 General instructions for sandwiching, turning and quilting/tying baby quilts: Lay batting on a flat surface and smooth.  Place flannel-backing fabric over batting, soft (right) side up, and smooth.  Place quilt top, right side down, on top of flannel and smooth. Pin around edges then machine stitch a generous around outside of quilt top, leaving about a 10 opening to turn the quilt.  Trim backing and batting. Through the opening, turn the quilt sandwich so right side of the quilt top is facing out.  Whipstitch or machine stitch the opening closed.  Pin sandwich as necessary then machine quilt from edge of quilt. Machine quilt or tie such that quilting lines or ties are no more than 4" apart.
