11. Sew along the seams through the fabric and wadding to secure it all together ( You tube instructions http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqiUQFXV-vI)
12. Sew on Edging Fabric to complete the quilt(if you are unsure how to do this there are many videos on You Tube with simple Instructions, here is one I used: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pq2Q3F17lv0 )

Always Damp press between each stage of making your quilt
