Get 'er Bound

I am out in Hawaii teaching this week (I know, tough life, haha! ;), so I thought I would do a big round up post with all the different binding methods in one place. If you have been sitting on a finished quilt and need some binding inspiration, this should really help! Click on each link below to get to the full tutorial for that method.

Basic Binding - I do a double machine method where both sides are stitched down with the machine.

Bias Binding - This is perfect for scallop edges or any edge that is curved in places. It is also a cute way to make striped fabric “candy cane” around the edge.

Binding with Piping - This is a fun way to add a pop of color or maybe even tuck in some rickrack or other embellishment trim.

How to Bind Scalloped Edges - Here is everything you need to take those curves on with ease.

Binding Inside Angles - These are not scary, and there are real foolproof tricks for getting the best results.

Self-Flanged Binding - You’ll love this method of making a fancy looking binding in a really simple way.

Binding from Scraps - I know you all just saw this one, but the list wouldn't be complete without including it here.

I hope this is helpful or timely for someone :)

Happy Sunday, everyone!
