My friend Suellen reminded me the other day that I didn’t show how I bound my quilt, so here goes…
First, I went back to my free Craftsy class, Block of the Month 2012. There is a section on binding quilts. This is a great class taught by Amy Gibson who is very good. If you need more help, sign up, it’s free.
I cut 2.5 in strips of the pretty green fabric in the quilt. Amy shows you how to figure out how long you make your binding and a way to figure out how many WOF (width of fabric) cuts you will need. Next, I sewed the strips together and folded and pressed it in half lengthwise.
Then, I sewed the binding onto the front side of the quilt. Amy gives you great instructions on turning the corners to get a good mitered corner.
Next, I used Amy’s technique to complete sewing the binding to the quilt. It worked real well. I’m sorry the next picture is so dark. It was night time when I took it.
Then, I turned the binding over and sewed it on the back.
That’s about all there is to it!!
