Sandwiching all these charity quilt tops!
At least one of you wanted to see how I sandwich these quilts so I thought I’d take some pictures while I did some of the first of them and show you.
Here’s what I use:
Backing and top, of course:
First I put the backing on the table, right side down and clip it to the table.
Then I put the batting on the top and clip it down.
Then I added the top and clip it.
Then I pin it. I lift up the top two layers and spray glue between the layers, hopefully capturing most of the “over spray” in between the layers. I then pin using safety pins here and there:
I do a whole width of the table first and then I work on the second part by trimming the batting off on the end and gently unclipping the backing from the table and pulling it over and doing the second part of the quilt the same way.
It’s that simple
And that’s how I sandwich my quilts. Right now I’m trying to do 2 a day until I get the first 10 done. I will then reevaluate where I am with other projects and see if I want to keep going on quilting charity quilts and/or continue to finish up other projects.
Someday when we get a better internet connection and can actually upload videos wtihout it being a big deal and holding my breath that it will work, I’ll make more videos. Right now it is an exercise in frustration as our upload speed is incredibly slow.
And that’s what’s going on around here today!
