I tried a new binding technique this time. You can read about it here.
After trimming down to a scant 1/4 inch, I turn the binding over, and sew down with a 6 mm basting stitch, using the same color thread, 1/8 inch from the edge. This gives you a little lip to work with.
After basting, I can wash and start using my quilt. Then, when I have a road trip, or am watching a movie at home with the family (yea, I had to get a tiny flashlight cuz the kids like ALL THE LIGHTS OFF), I work on hand stitching the back down.
I like to take out the basting stitches every few feet. It gives me that satisfying feeling :)
I'm interested in your thoughts on "hand sewing the binding down". Leave a comment sharing your ideas.
