Susie’s Magic Binding – from Marti’s 52 Quilts
Here is another great tutorial on how to sew a binding totally by machine. I have got to try this one it looks great and gives a nice contrasting trim on the front of the binding. (Note for Quilts of Valor quilters – they say that this is accepted by the Quilts of Valor as an alternative to hand finished binding)
- For this technique, you will need a main binding color and an accent color. Of course, you can use the same color for both — but why bother with this technique, then?
- 2. Trim the excess batting back backing from your quilt. Then measure the perimeter and add 10″ or so.
