I was wondering if I could do a quilt as you go without the backing and then do a quick stitch in the ditch to secure the back to the quilt. I have read that when you quilt as you go you hand sew the backing pieces together.
I don't have that kind of time to finish a memorial quilt for a friend. I have spent so much time agonizing other this, I want it to be perfect and I am so new and inexperienced, plus when you print out the fabric photos the fabric is so different from regular fabric. If you need to unsew a row of the stitching, the holes never ever close back up like with regular fabric. So, I have to make the photo smaller, which means adding sashing to the block or reprint it.
Y'all always have such wonderful advice, thanks for the help, Maribeth
