Great Tips for Crisp Corners, Too!
Have you ever put off binding a quilt because you’re unsure how to get crisp smooth results? Or, have you ended up with lumpy corners or tucks where the ends of the binding meet? Many quilters have problems with those two areas, but they both can be simple and flawless with the right techniques.
In the following video Julie Cefalu shows you exactly how to achieve crisp mitered corners. Plus, she demonstrates her expert technique for connecting the binding ends into one smooth length of binding that lays down and fits perfectly.
Whether you’ve quilted a little or a lot, Julie’s tips are sure to help you achieve beautiful results when finishing your quilts.

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!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
That was the best tutorial on diagonal binding joining that I’ve ever seen. Thanks
I’ve always had problems joining the binding ends. I even bought a binding tool, but never was able to learn how to use it. Your tutorial is great. Thank you for sharing.
I will never do a binding any other way.
Excellent tutorial! Thank you for such a great presentation.
Easy to follow tutorial, I also use my walking foot to sew binding on. How wide are your binding strips? Thanks!
