Binding your quilt is a great feeling- it means you’re almost done! It’s a simple process that gives your project the perfect, finished edge. But if you’ve never done it, binding can look a little tricky. How do you get those perfect corners? Where do all the raw edges go? If you’re brand new to binding, this post is for you! I’ve collected a few tutorials to show you how it’s done.
First off is a little image I made to help me remember the steps (if you don’t bind a quilt for a while, it’s easy to forget which way to fold and turn things!) I have the image saved to my computer so I can pull it up easily when I need it- feel free to do the same!
But diagrams aren’t always as easy to follow as a video. Here’s a great one by Nancy Zemen that demonstrates this same method so you can see it in action.
The tools she used aren’t all necessary, but they’re nice to have on hand if you plan on doing a lot of quilting. Here are some quick links so you can find them easily:
Hopefully this helps you bind your quilt with ease! If you have any questions, send ’em my way 🙂
