    Finishing

    1. Layer and baste the quilt.
    2. Stitch around all of the appliqué pieces, 1/8 ̋ inside all the wavy edges.
    3. If more quilting is needed, choose a method to secure the layers.
    4. Trim to square up the quilt, and choose a binding technique.

    * For the all-by-machine method (No Handwork Required), machine stitch using a slightly longer than normal stitch length.
    For the all-by-hand method (No Machine Required), hand stitch using running stitches with perle cotton thread.
    For the combination method (Machine and Hand), mix and match the machine and hand techniques, as desired.
