I finished the quilt!
In the end I machined sewed (not very well) the binding to the back of the quilt. It certainly saved time and I will definitely do it again. However, I need to keep in mind a few things:
- Cut the binding strips 2″ wide rather than 2.5″.
- Once I’ve attached the binding to the front iron it away from the front.
This should mean that when I stitch in the ditch on the front (made by attaching the binding) I should just catch the binding at the back.
