i understand how a quilt is "birthed", but what i don't understand is how to make the edges flat.
first ... do you pin it? do you press it? do you stick your hand all the way in there to smooth the seam allowances while pressing? (this sounds dangerous!) i can imagine my hand cramping if i had to roll the seam from the outside!
second ... does the batting help the quilt sandwich keep its shape? is the batting on top or the bottom when sewing? what is the seam allowance? how much should i leave for the opening?
gee whiz...anything information would be so helpful.
