PREPARATION INFORMATION

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE MY QUILT TOP?

Your quilt top should be pressed, squared and free of excessive threads.

If you are sending backing and batting along with your quilt top, they will need to be 8” (4”for each side) longer and wider than the quilt top. The backing should be pressed and squared. If possible, keep the selvage edge of the fabric on the outside borders of the backing.

*Bed sheets and high loft batting will not be accepted.

We can also provide the batting (Hobbs 80/20) for additional $10 per yard. Pressing & removal of excessive threads can also be ordered at $20 per hour.

QUILT CARE INSTRUCTIONS

HOW SHOULD I WASH MY NEW QUILT?

Hand-washing is the preferred method for cleaning quilts, as machine washing can cause the stitching to unravel.

HAND-WASHING INSTRUCTIONS

Fill a deep, laundry sink or bathtub with cold water. Be certain that the sink or tub is very clean and has no residue from cleaning agents that could cause damage to the quilt. Use a liquid detergent that is gentle and free of dyes and perfumes. A liquid detergent will disperse in the water and leave less residue on the fabric.

Add 1/2 cup vinegar to the water to both brighten colors and soften the quilt.

Place your quilt in the water, being certain that the entire quilt gets wet. Gently move your quilt around in the water. Allow the quilt to remain in the water for about 10 minutes. Next, drain the wash water and fill the tub again with fresh water. Repeat draining and refilling the tub until the water and quilt are soap free – clear water and no suds.

MACHINE WASHING INSTRUCTIONS

If you decide to machine wash, use cold water, a low-sudsing gentle detergent like Dreft or Woolite, and the shortest, most delicate wash cycle. You can also use a color catcher in if there are really saturated colors in your quilt.

If you have hard water or iron bacteria in your water source, you should use distilled water for washing your quilt so that no minerals stain your fabric.

HOW SHOULD I DRY MY NEW QUILT?

Proper drying is key to keeping your quilt at its best. Wet quilts must be handled gently. Pulling can break seams and cause damage. The quilt will be heavy and should be dried flat. To lift the quilt from the tub, use a white sheet to create a sling. Allow the excess water to drain, then place the quilt on a bed of heavy towels. Cover with more towels and roll up to absorb water. Move the quilt to another bed of dry towels, spread out flat and allow to dry. Placing a fan in the room will help to speed the process.

If you have space, place a sheet on the grass outside and spread out the quilt. Cover the quilt with another clean sheet and allow to dry. Never suspend a wet quilt from a clothesline. This causes too much stress on seams and cause tearing and can displace batting.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I WASH MY QUILT?

For any quilt, less washing is best. For a quilt that you use on your bed daily, washing once per year should be sufficient unless you have animals that sleep on the bed or your quilt attracts stain makers. Antique or heirloom quilts should be cleaned less often. Between cleanings, the quilts should be aired outside or placed in the dryer on the air only no heat cycle to freshen.

HOW SHOULD I STORE MY QUILT?

If you plan to store your freshly laundered quilt, be certain it is completely dry. Allow an extra 24 to 48 hours for drying before storing. One of the best ways to store a quilt is on an extra bed. Keeping the quilt flat will eliminate creases and wear on folds. Simply cover the quilt with a clean sheet or bedspread.

If flat is not an option, store the quilt in a cotton or muslin bag or in an acid-free box. Do not store in the attic or basement where moisture and temperature levels will fluctuate. Before you fold the quilt, use acid-free tissue paper as padding to prevent sharp creases. You can also roll your quilt around an acid-free tube and slip it in a cotton bag.

If you are storing your quilt in a wooden box or dresser, wrap it in the acid-free tissue to avoid contact with the wood. Oils and acids in the wood can cause spotting and damage. Once a year, bring your quilt out of storage to air and to check for damage. Refolding will also prevent permanent creases and damage.

Proper care of your beautiful quilt will insure it will last for generations to come.
