Putting it all together

  • Layer the quilted front and the inside rectangle (right sides together) aligning all the outside edges. Using an even-feed or walking foot, stitch the layers together with a ¼” seam, leaving a 2″ opening for turning on one side. You can round the corners a little if you like.

 

Corners can be slightly rounded for a nicer finish.
