Instructions for preparing quilts for

Hearts and Hands

These are the three quilt sizes:
baby: 45 x 45
lap: 45 x 60
twin 60 x 85

1. Cut top fabric, bottom fabric, and batting to twin, lap or baby size. The quilt in my example is baby-sized, so both fabrics and batting are cut to 45"x 45".

2. Layer the fabric in this order: bottom layer, face up, top layer, face down. (These two layers ae now right sides together.) Finally, cotton batting goes on top. The corner has been turned down so you can see the order and direction fabric will face.

3. Pin the three layers together, and stitch with cotton side up, making sure you catch all three layers. I used a 1/2" seam to make it easier. Leave a 6"-10" section unsewn so that you can turn the quilt right side out.

4. Trim corners and turn quilt right side out.

5. Sew opening closed by hand or by machine.

6. Your quilt is now "fit to be tied"!
