Few things in life are as satisfying as binding a quilt while curled up on the couch with a cup of tea and a good movie! Hand binding is easy, relaxing, and for many quilters, their favorite part of making a quilt. If you dislike the look of machine binding, are making an heirloom quilt, or want to have a scalloped edge, then this is the class for you. Hand stitching gives you more options when deciding how to finish a quilt. You can choose prairie points, rickrack edging, facings, or extra wide binding without having to worry about stitches showing on the front. Add this traditional skill to your quilting repertoire.

In this on-demand web seminar you will learn:

  • What supplies you need
  • How to prepare a quilt for hand binding
  • How to use binding clips, pins, hair clips, fusible web, even glue to hold binding in place for stitching
  • Blind (slip) stitch and ladder stitch
  • The secret to getting a full binding (and why you want it)
  • How to professionally finish mitered corners
  • Techniques for binding scallops, and how to finish prairie point and rickrack edges
  • When and how to use facings instead of binding
  • Why and how to apply extra-wide binding

Laura says: "I love the way hand-finished binding looks! Somehow it seems more personal than machine binding and I know I won't have binding stitches showing on the front of my quilt. It's easy to learn and I find that hand binding gives me the feeling of being connected to the quilters of long ago. Plus, it gives me the opportunity to savor my latest 'baby', to spend that last bit of gratifying time with one project before starting another."
