Binding is the final step to a finished quilt, and the one that is most likely to be put off. There are many reasons why quilters tend to delay binding, one of which is that it’s easy to produce puckers and unsightly bulges.
Fortunately, there are easy ways to tackle the problem areas while creating a polished finish. In the following video, Tammy from Shabby Fabrics demonstrates her “magic” binding method.
While she does not go through the entire binding process, she does highlight the areas where problems are most likely to occur. You may be as amazed as we were to see how she produces perfect results. It works like magic!
The next video shows the method being used to bind a full quilt. You’ll find more detailed instructions for all of the tricky parts, especially for joining the ends of the binding.

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!
