is this the picture of the pattern you are try to do?

I took a look at the picture and read some of the contance.
what it wants you to do is sew the quilt all in one. IF you don't want to do that. Do the top like a regular quilt would be done.
Put you fluff between and a solid backing. Then sew the border print on.
Here's a video on the method this pattern is saying quilt as you go.
I think this is what the pattern wants you to do.
If you want to do the back first lay it down put the filler on , put pieces on one at a time. Make sure you pin. I like this quilt i just might git it my self and make a quilt for my granddaughter.

quilt at you go.

In the instructions. Go to the part that says quilt.
In the diagram you will see how to put on the panel
in the middle of the quilt.
Down a little further you will see a square with triangle on it
making it a bigger square.
1. you have cut 2 squares.
2. cut 8 triangles.
3 sew each of thoses triangles on to the two squares.
4 one each square.( 4 triangle to 1 square)= two big squares.
5. in the picture it shows you fold them in to triangle.
6. One square will make two finished triangles.
7. With the two big squares cut into triangle.
8. attach them to the slanted corners provided on the patterns.
It will look like the corners of the quilt.
9. put your backing and fluff inbetween and the pieced quilte on top.
10. pin so every thing is stable and you can hand stitch decortive stitches or sew it.
Put your boarder on and your done.
Reading the instructions and looking at the pictures will make it easy.

You can use quilting sewing needle It probley will better then standard needle. Because they are made for sewing quilting. I just use standard sewing machine needle when I sewed the two quilts I made.. As for the quilting thread it is coated and a little stiffer It will work. I like to use standard thread in putting it together. I like the quilting thread for hand stitching quilts. Show us a picture when your done with.
