Backing and Batting , when is too much

Too much backing and batting on the sides of your quilts are not a good thing. Your quilt is sandwiched on rollers (the machine). Every time we roll your quilt to a sewable area the back roller material gets larger (the sewn area). If your sides have too much we have to fold that towards the quilt, so it then becomes "double rolled" on the sides. This causes distortion each and every time it is rolled. Keeping your batting and backing the same size requirements of your longarmer is the best thing you can do. Not every longarmer cuts these for you. This should be already done when it comes to the longarmer. Remember, the flater your quilt lays, the better end product. Think about purchasing battings on rolls vs bagged. Bagged has folds that don't always lay flat and don't sit well under the quilt. Bulk batting has one fold and lays flat.
