Typical straight-grain binding is usually perfect for quilts with straight sides and square corners. However, if you’re making a quilt with a curved edge or with inside and outside corners you’ll find that bias binding is much easier to work with. It has “give” that allows you to ease it into place.
The thought of having to make bias binding can be a bit intimidating if you haven’t done it before (and even if you have!). Fortunately, we found a video that walks you through every step. You’ll soon discover that it’s easier than you may have imagined.
Kimberly Jolly of Fat Quarter Shop has put together an excellent video about bias binding. You’ll learn how to cut and make the binding, as well as how to stitch it onto a quilt.
There are many useful tips in this video that even experienced quilters will appreciate. Follow Kimberly’s steps and you’ll soon master this valuable technique.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
