  1. Thanks for the neat tip on self binding. I wanted to copy it to put in my "Binder of Quilt Tips" but only the 1st page would print. Wonder why?

    1. Give it another try, I'm writing on the blog this morning (some huge images) and I may have something to do with it ? ?

    2. You could try to copy and paste the pics and text onto a blank page in your word program. Then you should be able to print the pages.

  2. This is my favorite way of binding a quilt. My grandmother did this so until I joined a guild and started attending shows, I thought *everyone* did binding this way! According to Teddy Pruett, this type of binding is characteristic of the "poor Southern" region of our country.

    1. Poor Southern?? What does that mean? I grew up Southern and never heard this term. We were taught different ways to bind a quilt, and we didn't consider ourselves "poor". What region of the south do you consider "poor southern"?

    2. Sara,
      I've not heard of "Poor Southern" way, but at my house it's the get it done and use the quilt way.

    3. Yep, I agree. I am from the South and it was the frugal way.

  3. I love these. They are so pretty, and I love the idea of self binding. I have a link party called Wednesdays Adorned From Above Blog Hop and would love to have you share this and any other posts with everyone. It runs from Tuesday night through midnight Sunday. Here is the link to the party.

  4. Great tip! I wondered how to make those pretty corners.

  5. I have been told this is not the correct way as it is a weak binding. Phooey! I do this and have not had a single problem.

  6. I have had the same experience of a couple of people "looking down their nose" at this type of binding when I've used it, saying nothing but saying TONS by their expressions. I agree - phooey!! If it works and gets the quilt into use, it is the correct way to finish a quilt! Thanks for sharing.

  7. This is my favorite way to bind a quilt. I use it often.

  8. I'm sure that Poor Southern is just an expression. It is a less expensive and easier way to bind - lighten up, people!

  9. I have done this on my last few quilts. Place mats, too. I like it! I'm not so sure about it 'wearing out faster', as another commenter said- I would think that a continuous fold from the back that you can machine stitch onto the front would be a heck of a lot sturdier than having to hand stitch a separate binding. Despite lots of washing, my place mats are holding up very well.

  10. I'm in the process of making my third quilt for the third grandchild, and a forth in the waiting :) so I think I will try this, it looks great, easier and sturdier too, so good timing that I saw this tip, thanks!

  11. Trying this for the first time. Great Tutorial. Thank you.

  12. Can you use self binding for quilts that are not square? Tutorials I have seen have all been on projects that are square.thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  13. With a project to bind not being square it's all about the pleats or folds you have to make the binding lay flat, I think I'd do regular if not square. Please let me know if you try it !!

  21. These would make amazing gifts for Christmas! My wife has been bored out of her mind staying at home. She likes to be outside, but with the current situation that isn't exactly a good idea. Hopefully, this keeps her busy! I tried weight loss hypnosis but that didn't turn out to well.

  24. To be honest, I was afraid of letting the guys at www.commercialpaintersbrisbane.com know I was into quilts. When I found out there was another who was into the same thing, I was thrilled!
