Quilter needs advice

Posted by calverttx (My Page) on

Quilt is ready for final quilting on border. I am using a tape on pattern from the above website.

The Quilt. I have not cut the backing or the batting, it is just pinned up. I would prefer to quilt on machine using the feed dog up. Is this okay? Should I cut the backing and batting before or after the quilting?

I am sitting here with it on the floor shaking my head saying HMMMMMM. All of you ladies are so smart and you always help so let me hear from you. I need all the different ways I might do this. Thanks so much. Nancy

I have used this product during a year long QAYG class when I first started quilting. The website has a very, very good tutorial; read it and follow the directions, especially for positioning the corners.
On a regular home sewing machine, sandwich the quilt (top-batting-backing) quilt the center as you normally would. Position the Borders Made Easy on the borders one side at a time, then stitch with the feed dogs up. Follow the lines. It is easy for stitching.....not so easy to remove the paper afterwards.
I suggest you trace the pattern on some paper and stitch on a practice sample sandwich just to get the feel and stitch length correct. Practice will help get you into the groove.

Make sure you have enough Borders Made Easy rolls. Once sewn and torn away, it is destroyed. You cannot re-use it.
