Not only am I using pins to hold the quilt sandwich together, but I also used fusible batting. This requires a large enough space to spread the quilt out flat. I laid out the backing with the wrong side up and ironed it out. After laying the batting on top of the backing, I placed the quilt top face up on the batting. I then ironed the quilt top to the batting. When ironing start in the middle of the quilt and work out to the edges.The fusible batting is not a sure way to keep the quilt from slipping while sewing so I also pinned the quilt sandwich together.
Now, I am ready to quilt. I hope to get some quilting done this next week but it is spring break here and my girls will be here from college. I can’t wait to see them but that usually means I don’t get much done.
