Lap quilt ... rail fence variation. Top together with few problems. Sandwiching is another thing altogether. Using polyester batting. (saving warm & natural?). Problem: I can't seem to get everything to lie flat and smooth. Have basted with pins about 4 times. Is it the batting? Is there a trick?
Once I thought I had it right and tried machine quilting with stitch in a ditch...made quite a mess...learned to rip out sandwiched quilt. I think I may tie my first project. The machine I'm using is over 45 years old.
I am having fun...just a little frustrated. I'm actually a good sewer.
Reupholstering chairs is sooo much easier.
squares all pieced & sandwiched
