All Wound Up.
This one is being posted out-of-order. I actually did these steps BEFORE I could quilt the rings.
It's just such a wonderfully colorful and scrappy quilt. Here I am winding it onto the basting boards. This quilt was enveloped, so it doesn't need a traditional binding.
I wanted to set out the proper order of the layers for enveloping a quilt, because it's easy to get it wrong (as me how I know, and how I spent a perfectly good afternoon un-sewing ...)
Layer 1 (bottom layer) : Batting - Free-floating
Layer 2 (middle layer) : Backing - Right side up
Layer 3 (top layer) : Quilt Top - Right-side down
In other words, the top and backing are right sides together, on top of the batting.
Baste all 3 layers.
Sew the edges, leaving an opening to turn it inside out.
Trim the edges so they are all even.
Turn it inside out.
Stitch the turning opening shut
Top-stitch the edges to reinforce the enveloped binding.
Baste and Quilt as desired.
