There are so many ways to bind a quilt, SO many! For me, my go-to method for binding my quilts is all by machine. It's so similar to Allison of Cluck Cluck Sew's steps for machine binding, that I always refer folks who ask about my method or for instructions to her wonderful tutorial. It's fast, I trust that it's secure and, perhaps most importantly, it's neat when viewed both from the front and the back! I've finished all of the quilts I've made this past year this way and I can see myself improving with each finished quilt!
This sewing machine foot or extension table trick makes keeping the binding all rolled up and out of the way easy. I use it each time I bind!
I'm also a huge fan of using print fabric for my binding! Sometimes choosing a pretty solid to frame the quilt works best, but I usually gravitate to a more bold and creative choice! How about you?
Choosing an Aurifil Thread to match perfectly is always a bit of fun for me, too!
Now let's talk quilt binding!! Do you prefer to attach your quilt binding by hand or by machine?? I'd love for you to share your go-to method and any tricks & tips of your own! ♥ Maureen
