Perfect Mitered Corners – Quilting Technique

Adding Binding to your Quilt

There are a few different ways to bind your quilt but I machine bind my quilt as I find it easier than hand sewing. You can purchase binding but you can also make it yourself – I will share a way to make it in a future tutorial.

1. After completing the top stitching of your quilt – give your quilt a quick iron

2. Line up your binding alongside your quilt

Helpful Tip – Always start and finish your binding along the longest length of your quilt

3. Pin your binding every 2-3cm along the perimeter of your quilt until the first corner

4. Create a mitered corner and pin into place by taking your binding the opposite direction and folding neatly against the corner to the correct direction. Pin vertically to hold in a perfect position.

5. Continue with steps 2-4 until you have gone around the whole quilt

6. Take your quilt to the machine and follow the pressed seam to secure the first side of your binding to the quilt

Please Note –Remove the safety pins or clips as you go around the quilt. Please be careful not to sew over the safety pins or clips as you will go through a few needles very quickly.

7. Fold the binding over the edge of the quilt and secure the other side of the binding to the back of the quilt

8. Take your quilt to the machine and follow alongside the edge to secure the other side of the binding

Your Quilt is now Complete!!!!!
