What’s a Quilt Sandwich?
A quilt sandwich is what quilters call the three layers of a quilt. The 'sandwich' consists of the quilt top, the batting and the backing.
The quilt “sandwich” consists of backing, batting, and the quilt top. First, you’ll cut the backing 4” to 6” longer and wider than the quilt top.
If you’re planning to quilt the project yourself, you’ll baste the layers together using thread or safety pins. Use LARGE stitches (or safety pins) anywhere from 4 to 6 inches apart.
