Alrighty friends, are you ready to sew binding on your quilt?! This article is part 2 in a 3-part Quilt Binding Tutorial series. If you haven’t prepared your quilt and binding yet, head over to read this post and learn what steps I take to make my quilt binding.
To get started, I want to give you two main options for how to bind your quilt in this quilt binding tutorial. The way I first learned from my grandma is the hand binding method. It involved sewing the binding down to your quilt with a machine but then flipping it over and sewing little invisible stitches. Another method is machine quilt binding where you skip the hand sewing and instead use your machine to sew down both sides of the binding. Machine binding is quicker and some find it easier. Whichever method you choose, I hope you challenge yourself to continue learning and enjoy the process!
This article covers how to bind your quilt by machine, and next week’s post will be about TWO different styles of hand sewing the binding onto your quilt. Whichever method you choose, the first few steps are the same!
