The Many Ways to Bind a Quilt

Sew For Fifteen is all about quilt binding this October. There are so many ways to bind a quilt – some include hand sewing, others are all done by machine. Some add a decorative element to your quilt, and others are done to minimize the impact of the binding on the finished look of your quilt. I asked the Sew For Fifteen participants to help me make a list of binding techniques, and they were so helpful. I’ve included a list of binding techniques, and found at least one tutorial for each technique so you can try whichever binding technique has been sitting on your quilting to-do list.
