Prepare your top:
- Press all the seams flat (you can press to the side or open, whichever you prefer)
- Trim all thread ends
Prepare your backing:
- The backing needs to be 10″ bigger than your top in each direction. For example, if your top is 50″ x 60″, your backing must be 60″ x 70″ (larger is ok, smaller is not).
- If piecing your backing, do not leave the fabric selvage in your seam allowance.
- Press all seams flat (either to the side or open, whichever you prefer)
DO NOT baste your quilt.
