Pow Wow Quilts and Jersey Knit Backing

So, forgive the many pictures of the same thing, but I love how these quilts turned out.  Aren't they adorable!  Its the Pow Wow pattern by Allison Harris.  Love it.

And, something new for me, I backed it with a Jersey Knit fabric.  I was skeptical at first, but its the perfect weight for a baby blanket.  I also used 100% cotton batting.  

To do this backing, I laid out the jersey and stretched it just a tad when I taped it for basting.

Then, I laid the batting on my carpet and spread it flat - and sprayed some basting spray on it.  Next, I laid my quilt top on the batting.

After that, I used more basting spray on the jersey and laid the batting/quilt top combo on the jersey.  Then I pinned and quilted with straight lines.
