Video: How to Sew Quilt Binding 100% by Machine from Craftcore

This tutorial will show you the method that I use to sew my quilt binding in place – 100% sewn with sewing machine stitches.  I rarely hand sew, only when it’s absolutely necessary.  I’m someone who wishes she was a neater stitcher. However, I haven’t been able to force myself to practice more.  If I had to hand-sew my quilt binding in place, I think my work-in-progress pile would be even worse than it is now!  Meep!

Typically, the binding is sewn in place from one side, then folded over to the other side and hand sewn in ...

While I work... from Pieced Brain

I am finishing a secret project using Riley Blake Designs Christmas fabrics. The binding is taking hours to complete and I am doing so while listening to music. The binding phase of any project is, to me, like approaching the finish line on a race. Not because I have been racing to finish it (although it does happen sometimes), but because the quilt is practically done and it will be time to celebrate another finish. Next, usually, is the label or sometimes the hanging sleeve as it will be the case with this one.

This is how I bind - the ...

Binding a Modern Quilt from Carol Lyles Shaw

When I’m ready to attach the binding, I feel great.  It means that the project is done and the quilt is ready to be used or shared with others.  Hand sewing the binding down on the back of the quilt is a very relaxing process for me.  I don’t do a lot of handwork, so I enjoy some time for a bit of slow stitching in front of the TV.  And I love these small Wonder Clips.  They hold all the layers so securely and I don’t have to worry about stabbing myself on pins.

Double Magic Binding from Quilt Doodle Doodles

While out doing my trunk show at different quilt groups this summer, I noticed that everyone was drawn to my machine binding on a few of my quilts. They all had my decorative binding on them. It's what I call my Double Magic Binding. I discovered the technique a few years ago, it's a fun way to bind a quilt.  I can't take credit for coming up with the idea, there are several tutorials out there describing the same or similar process... but I want to share this wonderful technique with you again. It's a nifty ...

Binding the Supernova Quilt from Curlicue Creations

 Sorry, Supernova quilt.  Your time to fly free is over.  

 As I showed in my last post, I quilted the Supernova quilt with an allover loopy meander.  It was easy, stress free quilting for me.  Sometimes I need that.

This is the bottom edge of the quilt.  Yee-ha!  It's always exciting to make it to the end.

 
 Here is the quilt, rolling off the quilting frame and draped over the ironing board.

 All loose thread ends were woven into the quilt.


 I usually cut my binding from fabric that matches the outer border of the quilt.  But I went ...

Workshop Wednesday: Joining the Ends of Your Binding from McCall's Quilting

I think it’s safe to say there are two kinds of quilters in the world when it comes time to join the loose ends of a binding strip: those who measure and those who don’t.

In a previous Workshop Wednesday blog post I discussed different techniques for binding a quilt. This final part of making a quilt alone contains a few different steps that require more measuring, cutting and careful stitching right at the point when many of us are ready to just be done working on the darn thing already.

So once you’ve finished piecing together your quilt top with ...
