Just to clarify, when you layer the page in readiness for hand quilting, there are just the two layers (the PAGE and the WADDING). Baste the page to the centre of the wadding/batting. I use a spray glue baste but you can pin or tack the two layers together if you prefer. At this stage, the wadding will be slightly larger than the journal page, that is correct. Then, hand quilt as desired.
