How to Tie a Quil tby The Quilt Ladies

Pin It

The backing goes down first, good side of fabric to the floor. I use the middle of our living room. Then batting, this is cotton, and I used two layers, for kids and being tied I like that, softer fill as I know it will be washed for a very long time

Then add the pieced quilt top, I use Quilter’s straight pins on something being tied I don’t hand baste. I would baste if hand quilting. And I use quilters pins they leave no/few holes in your 

fabric.

I move it to the dining room table, and start to tie. I have a great light above the dining room table and I’m comfortable there, and can see the television. I can do about anything with the sound of an old movie in the background.
