Binding By Machine
OK, I've already given you the tutorial on doing your binding the "traditional" way, where you sew the binding to the front of your quilt, wrap it around to the back, and hem in place by hand. You can find that tutorial here:
But what happens if you're in a hurry and need to do it by machine? What if your backing is fleece or some other material that just doesn't lend itself well to hand stitching? You can always do the entire job by machine.
This tutorial assumes that you have no experience at all with making quilt bindings, so it will take you through all the steps from cutting your strips to finishing with the machine. You can download it here.
Like the other tutorial, it is somewhat large and may take a while to download, so please be patient. It is also full of photos and lots of good information so you can successfully bind your quilt. Have fun!
