Title: "Pillowcase style"
Post by: quiltermarynel on February 06, 2008, 03:45:36 PM

of us do not care for binding, even though we know how. For some (non
heirloom) quilts, an alternative is 'pillowcase style' finishing. This
is not as durable as standard binding, but is my prefered method for
kid quilts, as they get dragged around and treated roughly anyway.

The sandwich stage one: lay out batting, backing facing up, top facing down. Pin along the edges only.

Sew the edges, leaving a gap for turning right side out. I generally curve my corners, although one need not.

Turn right side out. At this point I hand sew the gap, then
sew 1/2" in from the edge all the way around. (IF you do these 2 in
the other order, you get a messy edge.) This forms a nice edging. If
you are unsure of yourself, go to The sandwich stage two first.

The sandwich stage two: Pin the rest of the quilt.

Quilt it.

Label the quilt and you are done.
