    Hi from Australia, I picked up quilting about 4 years ago (self tought) saw in this site the term 'birthing a quilt' could someone explain the meaning as I've never heard of it.

    Rather than having quilt top, batting, backing, quilting the quilt then put on binding. Birthing is sewing the top (batting) and backing right sides together leaving an opening large to turn the quilt right side out. Stitch the opening closed. Hope this makes sense to you. http://www.quiltingboard.com/search....=true&s=5&s=10 See if this link helps. Welcome from Louisiana:)

    Welcome from another Texan. I think birthing means sewing the quilt right sides together leaving an opening and then pulling the quilt through the opening and sewing the opening closed. I may be wrong, though.
