Machine Bindng

Mr. Wonderful are on our way to see his mom today! Before I left, I was able to finish this quilt. For time’s sake, I did all the binding by machine. I started by stitching thebibding to the back of the quilt and then pressing the binding away from the quilt.

I never use pins or clips when I bind. I just roll the binding to the front side far enough to just cover the stitch line and top stitch close to the edge.

Have a great day!

  1. Beautiful. That is the way I do my binding also. Did you notice what looks like a couple of skipped stitches in the last photo? I have that problem sometimes and never notice it until I am ready to gift the quilt. 😦

  2. Do you cut your bindings at 2 1/2″ or 2 1/4″? It looks like you take a full 1/4″ and also do a stay stitching to hold it in place when doing the binding. I do all my binding with a 2″ strip, but the stay stitching looks like that would be very helpful in sewing the 1/4″…..Of course, I may still be sleeping!
    Nice work

    I like this! Good pictures too to see how you did it. I’ve tried it once but sewed the binding to the front first and then stitched it from the back. I wasn’t happy with the result. I’ll have to try your way next time. Thanks. Hugs,

    I’m in love with your backing. Do you mind sharing the designer and print name?

    Did you make the binding a little wider to accommodate the foldover? How did you handle the corners on the first go-round?

    That’s a wonderful color for the binding on that quilt.

    You don’t mention whether you use a walking foot or not.q

  8. That’s how I bind! But I do use one pin once I pull the binding to the front. About five inches down, and then re-position when I reach it. So much faster than hand sewing.
