Choose good quality 100% cotton fabric.
Choose a print cotton fabric for the backing that will blend with the top thread color.
Backing fabric must be at least three inches larger on all sides (total 6” wider and 6” longer) than the pieced top. Queen size and larger, add a couple more extra inches. If your pieced backing is larger than needed, do not trim it down and be sure that the ends are straight.
Remove selvages from backing seams. Press backing seams closed and to one side. Clip all stray threads from pieced top and back. Stray threads will show through (shadow), especially on light backgrounds.
Ensure that all seams are fully sewn. An open seam could catch the foot of the machine and cause disastrous results.
