Design notes

Take to the ironing board.  Press on front side of quilt.  I don't press on batting side, in case it melts.  Open up layers so right sides of top are showing on front and right sides of backing are showing on the back.  Batting will be in the center.  Press.  The seam will be lumpy.  It doesn't bother me but you can trim out some backing from the seam allowances if you like.

Center, right side sections joined together.

Folded back top and batting to spray wrong side of backing with basting spray.  Folded batting down on sprayed backing.  Sprayed batting, folded top onto batting.

Side section spray basted, ready for quilting

After side section was quilted, joined other side section using above method.

Center, side sections quilted.  Note top/bottom borders are already attached.  Next step, attach side borders.
