quilt sandwich

The quilt sandwich – almost finished basting.

I’m being much more careful than usual because I know this is going to be tricky.

  • Established that initial two-layer sandwich should be the interior cloth on the bottom, overlaid with one of the pieced cloths, right side facing up.
  • First I had the smaller pieced cloth laid on the interior cloth. Then realized I should have the larger one there so I could see the edges of the smaller one when sewing. Started over.
  • Spent a lot of time centering and smoothing the two initial layers. Nothing is “square” so this was a bit of a challenge.
  • Basted the initial two layers all the way around.
  • Then laid on the second pieced cloth, right side down. More centering and smoothing. Ensure the middle layer (pieced cloth) is visible all the way around.
  • Baste down the top layer. I’m taking a lunch break in the middle of this.
  • Rule: do not trim anything until I test turning it inside out and it looks right!
