Joining the Ends of a Binding

by Aimee

Just back from our annual Quilting in the Woods Retreat. So many of the ladies had questions about binding and how to finish. “What is the formula?” one asked. So I decided to do a short video on how to join the ends of the binding.

The formula is simple, take the size of your binding and subtract 1/8″ (e.g. 2″ – 1/8″ = 1 7/8″) this is the measurement you use when overlapping the binding.

This is a free video available to both members and non-members. If you’re ready for more clear and easy to follow video tutorials, sign up for membership now and become a master quilter in the comfort of your home!

P.S. new dates for QITW for next year is Jan 10-13th 2013. Price is $325 (includes lodging, food and laughter!).

Bob,Would you be willing to share your story & photos with the people and president of Tanzania?As you may know, this year Tanzania celebrates 50 yrs of independence. And many of us who have visited Tanzania and fallen in love with the country/people/wildlife/Kilimanjaro would like to help them celebrate. We're collecting stories and more at Some will appear in Tanzanian media as well as a book we'll give the president in Dec. for Independence Day.Thank you,Daniel Dorr

Allô Yvan,J’ai bien aimé lire ta description du trajet train-autobus vers Gaspé. C’est une région que j’aime beaucoup, que j’ai visitée souvent pour y avoir des amis encore (à Maria en fait) mais aussi parce que mon fils a habité Gaspé plusieurs années avant de revenir à Québec.Je reviendrai sûrement faire un tour sur ton site pour prendre connaissance d’autres tiennes observations, de voyage ou autres.Salut!SuzanneSuzanne Faguy (du groupe d’espagnol)

Whenever I have done my binding this way I wind up with way too much fabric. What am I doing wrong?

I’ve been researching this technique a lot lately, and I’m totally intrigued. I’m a crocheter mainly who wants to knit as a change, but much more comfortable with a crochet hook. I’m always finding new techniques I want to try, and this is at the top of the list. The only problem is finding supplies – they don’t seem to be anywhere around me. I’d absolutely love to win this kit!!Keep up with the posts, as I need all the help I can get in getting started.

oi ihana karhu! luulin, ettei tuo olisi mahdollista. tosin tuskin kimalaisetkaan osaisi lentää, jos tarkemmin ajattelee. sehän on ihan fysiikan lakien vastaista (mutta ne ei tiedä sitä, ja siksi lentää, sanoi joku viisas) 🙂

Would appreciate it if you add forums or something, it would be a perfect way for your clients to interact. Great job
