SQUARE YOUR QUILT TOP & BACK
When your quilt is loaded onto my machine for quilting, it is pinned onto canvas leaders. If your quilt layers aren't square, they will not lay flat. This can result in puckers, pleats, and/or waviness in your finished quilt.
ATTACHING BORDERS TO YOUR QUILT TOP
The best way to achieve a squared top is to measure properly before adding your borders. Here's how:
Do this for both the width and the length. This will help eliminate fullness and wavy or puckered borders.
SQUARING UP YOUR BACKING
To test whether or not your backing fabric is square, fold your fabric in half and line up your selvage edges so they are even. If your folded edge doesn't look even and is wavy, your backing fabric isn't square. To square your backing fabric:
If you have pieced two or more pieces of fabric together to create your quilt back, trim the edges even so there is no "stair step" where the pieces are sewn together.
