Step 7: Attaching the backing
This part has always been the most difficult for me (I'm not a professional quilter!) so I am particularly careful at this step. With your quilt top face up, lay your piece of backing face down. Line up all edges and pin into place. Sew together. It will look like this, backing material, quilt top, batting. Making sure that everything is smooth, match, pin, and sew each long side. Finally, match and pin together the layers at the bottom, but only sew across part of the way. I sewed my a little in from each corner leaving a hole in the middle. It should look like a giant pillow case that needs turned inside out.
