Step 4: Making the Blanket (or Quilt Part)

Your going to sew the blanket just like the pillow pocket, but on a larger scale.
Place your fabrics right sides together and sew using a 1/4' seam allowance, leaving an opening at the end to turn.
Next, turn and topstitch blanket all the way around. (This part is different from the pillow pocket).
<p>I am very new to sewing I just sewed my third easy quilt and by that I mean I tie the layers together with yarn, so with the blanket and pillow you put the sides you want to see together and sew them? and then turn them inside out? I know it might be obvious but as i said im very new and when you say topstictch is that just a regular stitch? and you put no batting in your quilts? and if you did use batting how do you get it into the layers of the blanket if its sewn on three ends and how do you finish the edge of the opening? Fold both edges in and sew?</p>
<p>Hi Terry In step 4 you put the right (good) sides together of the blanket part of the fabric, stitch all around leaving an opening to turn the blanket right sides out (clipping the corners first before turning). Once turned right side out top stitch with regular straight stitch around the whole edge 1/4 to 1/2 inch (she doesn't say). This will also close up the opening you left for turning the blanket right side out. You don't put any batting in this blanket. Good luck and have fun sewing.</p>

<p>made these years ago, when my kids were small (they are in their 20's now!) I recently was looking thru pictures and saw one I had made...got my brain rolling! I NEED to make these again!</p>
<p>Is it possible to make a quillow with an actual pillow inside? If so, how much does the pattern change and what size does the pillow need to be? I want it for traveling, but do not want to lose the pillow when I unfold it.</p>
Nice idea! I always like to keep a rug in the car, and a cushion looks neat as well as being practical:)
