QUILTING AND FINISHING
Cut the backing fabric in half across the width. Remove the selvedges and re-join the pieces with a ½in seam. Press the seam open.
Press the quilt top and backing well. Make a quilt sandwich by placing the backing fabric right side down, the batting on top, then the quilt top centrally and right side up. Baste the layers together.
Quilt as desired. This quilt was quilted with a floral pattern by Mary of See Mary Quilt.
Trim off the excess batting and backing fabric and square up the quilt.
Join the binding strips together end-to-end using diagonal seams. Press the seams open and trim away the dog ears, then fold in half lengthwise, WST, and press.
Sew the binding to the front of the quilt, folding a mitre at each corner, then fold it over to the back of the quilt and hand stitch in place to finish.
