Tag Archives: Binding a quilt

The Quilt is Finished!

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:

  1. Cut the binding strips 2″ wide rather than 2.5″.
  2. 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.

I’ve cut the binding strips for this quilt. I cut two inch strips (rather than 2.5) because I’m not sure if I have enough fabric.

Yesterday I went and saw West Side Story – it was fantastic. I do like a good musical.
