This binding hack is sure make your binding easier, faster and more consistent!
I’ve been doing this for years, mostly when I need to get a quilt photographed for a deadline, but realized you all might like to know this awesome trick when one of my friends told me how much easier and faster it was to bind one of our quilts because I had glued the binding down first with Steam-a-Seam.
In this video I show you how I use Steam-a-Seam to secure the binding to the back of my quilt with an iron before I sew it down. The result is perfect miters, consistent spacing on the front and back of the quilt and bindings that always fill all the way to the edge.
This is great if you are looking for a way to speed up your binding, or if you have trouble keeping the edges folded over as you sew binding by hand.
It also is great for machine quilt binding, because you have everything secured in place ahead of time and you know it looks great before you start stitching.
Enjoy this binding hack and let me know in the comments how you like it when you try it out on your next quilt!
