…taught different binding techniques at the Holliston Senior Center.
Binding #1 Single fold binding. Cut binding strip 1 3/8″ wide. Sew on with 1/4″ foot on machine. I use this binding technique for placemats to prevent the ends from curling up when placing into a drawer.
Binding #2 bias strip. I use this 1 3/8″ bias binding strip for placemats with curved edges. Do not pull on binding strip when sewing it on. Simply feed the strip into the foot and it will stretch around to the back and ease in where needed.
Binding #3 miniature cotton cording. I use a zipper foot to cover the cord. I also use the zipper foot to attach the cording to the quilt. Clip the edges to curve around the corners. Add a binding strip to cover the stitching from the covered cording (piping).
There are many ways to finish your quilt. I will continue to show more ways to finish quilts at our next Holliston Senior Center quilting class.
Can you say, “FUN!”
