I've been hand quilting for quite a bit on this, it's what I've been taking to my Monday quilt group and it's now all done.
When I was teaching this is my beginner's quilt 5 week class, the class would have been 2 1/2" squares, I cut mine down for a table topper size.
HERE is my binding tutorial for you
On a regular size quilt, I would cut my binding strips 2 1/2" wide, but on this little one, I cut them 1 1/4" wide.
I like, little quilts to have little binding.
All the sewing is the same, 1/4" seam allowance.
But, I like to trim the backing and batting about in half.
This is before the binding is turned and sewn down. You can turn it under and see what you like before trimming around the entire quilt. I like to hand sew the binding down, I can get the corners, better and yes, you will have to mess with them a bit to get them perfect, they are VERY tiny.
Have to LOVE hand quilting !
