How to Bind a Quilt:

1)  Trim off the excess batting.  You will want to fold back the backing fabric so you don’t catch it when you are trimming!


2)  Measure from the quilt border out- 1″ and trim


3)  Fold over the backing fabric to line up with the border


4)  Fold this over one more time -this time is overlaps the border area


5)  Stitch in place.  I kept the walking foot on and it helped alot!  The binding didn’t have any pucker spots at all!
