    I just finished 2 twin sized sandwich quilts that way. I was so afraid it was going to be a pain but in fact it was a lot easier than I thought. So, if it worked on my twin sized I'm sure it'll work on your baby blankets. In fact about 20 years ago thats how I made my first grandsons blankets. Just remember or at least it was easier for me to sew with the batting on top. You can keep an eye on things a lot better and it won't get caught in the bottom feeds. Good Luck!

    I did a twin size snowball pattern for my great grand son and then I tied it. My grandmother did that most of the time.

    When I began quilting I didn't know how to do a binding so I did all my quilts this way and for a quick and easy quilt still do....I have done up to Queen size and I put 3 inch strips a faux border all the way around the top. When I turn inside out I then do stitch in ditch within the quilt design and then around the faux border....then just hand sew my opening at the base.

    I have done this, and I have more problem getting the seam on the edge to press flat, that I'd just as soon do a binding!

    Yes & it works great. Do just like the table runners. It is a fast way of getting a small quilt done.

    I always call that "turn and topstitch" because of using it in apparel and purse construction :)

    I have done that with many quilts, all sizes and another thing I do is round the corners so I don't have to worry about points when I turn them. Eleanor Burns does it all the time on her program, or she did years ago.

    Yes, I have done this many times. This is how you
    make a comforter. You can use two layers of
    polyester batting to make it extra fluffy and warm.
    King sized comforters are easily made this way.

    If you have a serger for the edge...it lays flat...But even with reg sewing I've never had a problem with that....

    I do it for the hospital quilts sometimes. It is called the pillowcase turn.

    I call it "Birthing a Quilt" and you can do it for any size quilt.

    Yes, I have done that for baby quilts, wallhangings and throws. I quilt the top and the batting together and then sew the front and back together and turn and usually topstitch.

    The Quilt in a Day booka by Eleanor Burns uses this method but she ties or tacks the quilts after turning and Slip stitching the opening. Good Luck. Happy Quilting. Tess

    I used to make quilts that way before I learned how other people did it.
