As a quilter, I have several projects on the table at one time. With rainy weather this week I decided to get some quilts "sandwiched" and ready for quilting. Thanks to my creative girls (who are always thinking) we have put together a little tutorial for you. Let's gather our supplies and get stitchin'.
quilt backing material
iron and ironing board
tape or pins
quilt adhesive spray (optional)
pins or needle and thread
a surface large enough for your quilt
a table or the floor works very well
|ironing the backing|
|ironing the top|
|quilt back, tape, pins|
|batting laying over the quilt back|
|quilt top laying over the batting and backing|
|decide the basting method, stitch or pin|
|pins every 2-3", basting along edge|
|ready to quilt|
This quilt is ready to go to the machine or the frame. I do not mark my quilts before quilting unless the design is intense. If you were to use a detailed pattern or if you prefer a line to follow, be sure to mark your quilt top before you start basting it.
We hope you find this tutorial helpful and informative. I welcome any questions you may have..please leave them in the comment box and I will reply as soon as possible. Have a blessed day!

* a simple quilt can be made using a few yards of your favorite material for a top and back, layer as above, and quilt by stitching in lines, loops or a cute design of your own
