Rounded Quilt Corners

A lap quilt made with scrap strips of fabric with round corners. This technique of making round corners can be used on many styles of quilts.


After piecing the quilt center, I made a 4 inch border by sewing together many small coordinating fabrics. Stitch the border to the quilt using a quarter inch seam allowance. Approximately 2 inches before getting to the corner begin folding and gathering the fabric while sewing. This will form a circular corner. Continue sewing around the entire quilt, folding and gathering at each corner. Next lay the quilt on top of the chosen backing. Cut around the quilt leaving a 1 inch border. Fold the backing over the quilt top and secure by slip-stitching the entire border.
