1. Basting
4m

1. Basting

Finishing your quilt begins with a good sandwich. Not a BLT, but a layer of batting sandwiched between your quilt top and back. Maria shows you how to prepare your quilt top, choose the best batting for your project, then create your quilt sandwich by basting the layers together with a temporary adhesive.

2. Quilting
6m

2. Quilting

Begin your quilting adventure with stitching in the ditch along the seams between your blocks to secure the quilt layers. Then start the all-over quilting, with simple, straight lines, zigzags and even curves. Maria also shares tips for handling a bulky quilt and troubleshooting creases in your fabric.

3. Binding
8m

3. Binding

Finish your quilt with a tidy binding around the edges. Maria shares tips for preparing your binding strips and squaring up your quilt. You'll attach your binding entirely by machine, first on the back side, then on the front, with mitered corners. Maria shows you how, for a fabulous finished quilt!
