This is one of my most used Accuquilt dies. I use it to make nearly all of my binding.
After cutting my strips, I stitch them end to end and press the seam open.
This is my pressing setup for binding. As I press it, it falls into the bowl.
I love a good bowl of binding! I usually make extra to have on hand for small quilts.
Here’s where I place the bowl when I start stitching it to the quilt.
I leave a bit of a tail at the beginning and end.
I fold back these tails and give it a press to mark where they meet. That will be my seam line.
I match the creases and stitch them together on the pressed line, trimming away the excess.
I fingerpress the seam open and then finishing attaching the binding.
Now it’s all ready for hand stitching!
And no, I have not finished quilting this quilt. But since I started quilting around the outside and work toward the middle, I can bind as soon as the outside edge of the quilt is quilted.
Have a great day!
