Lay the batted piece on the table with the batting or felt down. Right side of fabric should be facing up.

Lay the other piece of fabric on top with right sides together.

Pin all around the outside edges.

Starting off center at the bottom stitch on a 5/8 inch line all the way around leaving an opening in the bottom large enough you can slip your hand and forearm in for turning the quilt inside out.

Step 4: Making The Corner

To make a nice corner stitch the length of your fabric.. When you get close to the end, make sure the needle is in the fabric to hold it in place.

Lift the needle adjustment, turn your fabric making sure it is on the 5/8ths line, turn your fabric and continue to sew the nest side.

Trim fabric at an angle on each corner being careful not to cut the stitching.

Trim away excess fabric within 1/4 inch of he seam line.

Slide your arm inside the opening and pull your quilt right side out. Take a straight pin and 'pick out' the corner out to shape it square. Use this method for all corners.

Cool Deb, I wish you'd posted this a couple of years ago when my daughter was really into her baby doll!
DebH57 (author)  depotdevoid5 years ago
I have a lot of little girls who enjoy this one, it always makes the perfect gift for them. You could do the larger version for her Depot and she will have one for herself that she will always cherish.
