Now that the summer festivities are winding down and I have learned to take closeups with my new camera ,I am ready to share with you how I mount my work. If you need more info, just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
1. Press and trim piece (quilt) including the extra inches needed to wrap around the sides of the wood (the depth of the wood plus ½ inch).
2. Lay frame on top of right side of the piece and mark the four corners with pins.
3. Flip piece to wrong side, mark where the pins came through on the wrong side of the piece with a fabric marker or a pencil.
4. Draw a line from left to right going through the dots at the top.
5. Repeat this step for the other dots.
6. Stitch the corner line with a very small stitch for strength.
7. Mark a ¼ inch seam inside each corner and cut it away. Also cut away the batting and the backing fabric to the stitching line to eliminate the bulk.
8. Mark the depth of the wood from each dot at the corners
Put onto frame making sure that the corners are aligned.
11. Starting in the center of opposite sides, staple it down, pulling it tight each time. Follow diagrams for stapling order. Staple down to the very end. Trim away any extra fabric.
