BINDING


My Red and White is ready for binding...yahoo!!!!
I like to put binding on with my walking foot. This way I do not need to hand adjust feeding the material through the machine....in other words "it is a time saver".


It's odd to me but I don't usually miter my binding..{ guess I can just be lazy}, but I did for the Red and White.
Sure makes the corners easy and so Good looking. !


Those corners are lying PERFECT.


Bought these new gadgets in Cody for binding. I tend to be a GADGET girl.
They are for machine sewing the binding on, I am hand sewing the binding on this quilt.



One side is flat and one side rounded. It helps measure the edge of your binding so you can sew on a perfect binding with out running any stitches on the top of your quilt.
I will test it out on a smaller quilt to work out the kinks first and let you know if they are worth their pricey price !
