As I have been doing a lot of binding trying to finish up Quilty Hugs. I have three more I’m trying to finish this week. I thought I would share again my method for joining up binding so that it fits perfectly every time. Hope you find it useful. Leaving a 6″ tail begin sewing binding on. Continue sewing binding around quilt. Leave a 10-12″ gap between the beginning of the binding and the end. Finger bind until ends meet. Fold eachside back on th itself. Leaving a 1/2″ space in between. Trim ends so that from the 1/2″ gap they are half of the width of your binding. (ie.. 1 1/4″ if binding is 2 1/2″) Sew a diagonal seam to join binding ends. Trim to 1/4″ Wha la your binding fits perfectly. Sew into place. You are now ready to turn and hand stitch in place.
