  1. I've done practice work on several pieces with only one width of fabric, which has loaded easily. Now I am loading a "double wide" -- that is a backing sewn with two widths of cloth. The fabric is good quality, new 100% quilting cotton. I washed and ironed the fabric first, ripped the selvages and sewed them together so that they run the top to bottom (length) of the quilt. When I pin these on my zippers, one side of the backing is perfect, flat and smooth. The other sags like a wet dishcloth. No amount of fiddling has produced a nice, even back. What should I do? I thought perhaps I should have taken the cloth in thirds so that the seams would run cross-wise the quilt. (I have a new MIlllenium machine.) Any advice would be most helpful -- I've been sifting through the forums but haven't seen this topic (as yet.) Thanks. Lark
