A Fast Way to Finish Small Quilts

Some quilts just need a fast finish. I just learned this method from my friend Linda.

It really only works well on smaller quilts, because the batting and quilt top need to be cut the same size. Add the backing which is at least 1 1/2" larger than the front all the way around. Quilt.

Cut the backing exactly 1" larger than the front.

Press the back in half.

Fold the quilt diagonally, and place a ruler perpendicular to the folded edge. Draw a line from the fold down 3/4".

Stitch on the line, back stitch at both ends. Trim.

Tuck the edges in and top stitch. The corner is perfect every time!
