  • ruler
  • rotary cutter
  • fabric for binding


Step 1:

Cut your 2 and 1/2 inch binding strips. To make a long strip for binding, sew them with a small seam allowance, and small stitch length, trim the seams and iron them open.

Step 2:

Take the long strip to your iron board and iron it in half.

Step 3:

When sewing your binding, don’t sew at the beginning. Leave 6 inches from the edge. Match the raw edges of the binding and quilt. Sew a little bit bigger than a quarter-inch seam. Just set the binding, do not stretch it.

Step 4:

When you are getting towards the corner, about a quarter inch from the bottom edge, stop stitching and back tack. Turn your quilt, and fold your binding to a 45-degree angle outside the quilt. Fold it down towards the quilt, aligned with the raw edge.

Step 5:

Continue sewing with a quarter inch on top of that fold with a quarter-inch seam allowance then once you reach just a quarter of an inch away from the edge, flip it and sew on the other side.  Do the same for the other sides until you reach where you started. Sew the ends together before binding so it.

Step 6:

Pull the seam open. Turn the binding to the back and stitch to the ditch. This means you are going to stitch where the two fabrics come together. On the corner, you want them to be at a 45-degree angle.
