Watch The Easy Way To Do Wide Binding For Our Quilts

 

For this wide binding it’s all machine stitched. Simple and fast way to extend the size of a quilt.

Also works great for lap and baby quilts. This unique method gives baby quilts a unique look and feel. To make this quilt fast and simply we can use any print.

The width of the binding is really up to you and this allows you to size up a quilt easily to fit the needs. How we attach the binding with your machine is unique, but very simple.

The wide binding method uses the quilts batting as part of the binding.

It’s a different technique and once you learn how to use it may replace the need add borders in some quilts. It reminds us of the baby blankets with the silky ribbon edges.

The back is basted (spray basting recommended) to a larger piece of batting that is at least 2 inches larger than the finished binding width. You’ll trim the batting to the size you’ll want your width to be.

A wide folded piece of batting is sew to the edge of the backing. Fold the binding over the batting to form the binding.

The front of the quilt is now placed on the backing and slipped between the binding and batting to make your quilt sandwich.

    Me too, self binding is far easier I think. I’ll have to try this way again but I haven’t had any luck with it so far.

    Why would a quilter put on a wide binding! That went out in the 60’s! Binding has the worse wear in a quilt. Boggles this 50+ year quilting!

    Mostly for baby quilts babies love silk binding that’s the only time I do it and that’s because that’s how it comes I don’t think it looks bad I do it in fleece small little square with big silk binding for baby but for a big quilt that might not look good I’ve never seen it done our generation of quilters looks up to quilters like you maybe it’s coming back lol

    I had a pediatric nurse in one of my quilt classes. I was teaching a bunny block. I gave different options if dressing the bunny up, and mentioned if for a baby to not use ribbon. She mention that anything with a looser weave, like the satin blanket bindings could choke a baby as they could suck on it. Since I always taught start to finish quilt projects. And was big into competition I always did the proper binding. It just showcases a quilt.

    When I was a beginning quilter if my backing or quilt top wasn’t quite square I would cover the problem with a wide binding. Better than chopping off a hunk of the quilt.

    So I’m thinking if you quilt the blanket, just not all the way to edge. I like the look of this big binding. Nice for applique wall hangings.
