Our Fall Tour

Pin It

We traveled most of September and I shopped MANY quilt shops. With Son #2 being SO close to Hamilton, MO. I of course HAD to go to Missouri Star Quilt Company.  

IT'S SO FUN ! 

This is my second trip and it's changed a lot since this past April. 
This is not a paid commercial, I was the one spending......
Here is their site 

I asked to take pictures, "Sure anything you like, take pictures of everything."
Missouri Star Quilt Company building

This is the main shop, they also have a civil war shop, a seasonal shop and a solid shop. A restaurant, a diner, a bakery and a tap house and a class room with sleeping for classes.....

Fabric from Missouri Star Quilt Company

I was in a bit of PINK, Love it

Quilt Binding Tutorial and How to Hand Stitch the Binding Down

Pin It

I'm sharing the way "I" do quilt binding. Like everything in quilting there are MANY ways. This is the way "I" do it ! ! 

Cut your strip 2 ½” inches wide and long enough to go 

all the around your quilt PLUS 6-8 Inches

More is ALWAYS better with this ! 





 Cut enough strips to go around the outside edge of your quilt.
Sew all strips together with a 45-degree angle.
 Sew and Trim to ¼ inch seam allowance
Open and Press and trim any ends. 
Do this to make all binding needed.




 


BUT ALWAYS check YOUR BOBBIN THREAD, make sure you have enough to make it all the way around the quilt. NOTHING worse than to stop and fill or change a bobbin! 


This is where "I" do it a bit different, I just can't get the seam right using the fold the corner way, I do a straight seam here as shown





Start sewing about 5-6 inches from your binding end, 
Sew the binding with a ¼ inch seam allowance. 


 I mark with a pin on each corner

Sew the binding with a ¼ inch seam allowance. Stop ¼ from the edge. Back stitch a few stitches.




Fold the binding back.
Fold binding back down on to the Quilt. Match up edges.
A diagonal fold will form between the layers and a straight fold on top. Do corners one at a time, but


Do this on all four corners


Stop sewing about 4-5 inches from the first end. 


Pin well, fold over and match the ends


Press


Open up and mark your SEWING line 


On both sides


This is your SEWING line, Sew and trim seam.


Continue sewing the binding to the quilt. 

The right side of the quilt


You will need to trim your batting, I like to trim mine about an 1/8 of an inch from the binding
edge



Fold the binding open


Pull it over the machine stitches. 


Pin and I like to hand stitch


Blind Stitch, I like to hide my knot in the inside.
Single thread, I use about 18 inches at a time. 
Catch just a bit of fabric on the binding, 


Take a stitch straight across and then back into the binding just a few threads.



Make sure your thread matches and as below, I have about 6-8 stitches down in this photo


 Stitch all the way into the fold.

Pull your needle out and fold other corner over, 


Sew the corners closed on BOTH sides. Back side here


Push needle through and stitch the front corner seam closed. 

Push needle through to the back and continue sewing around the quilt.



Finished corners.
 Do all Four
