    Reversible quilt

    I have recently completed the Bamboo and Pinwheel quilts. I want to use the Pinwheel quilt as the backing for the Bamboo quilt. I am not sure how to quilt this! Any suggestions?

    I don't know, but I highly recommend you change your name so it's NOT your email address.

    I would just do a large stipple or meander. What I usually do.

    It's not the easiest thing in the world to line up a pieced back and top. Much easier if you hand quilt or use a domestic machine. Tricky on a long arm

    I did a reversible quilt it is my avatar. I used batting on the back of both but quilted them separate then hand stitched them together.

    Nabobw, that's a great idea. I have used meandering, but quilting separately allows for quilting specific to the patterns!

    Did you machine stitch with just the batting on the back of each?
