DIY Video: Quilt Binding on a Machine!
Posted on 03 August 2017
Whether you're a seasoned quilter or a newbie, one thing is always true: sewing the binding on a quilt is... kind of the worst.
The fun & creative patchwork part is done, the quilt sandwich is done, the actual quilting is done, and you're ready to reveal your glorious new quilt -- except for one thing. You still have to do the binding. And no matter how you spin it, binding is kind of a drag.
Traditionally, the binding on a quilt would be sewn by hand, or at least finished by hand on the back side of the quilt. That's how many of us learned (even modern quilters), and how many of us still do it. But that takes a lot of time, and can lead to a lot of procrastination and/or dread.
So! We made a video to share our favorite method of attaching a quilt binding entirely by machine. The whole quilt is bound in one fell swoop, with mitered corners to boot!
Click above to check it out! And click below if you'd like to try it out with our Super Easy Black & White Quilt Kit, which uses this method in the pattern and comes with double-fold bias tape in the kit.
If you use the tutorial, we'd love to see! Share your pics and tag us @brooklyncraftcompany and #brooklyncraftcompany so we can check out your projects!
