    This is the way I do it most of the time unless making a reversible quilt. Thanks for the reminder and the pictures.

    same way put you top and your batting and back quilt but leaving 1/4 all around then join of course you still measure as always to get your border right

    Thanks, that is how I was planning to do it. I thought it should be more complicated. :mrgreen: Just have to remember to leave at least 1/2 inch ( in my case) unquilted.

    I always wondered about this method, sometimes I will read a western love book and their always taking their piecing with them where ever they go as well as quilting. I knew they were not carrying a quilt top in their basket.:)
