The quilt back is a 100% polyester velveteen blanket.
With a quilt that is too big for the table, start with the middle section, lay the quilt back out flat and clamp or tape it in place on all four sides of the table. There is no quilt batting in this quilt. When using a cotton quilt backing with batting and quilt top, the cotton back is stretched taut before the batting is laid out flat on top of it.
Match the centre back with centre quilt top.
Start in the middle, smooth out the quilt top to the outside edges so it is laying completely flat and wrinkle free.
Pin baste quilt top to bottom beginning in the middle. This quilt was pin basted every six inches.
Two entwined hearts were quilted on all the blank purple squares.Pfaff Dynamic Spring Motion 6D foot.
I quilted a one spiral in the centre of each nine patch.
The six inch text blocks and the pink squares are not quilted. The outside border is heart shaped leaves.Dara's tutorial to make binding. Instead of hand stitching the binding back in place, I machine stitch using a 3 stitch zig-zag on the front side.
Gotta love those mitred corners.
