I told this lady that I sew for that I would make a sample baby quilt and send it to her last week! She called this morning and asked if I could send it out on Monday, so I need to get on this project. I am going to make a 36"x 36" patchwork crib quilt with simple 12 1/2 squares (12" finished). She wants the patches to alternate between this white satin fabric she sent me and white eyelet fabric and the backing to be made of the white satin as well. What I want to do is make the backing also form the borders. Am I explaining this well? How do I make the backing fabric fold over to form the borders of the quilt?

|To make the backing fold over you would leave the backing fabric at least 2" wider and longer than your front. This allows you to do a fold to the edge of the quilt front then fold over to the front and sew. If you wish a wider then leave more than 2".||
