Machine Sewn Nifty Quilt Binding. Unique & Fast Quilt Binding.

SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH THE TUTORIAL

This is like the old saying, Necessity is the Mother of invention.

You can tell by watching this Sara doesn’t like adding bindings to quilts.

This is inventive creativity at its best.  Human beings are amazing creatures!

How Sara came up with this wild and crazy way to add a quick quilt binding is proof of how unique each of us are!

This may make you smile! or run away in a with a why in the world would I do something like that laughing attitude.

Either way it will make you think, and probably put a smile on your face even if you don’t want a smile on your face.

Thank YOU SARA! from Heirloom Creations for sharing how you add a binding to a quilt.

    I think you would want to change your bobbin thread from the wash-away before sewing the binding onto the quilt.

    I am physically challenged when I hand stitch so your method is very welcome. I can’t wait to give it a go! Thank you for breaking down the information about how the sewing feet and threads are used. Well presented.

  33. Cathi Audas Jamison

    Mar 12. 2016

    Rosemary Sanker Neiss I will. Kathy Donnelly Sawyer has been a Pfaff teacher and is in my quilt guild. Pfaff has an “offset” foot that we use. Cut the binding 2-1/4″, press in half; attach to BACKSIDE of quilt with 1/4″ seam allowance, using your 1/4″ foot. Wrap to front side. Put OFFSET foot on. Make sure you have your zigzag throat plate in place. Move your foot about 5 movements to the left so the needle catches close to the binding edge. The offset foot rides right along the left side of your binding, yielding a perfectly straight stitch. If you want to know more about the method, let me know, or better yet Kathy Sawyer, to talk you thru her wonderful way of turning corners and finishing the binding.

    I wonder how all of that washes. I knit with that yarn a lot and it shrinks quite a bit when it is washed, maybe all the stitching would prevent that. I also wonder it you are just adding bulk in your corners.

  130. I wouldn’t think it shrinking would make a difference since it isn’t anchored down with stitches. The bobbin thread washes away so the yarn is just floating in the edge of your binding
