Terms and Conditions
Preparing your Quilt.
All I need to turn your beautiful quilt top into a finished quilt are three separate things. 1. The top 2. Your wadding 3. Your backing. Do NOT baste them together.
Please make sure that your quilt top is square. Wavy borders which do not lie flat, will also not lie flat when quilted. Ensure all loose threads are cut and that there are no threads on the reverse of the quilt as these can show through to the top once quilted, in lighter areas. This cannot be rectified once quilted. Your quilt top should be free of embellishments. Buttons, sequins, gems etc can be added afterwards if desired. Iron your quilt top and fold carefully, ready for quilting. Label the top of your quilt clearly with a pinned note to ensure it is the right way up when quilted!
Wadding. Your wadding must be at least 4inches larger the whole way around your quilt. You can purchase wadding from me direct, I stock 80/20 (cotton/polyester) wadding at £14.00 p/meter.
The backing. Your backing needs to be at least 4 inches larger than your quilt front, the whole way around. These means that your backing should be 8 inches longer and wider than your quilt top as a minimum. If your backing has a join, cut off any selvedge’s before stitching the seam, use at least a ½ inch seam allowance. It must be pressed with an open seam and the join be positioned horizontal across your backing. Trim the top and bottom of your backing to ensure they are straight and square. Press again.
Thread choice. I have so many beautiful colours to choose from including metallic and variegated colours. All thread is 100% polyester and is manufactured by GLIDE threads. The price of the thread is included in your quilting quote. Please ask to see the colour chart so you can choose the perfect shade of thread.
Binding services. This is an optional service. Please provide your premade binding with your quilt. This will then be attached by machine and finished by hand or machine. Binding strips need to be cut at 2.5 inches wide, joined and then folded in half and ironed. The charge for pre-made binding attached to your quilt is £2.20p/foot by machine, or £3.50 p/foot for hand finished.
Cut Down. Would you like your quilt to be trimmed all the way around the edge or simply given back to you as it comes off the long arm? £7.50 fee for cut down service.
Collection/Delivery. To have your quilt collected and hand delivered back to you, £10.00 fee up to 10 miles from GL91BD. (45pence p/mile charged after 10 miles) If you would like your quilt posted back to you, Return postage fee is £8.00 fixed p/quilt.
Full payment is required on collection/delivery of the completed quilt. An Invoice will be sent and payment via BACS.
5% off your first quilt. Please enquire about loyalty scheme and seasonal discounts ☺
I do not accept returns or refunds. If you are unsatisfied with the quilting please contact me direct.
