I said yesterday that I would share more about the binding technique I used on this little quilt. I really want to do most of my binding by machine from now on to save my hands. I was pleased with how this method turned out.
I started by cutting strips 1 3/4” wide and joining the end to end. This is single fold binding. I machine stitched my binding to the front of my quilt as usual, using a 1/4” seam allowance.
Then I pressed the binding fabric away from the quilt. Turn the quilt over and press the binding, turning under the seam allowance as you go. I have never used these clips before, but they worked really well for this.
I flipped the quilt over again, and stitched in the ditch as shown below.
This is how the back looks.
I learned about these clips from Jo at Jo’s Country Junction.
They are available through Amazon.
Hope this helps!
