This is Especially Helpful for Narrow Borders!
Do you want to quilt right up to the binding on your quilt? Or, is the border narrow and you need more to grab onto? Consider sewing on the binding before you quilt the border (leaving the binding unattached on the back).
Doing so allows you to see exactly how much room you have to work with. You can quilt right up to the binding without danger of any of the quilting design being cut off when the binding is applied.
There are other benefits, as well, which we’ll let Beth from Cooking Up Quilts explain.
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!
