|Look at me- I am aligned perfectly!|
I laid the first panel of the backing fabric face up on a table and then I took the second panel, making sure the pattern was going in the right direction, I began to align the motifs where I wanted them to join. I used an iron to press the top panel right sides together with the bottom panel as I moved along the length of the fabric continually aligning the motifs. I used a fabric glue stick to hold the two panels together along the matched motifs. Once everything was aligned and glued, and making sure to not shift anything, I carefully pinned the two panels together to hold them securely for sewing. One of the benefits that I found from using this method was that the press line also became the perfect sewing line.
