I have enjoyed quilting for years and years. I am what I would call a hobby quilter, not professional by any means. But, when I make a quilt, I want it to be finished with a good binding to frame the hard-work put into the quilt.
Below are some easy tips on how to bind your quilt.
How to Calculate Amount of Binding
Cut Strips 2 1/2″ Wide
Lay the Strips Right Side Together at 90 Degree Angle
Sew From Upper Left to Lower Right
Fold in Half, Wrong Sides Together, Lengthwise
Attach to Quilt, Fold over Beginning Binding 1/2″ Before Sewing
Sew Through Corner, At End Fold Binding to Left Creating a Triangle, Turn and Sew Straight Down Next Side
Hand Sew Binding To Create a Mitered Corner
