STEP 2.  QUILT

Quilt the Panel pieces, I quilted mine with a diamond pattern. Fold over the short edges on the Frame Casing and stitch down. Fold the Frame Casing in half on the long sides and stitch together using an 1/8” seam from the edge.

STEP 3. SEW OUTER

Place Panel pieces right sides together and sew the bottom three sides, leaving the top open, using a ¼” seam allowance; this will have you sewing right up against the batting edge.

STEP 4. SEW LINING

Place Lining pieces right sides together and sew down each long side, and across the bottom leaving a “turning hole” in the middle of this seam. Take one of the Frame Casing
pieces and tuck it into the top of the lining pouch and tack stitch it to the side; repeat with the other side.

STEP 5. FINISH THE POUCH

Turn the Panel pouch right sides out and push out the corners. Tuck this unit into the pouch created by the Lining and Frame Casing pieces, lining up the tops of everything and pinning well. Sew around the top using a 1/4” seam allowance. Pull everything through the hole left in the bottom of the Lining from Step Four, stitch the hole closed and tuck the Lining into the Panel pouch. Top stitch an 1/8” under the Frame Casing.
