Check out the videos here to help you understand how to prepare your quilt top ready for quilting. I used my iphone to make these Sunday Shorts and I haven't learnt how to edit the films yet so they aren't the best of quality I'm afraid ...but hey-ho I'm sure they will get better. Let me know what you think of them and thanks for watching.
Preparing your quilt top for quilting.
Take your time to spend 30 minutes or so to clean and tidy up your top, remove stray threads and check for any needles or pins that may inadvertently got trapped in a seam allowance. Clip thread tails an trim back any darker fabric in the seam allowance that may shadow through to the top and make sure all your seams are pressed in the right direction.
