Binding Tutorial Roundup

Binding can be tricky to get right but that’s only true until you learn a way that makes sense for you.

Here’s the post-it note that is stuck to the wall just behind my sewing machine.

It helps me to sew my binding pieces together alternating right side up so that I have one continuous piece of binding when I’m finished. Before this post-it note existed, I’d spent lots of time unpicking stitches.

This is the blog post that made the most sense to me when I first learned to make binding on my own. (And where my post-it drawing came from.) Thank you, Allison from Cluck Cluck Sew!

Here are some great options to try to find your favorite:

This binding really frames a quilt in a beautiful way, Lorna from sewfreshquilts

Find the one that makes the most sense to you and use it to finish your next few quilts. Once you’ve used it a few times, it’ll stick, I’m sure of it. If not, get yourself a post-it note ;)

Love, Tamara
