1. Layer quilt top, batting, and backing; baste.
2. Quilt as desired. If using a knife-edge self-binding as was done on the featured quilt, quilt no closer to the edges than 1/2".
3. Trim backing and batting even with quilt top edges, then carefully trim batting another 1/4". Turn under quilt top and backing edges 1/4", clipping seam allowances at inner points of backing; press. Align folded edges, enclosing batting; pin together. Use tiny hand stitches to join quilt top and backing along all edges.
