I had 3 sections plus my main body-the largest portion of my quilt finally quilted. Now to get them put together.
I exposed the back fabric and trimmed away the batting..
Make sure your stippling (quilting stitch) is removed or not sewn too close to the edge. I did have to rip some stitches (stippling) out so that I could get a good fold so my seam was 1 inch wide on the back fabric.
Take out the safety pins, lay quilt front side up and with scissors trim the overlapping batting and fabric away. Do NOT use a rotary cutter!! It’s too easy to cut thru the backing fabric!! Yes it will be jagged and rough, but the strip will cover a 1000 sins.
Sew Your Strip to one side with folds open.. I used 2.5 strips that were prepared for binding strips. First,Steam press/iron your strips in half, then open and iron the edges to the center fold. The crease makes a nice, neat line to follow when sewing it to quilt.
