Pattern matching prints for quilt backing

This was my first attempt to align fabric prints for a quilt backing.

I used a method I found onĀ Aqua Paisley Studio.

First you’ve got to find where the repeats are and where you to align the two pieces of fabric. I don’t have a photo of that.

Second, fold fabric one-inch and press:

Third, apply glue to the bottom of the one-inch fold, then align:

Fourth, flatten the fabric out and sew on the seam where you pressed it:

Fifth, trim to one-quarter inch then press to one side:

Not bad for my first attempt:
