The Basics Of Binding

 In this 3-hour class, you will learn how to:

            - effortlessly cut your binding strips, both straight-of-grain and on the bias

            - properly miter the strips together to reduce bulk at the seams

            - achieve flawless corners

            - easily and accurately “close the loop” for a beautiful “seamless” look


We will cover two techniques:

            - attaching your binding in preparation for a hand-finish

            - complete by-machine binding


Fabric Requirements:

           One (1) pre-made fat quarter sandwich, spray-basted or quilted together

            Two (2) fat quarters or ½ yd for binding – DO NOT pre-cut your strips!

            Cutting supplies (rotary cutter, cutting mat)

            Ruler, long (such as 6 ½” x 24 ½”)

            Ruler, small (such as 1” x 6” or Add-a-Quarter)
