I've been making table runners that are quilt-as-you-go. I layer the backing and the batting and THEN sew the pieces to the batting on top. I am not sewing very much directly to the batting (just a stitch or two), as I have the pieces of fabric between the batting and the presser foot, and the backing fabric between the feed dogs and the batting.
Are your directions to sew the fabric pieces to the batting, and THEN to back it??
Oh, yeah - and I don't use my 1/4" foot - I use the walking foot and use the edge of it to line up for the 1/4".
