Do you know how to bind projects using your backing?
Let me tell you, I’ve tried.
I’ve failed. A Lot.
But it’s something I want to improve on because sometimes, it is easier just to eliminate that step of putting on the binding, because it’s already there!
Okay, enough chatter, let’s get to it.
The wonderful Allison Harris from Cluck Cluck Sew will show you exactly how you can bind your quilt, using the backing in 7 easy steps. Head on over here for the tutorial.
Allison does let you in a few things to consider when using this method.
“Now there are a couple of reasons I don’t love this method:
1. It’s hard to square up the quilt and keep the edges nice and straight. So I only use this on small things.
2. You have to plan so your backing fabric will also look great as your binding fabric.
3. If you quilt to the edge of your quilt top…you’re going to see it in the binding of the quilt on the back. I normally wouldn’t quilt to the edge using this method and instead quilt 1” away from the edge or so…but it was an afterthought with this little quilt.”
What do you think?
