|Adding backing strips with edges ironed under over batting, which|
has been whip stitched to block seam allowances
I have to admit I'm a bit behind on my weekly 5x7's, but putting together the Salsa quilt, as well as some other projects, have taken priority for me right now. I'll be getting back to my 5 x 7's soon enough.

Then, I turned it over and carefully cut pieces of batting to fit right between the blocks seam allowances, so that the batting would be consistently uniform across the quilt. I chose to do the vertical pieces between the blocks, then the long horizontal strips, and afterwards the vertical borders.

While this might not be the most expedient (or fast) method, I think the outcome will be quite nice. Next step is going to be freemotion quilting the sashing/borders!
