    Can anyone tell me what "Pillowcase the Quilt" before binding means? I've never heard of this before. Thank you. Laura

    I think that means you sew it together right sides in and then flip out and bind down the edges.

    I don't know, but i'm guessing to turn it in side out like a pillowcase insted of the regular binding method. sew up the seams, leave an opening, then turn inside out

    Right sides together, with batting on either "wrong" side, sew the edges but leave a hole to turn the quilt right side out.

    Thank you all for your quick responses. I quilt this way, but as you can see, never heard this term before.

    Thanks again, happy quilting, Laura
