I then spent a large amount of time on Sunday evening pinning the three layers together. The 3 layers are the topper, polyester batting and the back fabric. I like to do a safety pin basting on my small quilts. All I can say is that I must be getting old because my hands actually hurt on Monday after putting in the 100+ safety pins. And I even used the curved pins that are supposed to be more ergonomical and easier to put in place.
For my backing fabric I choose something out of my stash. It is a cotton dyed fabric. It gives it a little bit of interest.

Next to be done is the actual quilting part, maybe I will start on that tonight.
