    One method I know is to sew the top pieces together with right sides together, then on the back - lap one side over the other and hand stitch it down. You may go to Georgia Bonesteel's website or google "Lap Quilting" for clearer instrutions.

    You may even go to the top of this board and do a search and find something.

    You have to hand stitch one side (usually the back). That's why I don't make those kinds of quilts; can't handle all the extra hand stitching!

    Here's another one involves hand sewing though.
