I am new at quilting and here's my question. Can you add a border after the center part of your quilt is quilted?
The center part of my quilt I want to do a stitch in the ditch method and run my stitches right off the quilt edge. Then I want to add a 5" border onto it that will wrap around to the back of the quilt so the back of the quilt will have a 5" border as well. Do I just put the batting in the border loose or does it need to as attached to the quilt as well? Once the border is on then I'd have to quilt the border seperately.
Does this make sense?
