Hi all, new here and fairly new to quilting. All my quilts so far have been simple blocks where I didn't bind, just used the inside out method, they have turned out ok, and the recipients have all been pleased with them.
I am now embarking on a new project, a play mat for my daughter, she is almost crawling so I need something to put in my wooden floors to cushion her inevitable falls.
I've pieced the quilt top and I'm ready to base and quilt, question 1 is what method is best for basting a large quilt (1x2 meters)
Question 2, I am using ribbon to bind, is there a specific method (for machining) ribbon binding?
Question 3, because this will be a floor mat, I don't really want it to bunch up when she is rolling around on it, I have some medium fusible interfacing, would it be ok to use this on the backing material (100% cotton) in order to help keep it flat? I was also thinking of dotting on some puff paint to help it become non-slip, but I'll decide that once it's finished :)
Thanks in advance
