top needs a back and batting that is 68"x88".

  • Square backing AND batting.

  • Press backing.

  • Mark the TOP of the backing on the right side so any seams on the back or directional backing will be oriented the way you wish in relation to the "TOP" of the quilt.

 

Batting

​We prefer to use quality batting such as Quilter's Dream or Hobbs however, you are welcome to provide your batting as long as it is specifically labeled as "suitable for machine quilting". 

You can buy only what you need by purchasing batting by the linear inch from us!
