Broken Panes Quilt Along - Quilting Prep

It's time to get our Broken Panes Quilt Along quilt tops prepped for quilting.  Head over to Jen @ Patterns by Jen to get the pattern and more details about the QAL.

Here's my quilt top if you missed last week's blog post.  It finishes around 50-inch squares because I decided not to add the borders.

Jen has a great blog post on getting your quilt top prepped.  Pop over to Jen's blog to get some helpful hints, whether you are going to be quiting on your domestic machine or sending it to a longarmer.

My backing is pieced -- the majority of it is the teal fabric on the right.

I'll be using the sashing fabric for my binding.

I have a Pfaff mounted on a frame.  I generally add an extra four inches on all four sides for the batting and backing so I can clip them into place.  Sometimes I "cheat" and use less if I don't have enough fabric...don't tell the quilt police.  😊

Stop by next week to see what quilting motif I used.  I'll also be sharing a tutorial on machine binding in the coming weeks.
