Binding

Do you love or loath binding?
Do you machine bind or hand stitch it?

I machine bind and I LOVE this method I only learned last year. That end bit in my hand tucks right into the pre-trimmed angled start of my binding!  It's sooo neat and easy :)


The other thing I like to do is go around the quilt again with a second row of stitching once the binding is attached. It makes a nice flat edge of the quilt which makes it easier to fold the binding over and do the final stitching line that keeps it all in place.

  1. I'll try this double-line trick! Thanks!
    I prefer to hand stitch the back. I just cannot make a good job if only using the sewing machine. :-)
