    I'm particularly interested right now as my "adopted" nice just had a preemie, and I've been uncertain as what and how to make for the baby!

    Are they talking about seams on the backing? I'll have to ask about that since I end up with a rather large strip left from the flannel that I was just going to sew together to make more backings.

    No question is ever dumb.

    Birthing a quilt is when you place the backing fabric right-side up and the quilt top right-side down on top of it. Sew around all 4 edges leaving an opening. Turn it right-side out and stitch the opening closed. Then quilt as desired. I've just been doing SITD on these. If you use batting, it's backing fabric, quilt top, batting (I think I actually did use batting and regular cotton backing on the "Zoo" quilt. This is a little faster because you don't use any binding. At first it seemed so wrong to have the batting on top. But if you sandwich it in the middle like we normally do, it won't end up between them when you turn it.

    The backing they wanted solid, no seams ... and the front, generally they were keeping the seams away from the centre area, so that it did not rub thru the layers to the baby, being that the baby would be more in the centre of the quilt. As I said, I;m sure every hospital has different "rules", as to what they believe is best for the preemies in their care.
