Quilted box with French Seams!!

I really like these little fabric boxes with the french seams. So easy to do and then you don't have to tac down the leftovers on the inside.
I have now seen this on several blogs. Here is Carol Jenson's instructions from, Sew There I was.

I already had the quilting done, and had sewn the corners.
I trimmed between 1/8" and 1/4' off each corner.
It already looks nicer!!
I turned it inside out.
And stitched a seam large enough to incorporate the cut seam.
And done. I like it a lot. You can have the french seams on the inside our outside, your choice. Awesome!!!

Take Care, Happy Quilting, and keep those seam rippers sharp!! Martha
