Stuck In A Bind? Not Anymore! 6 Simple Steps To Make Binding Easy

 

This tutorial is exciting because we are learning 6 easy steps for binding our quilts! Check them out and don’t forget to review the tutorial video.

 

1. The ladies at Heirloom Creations start us off by cutting our binding. You will want to cut it between 2 and 1/4 or 2 and 1/2 inch srips using a rotary cutter. Remember to always cut away from your body to prevent injury.

2. Once your strips are cut, it’s time for them to be sewn together. You will want to place one strip of binding onto another, right sides facing each other so that they are perpendicular to each other. The stitch we will be using is a diagonal stitch, going from corner to corner. Repeat this step until you have all of your binding edges sewn.

3. When you have your edges sewn, trim the remaining edges off using scissors or a rotary cutter. When cutting, make sure that you cut 1/4 inch away from the seam. Once you’ve made your cuts, find the end of the binding and fold the fabric, wrong sides together and then press. When approaching a seam, press it out as well so that it folds neatly within your binding.

4. Now that we have our binding together, its time to add to our quilt. Using a walking foot is the best tool for adding binding. Match the raw edges of your binding to the raw edges of your quilt. Fold your binding into a triangle, going away from your quilt, forming a pocket. This pocket will come in handy once we have sewn all of our binding on. Using a 1/4 inch seam allowance, begin your sewing. When you approach a corner, stop a 1/4 inch away from the end of your quilt. Do a reverse stitch to secure your binding and then remove it completely from your machine. Flip the binding over so that we can begin the mitered corner. Finger press and continue binding.

5. Once you have come to the pocket that we mentioned earlier, tuck the remaining bnding into it, and sew it closed! Now press your fabric going away from the quilt.

6. When you get to the corners, fold them over and do the mitered edges one more time. And there you have it! Simple binding in 6 step-by-step directions!

    Great tutorial, BUT the division is reversed. The total number of inches of binding needed, plus the extra 15″ should be divided by 40, not the other way around! From a quilting math teacher!!!

    This is the way I was taught to do bindings over 30 years ago, just recently I’ve changed to a method that gives a nicer, neater finish than this method as explained by Jenny from the Missourie Star Quilt Company

    Liz taught me that when she showed us gals how to quilt a long while back, I often make binding out o my left over strips and just keep it on hand….the multicolored ones are quite effective..I have bound some of the blanked kits instead of tying them,they look pretty good.

I don’t like quilts on my bed (prefer blankets) but I LOVE making them! Working on a Pinwheel right now in patriotic fabric…setting it up with blue strips with red squares in each corner of the blocks. It’s looking really beautiful! All done by hand too!

I’ve made everything from wedding dresses to luggage to car interiors. After losing my mother I lost the love for sewing. But I have seen some incredible pieces lately.

    I am kind of like you Jeannine Ogden I quilt for use. .I like to make my Christmas gifts so I start early and try to complete more than 1per month. I quilt smaller projects like table runners and then sew napkins from same fabric. Maybe a wall hanging. I have a quilt my mother made .it getting a bit tattered. So i’m doing a wall hanging fir each of my daughters and me. Its a bow tie pattern. I only h have 1 sewing daughter and you can guess what you made fir me whileb I was . Recovering from a sttoke. Yep a beautiful lap quilt with bible verses describing the qualities
    Joy- helpfulness -love – forgiveness. I was overjoyed to have. it.
    Machine quilting makes it go so much faster .
    I have tsyght my daughter- in-law the basics and shevrealky has an eye for color.
    I love to use recycled jeans.opening seams and pockets. The pattern is one I copied from the tiles in our murses bathroom floor. 2×3 2×6 6×6 block from jeans I colkect from all the family. Grandparents , parents. Aunts, uncles, I use all denim blues just moving shades around until I like the look. . Thet arec easy to repair too. Am replaceing a binding and a few worn patches on one now so I know they are used .I can get wound up about quilting.

    I’m so glad you showed how to have the extra batting at the edge. I didn’t know how and when to have this extra bit. It makes so much sense. Susan Cleveland said having the extra batting extends the life of your binding.

    I cut my strips 3″ and sew on front and flip to back and stitch.
    I figure if I go to the trouble of putting on a binding I want to be able o see it on the finished product. Only for contest , do I use 2 1/2″ strips

  193. Every “expert” has their opinion. I agree with “it is your quilt”. Do it your way and you can always change it next time if you do not like it.
