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

The Quilt Ladies NOW on Kindle and NOOK 

How to make Quilt Binding Tutorial and How to Hand Stitch the Bind


How to make Quilt Binding Tutorial and How to Hand Stitch the Bind

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

 How to make Quilt Binding Tutorial and How to Hand Stitch the Bind


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

How to make Quilt Binding Tutorial and How to Hand Stitch the Bind


How to make Quilt Binding Tutorial and How to Hand Stitch the Bind

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
How to make Quilt Binding Tutorial and How to Hand Stitch the Bind

Sew the binding with a ¼ inch seam allowance. Stop ¼ from the edge. Back stitch a few stitches.
How to make Quilt Binding Tutorial and How to Hand Stitch the Bind



How to make Quilt Binding Tutorial and How to Hand Stitch the Bind

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

How to make Quilt Binding Tutorial and How to Hand Stitch the Bind

Do this on all four corners


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

How to make Quilt Binding Tutorial and How to Hand Stitch the Bind

Pin well, fold over and match the ends

How to make Quilt Binding Tutorial and How to Hand Stitch the Bind

Press

How to make Quilt Binding Tutorial and How to Hand Stitch the Bind

Open up and mark your SEWING line 

How to make Quilt Binding Tutorial and How to Hand Stitch the Bind

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

How to make Quilt Binding Tutorial and How to Hand Stitch the Bind

Pull it over the machine stitches.

Pin and I like to hand stitch

How to make Quilt Binding Tutorial and How to Hand Stitch the Bind

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, 

How to make Quilt Binding Tutorial and How to Hand Stitch the Bind

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


How to make Quilt Binding Tutorial and How to Hand Stitch the Bind

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.
