LongArm Quilting

Have your quilt tops come to life, when they are quilted by Dale on an APQS Millenium.


  • Mark top edge (direction) of quilt with a pin or "Top" note.
  • Trim all loose threads from the back. Loose threads may show through the top or back.
  • Be sure all seams are secure. Check to make sure none of your seams are coming loose. If you have a pieced border, for best results, "stay stitch" 1/4" around the edge of your quilt top. This helps keep the seams from separating while being quilted.
  • Be sure your top is "square". Measure your side borders as well as the middle of the length of your top. Your measurements should be the same.
  • Measure the top and bottom and across the middle width wise. These three measurements should be the same. If not, there is a possibility that there will be puckers or tucks in your quilt.
  • Seams should be pressed.
  • Quilt must be clean and free of any odour to prevent transfer to others quilts
  • Do not Baste quilt. Bring, or send, layers separately.

  • Make sure your backing is square and at least 8" larger than your quilt top. Your batting should be 8" larger also.
  • If you are not sure if your backing is square, please make it larger so that I may square it up.
  • If using a pieced backing. Cut off salvages and seam with a 1/2" seam pressed open.
Thank you so much.
