    Has anyone ever tried hanging a quilt sandwich to pin? Seems like the fabric would hang smooth. I'm a newby, just asking.

    taping it to the wall and spray basting, yes!

    Speaking of sandwiching....I have a flannel pieced top. Iwant to use flannel in the middle and the back. My fabris is not wide enough so I know I will have to put two pieces together for the middle and the back. My concern is 2 seams sandwiched?Will that be a problem?

    That's probably too much bulk, even if you offset the seams.

    For the piece in the middle for the batting, I would zigzag the edges together, thus avoiding the bulk of a seam.

    I do the same with regular cotton batting if I have to join pieces together to get the right size. No seam = no bulk.

    And for the back piece, sew the seams with a slightly smaller stitch length and press the seam(s) open. That should reduce the bulk, and the result will a nice flat, no bumps quilt.

    Good luck!

    Put one of the seams horizontal, and one of the vertical. you will only have one thick spot in the center :D:D:D
