It's actually quite simple to piece. All you really need is for each piece to have a cleanly cut edge ... I usually fold it up and cut a clean edge with my rotary cutter. Butt the two edges of the pieces together that you want to sew ... position them under the presser foot on your machie and set the zig zag stich for a large, and broad, stitch (I set my Pfaff on 7 and take it to the largest zig zag). Allow the materials to move through as they flow, being careful on to stretch the batting, or you'll get a seam that won't lay flat.

I also got the envelope quilt basted tonight ... this is for a local hospice ... I like the top ... I LOVE the back! (pics to come once it is quilted).
And I got 4.88 miles running in this evening ... I am still a lot slower than I want to be by the time I run my 8K in May ... but still plenty of time to improve the pace.
Hope all is well
