Quilting as you go ... part 2



The quilt is coming along, and it has been fun. My one recommendation is to pin, pin, pin. It's very easy for the backing to slip. Also, quilting pins make it far easier - everyday dressmaking pins just aren't long enough or sharp enough. And, as you can see, the edges need trimming, so you need a rotary cutter and cutting mat... buy the largest mat you can, as you won't regret it.


I now need to think about the edge binding.
