So I'm still new to all this quilting stuff. So you veteran quilters how do you sew your batting on? I sew it to the back of my top. Then I place my front and back together face to face. (Hope that makes sense) Sew them together on 3 sides and then flip it right side out. Then sew the 4th side shut. Not sure if this is the best way. Any suggestions?

Depends on the type of quilt you wish.. one that is *turned* like a pillowcase.. or one that is bound with binding. :)

On goodness. Ok, I think you need to take a couple beginner classes, just the to get the know how and you will be ok from there on.

Yeah I know! I'd love to! But I really don't think they have such things in my little neck of the woods! :)

I think most ladies here use binding. I practiced on a quilt for my kitty. I think (I'm a newbie too!) you just pin your three layers together (top, batting and backing) and start quilting from there. When you're finished quilting the top, you'll have all these rough, open edges which you close up with the binding. There's a lot of good tutorials on youtube, and/or if you can find some quilting books at your library. :)

I have made table runners this way but I think for a large quilt you should do the sandwich way. Top,batting and then backing. Baste or pin and then quilt. Lastly add binding.

Yeah I've tried it that way too! My binding corners never look right. Most of the quilts/blankets I've done this way were for babies. But I'm wanting to make a wedding quilt for a friend and one for my brother/sister-in-law to be. I'll have to do some looking for books or on Youtube.

Where do you live in Southwest VA? There may be classes closer than you think.
