Finishing Quilt:


1. On wrong side of quilt top, lightly mark a seam line ¼" from raw edges all the way around the quilt top.

3. Cut the batting fabric 22" x 30" and center on top of the batting with right side up.


4. Center the quilt top, right side down, on top of the backing fabric.


5. Smooth layers and pin together around the edges.


6. Sew around the entire quilt top on marked ¼" seam line, through all layers leaving a 5" opening along one side for turning.


7. Trim batting and backing fabric to the exact side of the quilt top.


8. Turn the quilt right side out through opening between quilt top and backing fabric.


9. Press. Hand sew opening closed.

 

Prepare to Quilt:


1. Using small safety pins, pin-baste layers together every 4 inches. If you prefer you may thread baste layers instead.


2. Decide if you want to machine quilt or hand quilt your project.


Machine Quilting


1. Set the machine for a slightly longer stitch length.


2. Stitch around quilt ¼" from finished edges.


3. Determine how much quilting you would like. Begin in the middle of the quilt and stitch down the center of chosen seams (this is called “stitch in the ditch”).


Hand Quilting:


1. Stitch around the quilt ¼" from the finished edges.


2. Stitch ¼" from seam lines using a small, even running stitch.
