If you machine quilt, why not machine bind? Suzanne believed there had to be a way to apply a beautiful machine binding. She didn't like the blind-hem and decorative stitching methods taught by many , and she didn't have time to hand stitch . After years of searching, she developed a technique to create a tight, 1/4 inch binding by machine. Discover this amazing technique to finish your quilts quickly and easily. Two other innovative machine bindings, including a beautiful double binding will also be shown. Learn to create perfectly mitered corners and an easy lumpless finish. Bind a small quilt in class

Materials Needed:

  • A small quilt to bind (no curved edges.)
  • Strips of binding fabric 2 1/8" wide. Do not join strips together.
  • To find number of strips to cut, multiply 2 x (length+width of quilt). Add 24". Divide by 40 and round up to a whole number.
  • Cut this number of strips.
  • Sewing machine in good working order with manual and all feet.
  • Walking foot isn't mandatory, but strongly suggested. Edge-joining presser foot. Pfaff owners use a narrow edge foot. Bernina owners use #10 foot.
  • 5-groove pintuck/cording foot (works best) or an applique foot (this foot has a narrow centered groove underneath, like a pintuck foot.) Basic sewing supplies (scissors to cut threads, seam ripper, bobbins, etc.)
  • Small rotary ruler, Pins (fine-shaft suggested) and one hand-sewing needle
  • Fabric marker (#2 pencil, chalk pencil, blue water-soluble pen, etc) that will show on your binding fabric
  • Thread to match your binding fabric
  • Monofilament thread (Sew Art or YLI Wonder recommended)
  • Water-soluble thread
