Blog surfing today and I saw that Maureen Cracknell Handmade asked a question about “favorite” binding techniques.
After I posted my response, I thought…COMPILE a list….so here it is.
My all time favorite binding is here – I call it “Binding with a Flange” – http://www.52quilts.com/2012/05/tuesday-tutorial-susies-magic-binding.html
I used this method in JJ’s Memorial Quilt (https://stitchinggrandma.wordpress.com/2013/05/26/loving-the-flange/ )
My favorite “Celeb” does her’s by machine and has a tutorial on her blog – http://patsloan.typepad.com/quiltershome/pat-sloan-machine-binding-tutorial.html
My favorite “video” comes from Missouri Star – where she not only shows you how, but Jenny explains joining those pesky ends using “The Binding Tool by TQM products: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ex2PajesRvU — Missouri Star “The Binding Tool Explained” (and a bonus: if you have the TQM Binding tool – there is a great video for another use of that tool….make a table runner! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjGifl2m_3k ) Jenny likes to “hand finish” the binding.
Others mentioned on Maureen’s comments were –
http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/2008/10/binding-tutorial.html – nice tutorial on hand finishing.
So; save this page for a rainy day and check out some methods you may not have tried. Let me know what works best for you, and who taught you that method. I always love a good LINK…. 🙂
UPDATE TO THE LIST:
After I wrote this post on 21 Nov, I thought I might add a new one to my list…great instructions and great photo’s. http://www.canoeridgecreations.com/2013/02/double-fold-binding-tutorial-part-one.html
If you popped in a second time, I hope finding that additional link is helpful in some way to you today.
