Quilt Binding Instructions: Make Your Own Binding

I’m ready to bind this quilt, so I thought I’d write up a little tutorial about how to make your own quilt binding. It’s easy to make. The only tricky part, in my opinion, is that it’s a little cumbersome because you’re dealing with such long pieces of material.

***I always say this, but there are definitely several ways to make quilt binding, this is just how I do it. I’m not saying this is the “right” way, it’s just my way.***

First, measure the length and width of your quilt. Don’t worry about being exact, it’s good to be generous with your measurements. (I used my quilt ruler to measure because it was close by, use whatever you have.)

My Plus Quilt is Coming Right Along

I am getting little to nothing done during these final days of Kindergarten. Between Field Day, Awards Ceremony and soccer, there just is no time for anything. Where does the time go? I have managed to sneak upstairs and make 11 blocks for this quilt, which was once this, and I just love it.  Here’s a sneak peek of 9 of them.

Charm Pack Quilt Updated

I got my charm pack quilt (aka the easiest quilt ever) quilted. I still need to bind it, but I think I’m going to have to order a little fabric to do so. In the mean time, I wanted to show you what I’ve done.

(And if these pictures look a little different, yes, I downloaded a trial of Photoshop and have been playing with it. It’s not as complicated as I thought it would be. It’s actually kind of fun. I discovered this tilt “look” totally on accident, I’m trying to decide if I like it or if it’s a little annoying.)
