Solving Problems With Your Quilt
Our quilter is trained in dealing with problem areas with quilts (and we all have them). Here are some hints on how to put on borders correctly.
First, pay attention to your borders. Make sure the seams of the border are all pressed in one direction with no twisting.
Second, measure your quilt to get the average width and length, and then cut your borders to that measurement. This will keep your quilt from having wavy borders. Getting wavy borders to lie flat is a challenge for our quilting machine; sometimes we need to place tucks in them to be able to quilt over them.
