Step 5: Sew the Front and Back

1) Layer all 3 pieces on on top of another.
Insure that the pretty sides are facing each other. 
(Battery pocket piece, quilt backing, and quilt front.)

2) Pin them

3) Sew around the perimeter leaving the one side open.

4) Cut 2 layers of cotton batting, 1/4 inch smaller than the seams of the quilt.

5) Press the  quilt, turn it inside out,
place the batting inside insuring it gets nice and flat.
( I can hear the quilters cringing... but I tell you it did work ;-)   )

I don't make quilts and barely sew, but I was looking through the competition for this month's contest and read your beautifully written Instructable. It is easy to understand, has great photos and seems complete in every detail. More importantly, it was done for the right reasons.<br><br>The best of luck to you in the Monthly Challenge.
Thank you SOOOO much for that comment. I try hard to make these projects fun &amp; reproducible, and often wonder, how well I've managed. :-)
This is wonderful! Nicely done. <br><br>Though I don't believe what you say about soldering ;)
I didn't either till I tried it ... :)<br>Thank you.<br>
