How do you layer all quilts together?

Do you quilt through all three layers?

Quilters call the process of assembling the three layers (quilt top, batting, and backing) as making a quilt “sandwich.” It is best to assemble the layers on a large, flat surface where the entire quilt can be spread out.

What do you put in the middle of a quilt?

Batting: the cushy middle of a quilt – can be made from cotton, polyester or wool. Typically bought according to the size of the quilt you’re making – found in rolls. Bias-tape: strips of fabric used to bind the edges of a quilt.

How much bigger should batting be than quilt top?

As for your batting and backing, they should be both cut 6-8 inches larger than the quilt top.

What can I use instead of batting in a quilt?

A flannel sheet is a good alternative. You can also use a flannel sheet for the batting of a traditional quilt, but check first to make sure the pattern doesn’t show through the top or backing. For an even lighter weight, you can use a regular sheet. Regular sheets will give the quilt less body than flannel.
