I can haz sandwich?

The backing taped to the floor, batting and top rolled out on top.
I never taped the backing until I saw Elisabeth Hartman's tute and now I do it every time I need to make a quiltsandwich. It is so much easier to remove all the wrinkles this way!

The completed sandwich. Pinned and ready to be quilted. It took 80 pins which seems like a lot but I rather put in the extra effort now instead of having a nasty crease in the backing later.

I'm curious as to how the batting will hold up in wear and washing. It is 100% wool which will hopefully make for a warm and soft quilt. I don't think it will crinkle as much as a completely cotton quilt does though...
