Binding 101 – aka “Binding Technique Needs Improvement”

Supply List

  • 2 – 12” x 18″ quilted quilt sandwiches (stitched together ~ backing, batting, top)
  • 2 – 2” binding strips* cut on crosswise grain, the circumference of “quilt” plus 12″
  • 2 – 2¼” binding strips* cut on crosswise grain, the circumference of “quilt” plus 12″
  • Sewing machine with a walking foot – built-in or attachment
  • Sewing supplies – the usual suspects
  • Small ruler with 45° angle marking
  • White chalk mechanical pencil (Bohin™ is my favorite)
  • Mechanical pencil, matching threads
  • Hot, dry iron
  • Hand sewing needle, thimble if you use one.
  • A small bottle of Elmer’s™ White School Glue, not a glue stick or regular Elmer’s, this if the only glue that works well for this technique.
  • Spray starch can with lid – Heavy duty preferred, regular okay too

 

*** Before cutting binding strips follow these steps:

a. Starch fabric that will be used for binding with heavy-duty spray starch,  Iron until dry and crisp or let dry overnight, Steam iron in the morning

b. Cut strips for binding as above
