    Birthing a Quilt

    This is a quick method for finishing a quilt's edges. It can be used in combination with adding prairie points or ruffles or just as it is. A quilt backing is sewn with to the quilt top and batting with right sides together, leaving an opening on one side. The quilt is then turned and the opening slip stitched closed. Quilting can be added at this time. A great alternative for baby and art quilts.
    I am looking on line for one that is a good picture of it. There are a few videos. I think I am going to do this with my fleece leftover squares .

    sure it will work. My mom just made a twin size quilt like that for my daughter and we tied it. It's just fine. She just did a stitching around it and it helps it keep it's shape.

    I just did 2 twin size quilts that way and then tied them. It worked fine and they look really cute. I used a thick polyester batting in them so they really look fluffy. I didn't have time to take pictures but I will ask my niece to get some as they were for 2 of her kids for Christmas. I have also done baby quilts that way when I use fleece for the back.

    I've done quilts of every size this way. For many years, this was the only way that I finished quilts. This method works best if you cut and stitch accurately. Once it's flipped and the turning hole stitched up, it's important to pin carefully and fairly close together so that the quilt layers don't shift as you are quilting it.

    Yes. It works great.
