Lets make a quilt sandwich. Lay your backing fabric down ( right side facing down) then your wadding and finally your complete quilt block. Your backing and wadding need to be at least 2 inches bigger all round than the front block. Pin or bast and we are now ready to quilt.
Don't be afraid of quilting please you have 3 choices now and all of them are great. You can hand quilt, straight-line quilt with a walking foot or free motion quilt. I choose to free motion quilt. I lowered the feed dogs in my machine. changed my foot to a darning foot and off I went trying to keep a consistent flow.
I then trimmed off the excess wadding and backing fabric. I like to add a 1/8 inch seam around the edge just to keep everything where it should be, you don't have to do this it's up to you.
Next time we will be making the backing to our cushion make sure you wash your backing fabric for this stage. Happy sewing.
