    I'm not sure how to do this. Are you piecing front and back together and turning? It sound good if it works.

    yes, once you turn it right side out, quilt it, stitch close to edge, all the way around including the turned edge, it should do fine.

    I tried a quillow once and it was skewed. I'm sure my yardage was off grain.

    Do you stitch the outer edge after turning and THEN quilt the rest or the other way around...
    quilt center, and then stitch the outer edge?
    Or does it even matter?

    That is how I did mine. It worked fine. Some call it birthing a quilt. Don't know why.
