I'd find it hard to do a large quilt this way; but, if it works for you stick with it.

Get on UTube and search for the various steps. There are some very good tutorial videos out there. We were all learners at one point...ask at the fabric store if anyone knows an experienced quilter that you could get some help from. Good luck!! Welcome here...everyone will offer plenty of advice!!! :-)

Yeah I know! I'd love to! But I really don't think they have such things in my little neck of the woods! :)
If there is a quilting shop near you there are people who give lessons...

Basting the backing and batting would have some positive results, even if you want to sandwich it. For myself, getting the three layers together was very hard, I kept getting bulges in places. I'd be tempted to baste the b & b together, and then baste on the top!!LOL

This is called 'burping'. Do you sew or tie the three layers together after you 'burp' your quilt? If not you will have a mess.

Read the batting label to determine how close you need to tie or quilt the layers to keep the batting from pulling apart and bunching together.

I use the sandwich method, but I hate doing bindings. I fold and fold again a couple of inches of the backing over the front to make a 1/2 to 3/4 inch border. Then I stitch it down from the front side. I used to hand stitch, then went to machine. Now I use a machine blanket stitch that looks really neat and has almost become my signature.
