DWR:: Basting the Quilt Sandwich

Quilt sandwiching. I always refer to my previous recaps of quilt sandwiches, but here's what it looks like on the double wedding ring quilt.

  1. Make a quilt back.
    I like scrappy quilt backs, it's a good way to use up some leftovers. This one uses some fabric from the top, so you can see a larger piece of the design patterns. 'Just make sure it's larger than the quilt top.

  2. Mark center of edges of quilt backing with safety pins and tape to floor with masking tape. Use "parachuting" method to ensure it lays flat.

  6. Continue basting until entire quilt is done. I like to do some basting around the entire perimeter of the quilt, maybe ~1 inch from the edge. It makes it a pinch easier to attach the binding, and with these rounded edges, I needed all the help I could get.
    5. Continue basting until entire quilt is done, and edges of quilt are secured as well.
