To celebrate the wonderful time I’ve had in my sewing room these holidays, I thought I’d share with you how I join my fabric strips for the binding on my quilts.
Now I must say this technique isn’t my own, I have used Sharon Schamber’s tutorial, and made a slight change.
I don’t have a problem with using glue on my quilts but I know there are many who do, so this technique removes that issue.
I use Craftworks Kids Paste, it is non toxic and washes out in water.
First cut your fabric strips to your specific length and width. These bindings are cut 2”
The above shows applying glue to the edge of the fabric fold, then placing the next strip over the triangle fold and using the iron, heat setting the glue.
As you can see the glue is only left on the excess fabric that was cut off in the last step.
Hope this tutorial is of some use to you.
Thanks for visiting.
