    Thank you for this useful info. This was a question I had on my mind just this past week. I do use scraps but it would need a backing. Hugs to you. Omacookie

    What I would like to know is how much larger should the backing be than the quilt so when you start doing the stitching the edges don't shrink more than you would like.

    I've always seen 4 inches all around. More experienced will let us know.
