I want to talk today about binding – do you think it is boring? Not anymore!
Do you pay attention to the binding you add on your quilts ? For years I considered it just a necessary thing. The raw edges of the quilt have to be hidden so adding binding is a must.
Usually I make it from one of the fabrics used in the quilt and I always choose the fabric I less like. If I have an ugly fabric then I use it for binding.
But a few months ago I took the time to make a pieced binding and now I see the binding with different eyes.
I like to make it from strips of the same length- it is easy to calculate the number of pieces needed.
- Too wide binding doesn’t look good.
- Always use walking foot when adding the binding.
Have fun making binding for your new quilts!
