You finally finished quilting your quilt and thought you were done. Not quite yet – you still need to sew on the binding.
In this technique class, we’ll cover different ways to bind your quilt. Sue will show you the traditional binding method, which is a combination of machine and hand sewing. You’ll learn how to make bias binding, how to join fabric strips together, how to calculate the amount of fabric needed for the binding and how to get nicely mitered corners. For those of you who are not fans of hand-sewing, Sue will show you how to attach your binding totally by machine. And finally, you’ll learn how to make faux piped binding.
Kit required ($32.50) – the kit contains your quilted fabric sandwiches and pre-cut binding strips.
