Taking a few seconds to do this will keep your quilt folded and prevent it from being all floppy. As a gift this makes it easier for wrapping or just tying a bow around. You can even stick a card in the front flap!
On this one the fold is nice because you can see and feel the minky backing. (In case you’re wondering the awesomely soft voile is from Cucire.)
Lay out your quilt face down
Fold up a little less than a third of your quilt
Fold over again and you should still see about 4″ of backing
Flip it around
Fold the 4″ backing flap up
Flip it around and fold a third of the quilt over
Fold over the other third
Lift that last fold and you will see a little pocket
Shove the other side in there
That’s it! Super easy and your quilt won’t unfold.
This fold will also work for large quilts, you just need to play with how small you want it to fold up. I’ll start with the quilt folded in half before following the steps.
