Preparing Your Quilt for Longarming
To ensure the best finished results here are some tips:
Check your quilt top for open seams, this can be a result of fabrics shifting while sewing.
Check to make sure all pins have been removed.
Do your borders lie flat, or do they have a bit of a wave to them? The most common reason they have been applied incorrectly. Here is a link from APQS the explains how to attach border to avoid the wave: How to tackle wavy borders - APQS
Press as you go as well as when the quilt top is complete.
Clip threads especially if you have a light or white background fabric. Dark threads can show through after longarming is complete.
