The backing material has to be 100% cotton fabric and square if provided by the customer, unless the customer
chooses wide quilt backing from our website.

All appliques have to be stitched down tight.  
The top has to be pressed, lay flat and not be wavy or crooked. If there is a problem with your top you will be contacted and it will be discussed before it is quilted.
