My lacy work is evolving in to a small quilt thing…..and I need some advice from all you clever and beautiful quilters (and other non-quilters too, of course).
This is where I am
I have sewn the vertical seams, and will sew the horizontal today. From there on I am unsure. I know I don’t want it to be too bulky nor have a visible binding. I also have to think about hanging it some how.
I have this material for the backing. It is quite soft and light.
Should I use some batting between the layers? I have this that could work.
How would you recommend I attach the layers? Is it as simple as making like a pillow case/cushion cover and turning it inside out?
Do you think it needs binding/edging?
How do I go about quilting the layers? I am happy to handstitch and was thinking about carefully working my way along the seams.
And lastly (unless there are questions I haven’t even thought about!) how do I attach a hanging device, pockets etc? I want that to be as unobtrusive as possible too.
Thank you thank you thank you for any advice you can give me. 😘
