HQ quilting tip of the day: Love it or hate it, all quilts need to be bound. (My mother binds all of my quilts. I do the machine part and she does the hand-sewing part. Thank you, Mom!) To make it easier for her, I invested in lots of binding clips so she wouldn’t get stuck with the pins. To make it easier on myself, I use a walking foot to attach the binding to the quilt.
But most importantly, remember to make sure the binding is tight around the quilt edge and complete “stuffed” with fabric and batting. It not only will look better, but it will wear better too. Check out this great tutorial for binding your quilts.
