Modern Quilts, Home Decor, and Handcrafted Clothing



I’ve probably mentioned before that making binding is my least favorite part of the quilt process. But boy is it pretty all made up. I do try to think about the fact that if I am making binding, it means I will be finishing up another quilt in the next day or two. And that makes me happy.

    Making binding is one of my favorite parts of quilting & I love hand sewing it on at the end.

    I have to say I love binding too… First I get to finally take my quilt into the living room and secondly I really enjoy seeing it all come together. Endless hours admiring my own work ;)

    This is beautiful binding. I used to have a binding “block” but then I remember, like you, that it means the end is close!

      Faith says:

      It really depends on the size of the quilt…and how much fabric I have to use. :) But general I cut strips that are somewhere between 2.5″ and 3.25″. For this binding, I cut 3″ strips.

    Wow, I am in the minority! I don’t mind hand sewing the back…it means I can catch up on my DVR shows and not feel too guilting about sitting around. :)

    I am with you Faith. I have two quilts ready for binding and I keep putting it off. But that BINDING is beautiful.
    Can’t wait to see the finish.

    I love binding too, like some of the other commenters. I know I can do that really well, but its the machine quilting I get nervous about. Can’t wait to see it!

    That’s what I’ve been doing tonight as well–just finished attaching it and now ready to hand stitch. It’s just a pillow though, so it will go quickly!
