Welcome back! After talking about the 7 essential tips for binding a quilt by machine, today’s the day I share with you all the fun stuff I learned about stitching a quilt binding to the front of a quilt.

THE formula for calculating the necessary yardage for binding your quilt from Quilt Social


Welcome back! I’ve got a super week lined up for you with one of our favorite things to do – putting the binding on a quilt!

I used to hate putting on a binding. I know that others love it because it means the quilt is almost complete, but it used to be such a hassle. If I were to calculate the inches (that could easily add up to miles?) of binding that I’ve put on, well after a while, it just doesn’t seem all that bad.
