If supplying backing and batting, it must be 4 inches larger than the quilt top on all sides. A patterned backing fabric works better if multiple thread colors will be used on the top and back. Backing seams should be pressed open and selvages removed. Your quilt top should be pressed and edge stitched if you have multiple seams in the borders. The quilting will only be as smooth as your piecing. If you have tucks or flared borders, I will do my best to ease them in, but it is possible there will be tucks in the quilting.
I usually do not quilt t-shirt quilts or other quilts made out of fabric other than cotton. If this is the type of quilt you need quilted, please talk to me about it as some of these quilts are easier to quilt than others. Also, I will only take backings made out of fabrics other than cotton (such as Minky or fleece) if they have less than 25% stretch.
